Online Learning Consortium International Conference 2014
ED MAP is attending and exhibiting at the Online Learning Consortium (formerly, Sloan-C) International Conference 2014. Plans call for Vice President of Sales Andrew J. Herd, Administration Manager Brad Beatty, Consultant Walt Kirby, Director of Course Materials Strategy Eszter Major-Rohrer, Director of Client Development Jason Fields, Client Development Manager Nikole Morris and Director of Communications JoAnn Rollins to head down to Lake Buena Vista for the event. Be sure to stop by our booth — or see us in sessions — to say hello and mutually share what we’ve been up to.
Plus, Eszti will also be presenting an exhibitor’s showcase, Navigating the Landscape of Learning, where she’ll introduce our CURATE professional services. Faculty and student frustration with increasingly expensive textbooks, plentiful alternative content options, and growing recognition and acceptance of web-based academic resources are driving interest in innovative ways to think about the format, content and role of course materials. Reconsidering traditional textbooks to develop and utilize course content that is relevant, fresh and cost-effective can support better success, retention and graduation rates.
ED MAP’s CURATE services help faculty and curriculum developers successfully navigate today’s complex content landscape. With no single content repository containing the breadth and depth of relevant available content, CURATE Professional utilizes a holistic approach to expand discovery channels.
