An Exploration of Interactive Online Methodologies Used To Effectively Engage Students
This presentation provides an overview of various methods of creating an interactive/participatory online course. In the Winter session of 2012/2013, Health 101 was taught online in an interactive setting. Assignments such as discussion boards, recording diets, and reflection papers were used to create a sense of community, interest, and make the course more applicable to the students. The presentation also demonstrates methods that can be used to overcome barriers met in the traditional classroom setting and effectively educate students off site.

Using the iPad in an Educational Setting
A little over three years since Apple's iPad first premiered and the tablet has become a staple in many backpacks and bookbags. The size and portability make the iPad an ideal companion for both classwork and research. This session will focus on some of the more general uses in educational settings. The first part will review "cloud" services and how to make best use of the iPad for PDFs and other documents. The second section will focus on a variety of free (or fairly inexpensive) apps. The final section will be open for Q&A as well as for attendees to share how they have used the iPad.
