Make Virtual Exchange and Online Global Learning Happen with Innovative Learning Technology: 

While the pandemic restricts international travel and face-to-face cultural exchanges, IUPUI has utilized innovative learning technology to offer students worldwide courses, a system and solution developed at the IUPUI CyberLab commercialized through CourseNetworking. Dr. Ian McIntosh, Director of International Partnerships at IUPUI, will present an example of a virtual study abroad program that he is conducting this Fall. Forty-five students from the IUPUI Honors College and Business students from the University of Rwanda in central Africa have been brought together, one on one and collectively, to learn about each other's culture, history, and politics, and also meeting the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in very different settings. Dr. McIntosh will demonstrate his course design architecture's unique features, such as social posting, ePortfolio, incentive badges, and certification, that made the virtual exchange experience possible. He will also talk about the various challenges he and his Rwandan colleagues have faced. Attendees of this presentation will leave the session much more confident about adding global learning and virtual exchange to their online teaching.

Next-Generation of Learning Technology for Learning Effectiveness in the 'New Normal' Era:

This presentation will discuss the conceptual design and framework for the next generation of learning technology, a framework, and thinking beyond the current legacy Learning Management System (LMS) being used for online courses. For the last 23 years, the IUPUI CyberLab has engaged in the research, development, and entrepreneurship of new learning technology solutions and systems. The result has been developing and commercializing several high profile systems such as Oncourse (Sakai), ANGEL Learning, Epsilen, and CourseNetworking (CN), a new toolbox combining LMS and ePortfolio for career development and learning assessment. The CN technology tools are currently being used in 160+ countries, both for free and low educational pricing. The IUPUI CyberLab and CourseNetworking teams will discuss and demonstrate various use cases and how individual instructors and students can utilize the various CN tools for classroom teaching, learning assessment, and engagement.
