We won’t be having a eLCC monthly meeting in August. Our next eLCC meeting will be our yearly retreat in September. So if you’d like to hang out with other eLCC members, your next opportunity will be this Wednesday August 1 or Thursday August 2 at the Colorado Learning and Teaching with Technology Conference (COLTT) at the University of Colorado-Boulder Campus.
Let us know what you are presenting!
Here’s the schedule of events. If you are attending or even better presenting, please let us know. We know already that a number of our members will be doing tech as both Office Hours on Wednesday and yes – the Lightboard is back on Thursday in the Idea Forge.
If you want to follow the conference on twitter, the hashtag is #COLTT2018. I think you could also throw in a second hashtag of #ELCC too!
Feel free to add pictures or 90 second videos you take to the eLCC Flickr group.
Thank you to everyone who attended our first ever Tech Trek at our July meeting!
We began with an hour long Tech Trek (we’ll send you over to our road map document for our different stops).

Report outs from the colleges
We have a research request from one of our members at CCD who also happens to be an advisee of our eLCC conference keynote, Brent Wilson.
Here is the information about her survey, please also share it with others at your institution.
My name is Aysenur Ozyer and I am a PhD student at the University of Colorado Denver. My dissertation examines how graduate students in IDT (Instructional Design and Technology) experience growth in their professional identities.
If you are a current master’s student in IDT, I invite you to participate in the study by completing the survey below. Your answers are anonymous. It will take about 15 mins of your time.

Thank you for your time and interest!
Teaching Learning Center
Community College of Denver
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.
We would like to say a big thank you to CSU for inviting us to their Rams’ football stadium for our May 2018 meeting! Thank you Greg and Al! The views were fabulous! We started with VIP view above and then moved into a room that gave us a view of the foothills and the practice stadium. There are more pictures up on our flickr site. Please add yours.
The session then continued with a welcome from Gwen Gorzelsky, the Executive Director of the The Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT) and three session on Learning Analytics, a session on using narratives and instructional designers for Academic Integrity and the CSU eText Initiative. We also learned about CSU’s pilot project on quality assurance.
To read more about the meeting and also share anything we missed please go to our Meeting Crowd Sourced google document.
CSU is looking forward to hosting the May monthly meeting of the eLearning Consortium. Here are the details regarding the meeting. Many of you have already indicated your interesting in joining us on May 18. If you have not done so already please RSVP by Tuesday, May 15 to firstname.lastname@example.org
The meeting will be held at the new CSU football stadium (on campus). We will meet in Room 6053, which is on the sixth floor. You will enter the football stadium on the west side and enter the Premium Section (it is marked). The entrance is directly across from the outdoor practice field. The elevator will be to your left when you enter. Room 6053 will be down the hall on the right side. There will be WiFi available.
Directions and Parking:
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.
I (Greg) will be at the stadium early and happy to welcome people who want to arrive early.
||Networking, coffee, juice, & bagels
||Presentations – topics include: Academic Integrity, OER and eTexts, and Analytics. These will be short presentations, but depending on questions we may carry over into lunch.

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.
