June eLCC meeting with LCCC!

Laramie County Community College is excited to host the June 2018 eLCC meeting up here in Cheyenne, WY!

Please feel free to arrive by 8:30 AM if you want to head up early. Coffee and pastries will be provided prior to the meeting start. The address is: 1400 College Dr. If you are physically attending, please RSVP for lunch by 6/13 at noon, noting any dietary restrictions. If you wish to attend virtually, please RSVP (to let Brandon know that you’re going to be a virtual attendee) and he will share out a link to a Zoom meeting prior to 6/15.

Easiest directions are to get on I-25 North and follow it out of Colorado. Take Exit 7 once in Wyoming and take a right off the highway onto College Dr. Follow College Dr. for several miles. Once you’ve passed South Greeley Highway (US 85), look for an entrance to LCCC on the left (J.O. Reed Loop) and follow that around the campus to the right. There are two lots adjacent to the Pathfinder building, neither require a permit. See the map above for more clarity. If you are headed up US 85, go north take a right on College Dr. once you get into Cheyenne (should be the second light) and the last bit of instructions are the same.

The PD is from a faculty member on LCCC’s Virtual Cadaver. The presenter is Josh Schmerge, and his plan is to provide a tech demo/training on the platform, provide his experience with benefits to his instruction, and then offer for participants to try out the virtual cadaver. There will be folks attempting to share this PD opportunity via Google Hangout for anybody attending remotely.

Yes, it is road construction season again in Fort Collins. Yahoo! My current recommendation is to take I-25 to the Prospect Exit. Head west on Prospect. After crossing College Avenue (major intersection) continue heading west until you get to Center Avenue. Turn right on Center Avenue and you can park in the Lake Street Parking Garage. The parking garage will be on your right. You can also pass the garage and take a left on Lake Street. There may be some street parking available. No guarantees. From the garage you will have about a five minute walk to the stadium.

Agenda:

I (Greg) will be at the stadium early and happy to welcome people who want to arrive early.

9:30-10:00am Networking, coffee, juice, & bagels

2018 eLCC Conference – Presenter Materials

Hello eLCC members! Please enjoy the following presenter materials from the recent 2018 eLCC conference.

Zoom into the REALS Room, Sally Cordrey and John Ferraro, Regis University

Experience this newly-equipped interactive classroom virtually through Zoom, a video conferencing tool. We will see the features of the REALS (Regis Engaging and Adaptive Learning Space) classroom at Regis University. Features include portable furniture, interactive touch screen display monitor, camera, and mics. This room is completely ADA compliant.

Sally presented at the conference while John was standing by in the REALS classroom at Regis. Sally introduced the REALS concept and showed a few photos of the room. Then Sally linked into Zoom and John took over to showcase the room. Sally then facilitated questions and answers between the participants and John.
