November Meeting at Aims

Hello Everyone,

Aims Community College is happy to announce we will be hosting the upcoming Friday, November 30th eLCC monthly meeting.

We will be meeting on the Greeley Campus , starting out in the new Facilities and Operations building on the NW side of the campus. We will host a presentation there and then move on to two different Maker-Spaces we have here at Aims CC.

(This pictures if from flickr….and too good not to post.)

Our campus map for the Greeley campus is located at, https://www.aims.edu/about/maps/ select the “Greeley Campus” directions and map from the webpage. Park in Lot P, Q or N and come to building H, or #13 on the map. I highly suggest coming in off the 34 bypass to Greeley Business district (10th Street) to 47th head South to 16th and come in on the east side of the campus.  There has been a change to the 20th Street access and you can no longer take a left by the Cornerstone building. You will get a ticket if you try to turn left off 20th street onto the campus. You don’t need to have a parking pass. I will make our Security and the Weld County Sheriff department aware of our visitors.

Dress for the weather! During your visit you will be walking a short distance between buildings. Greeley weather can be much different from Denver and even Ft. Collins! 🙂

Please RSVP by Tuesday, November 27th 12:00m pm, so that I can plan for enough lunches. If you have any special food requirements or allergies, identifying this in your RSVP will allow me know/what how to order food for you.

Our Agenda is tentatively set as:

10 – 1015: Welcome/Opening

1015-1115/1130: Professional Development 

1115/1130-12:00pm Lunch

12-2:00 pm Institutional Updates

My contact information is listed below, contact me if you have other questions.

Until then, Happy Thanksgiving and we look forward to hosting you on Friday, November 30th!

Thank you!

Photoquest with EDUCAUSE

Photoquest with eLearning Consortium of Colorado and EDUCAUSE

On Friday morning at the 2018 EDUCAUSE conference, we participated in the Photoquest with the EDUCAUSE Games and Learning Constituency Group. eLCC’s awards committee chose the top three for each category which you can see on these Google Slides! This was a fun mobile learning activity, but keep thinking how could you add this to a course development?

You can see all of the slides on this deck.

Reality is Broken Book Club

All eLCCers have been invited to join Educause’s Game & Learning Community’s November Book Club.

Read or re-read Reality is Broken and discuss during three Wednesday in November.
November 7, 4 and 21, we’ll be discussing it over twitter using the hashtag.
Tweetchats will take place from 430 pm – 530 pm MT.

Discussions are moderated by @GamerrLinguist and will use the hashtag #Read4Games.

Get the discussion questions and more info on how to participate in the Tweetchat at the book club site: https://sites.google.com/view/educause-glbc/

 

eLCC and Educause Collaboration!!!!!

We’re doing a pervasive game with Educause’s Games & Learning Constituency Group at the 2018 conference in Denver. It’s a photoquest using the mobile app GooseChase.

The photoquest starts at Big Blue Bear at the Colorado Convention and ends at the Tivoli on Auraria Campus.

It opens at noon on Wednesday October 31 and closes Friday November 2 at 10 am.
You can play on your own anytime from now until 10 am on Friday.

If you would like to join us we’ll be doing the photoquest at 9 am on Friday November 2nd. We’ll meet at the Big Blue Bear and we’d ask that you RSVP so we will look for you.

If you would like to go it on your own download the mobile app GooseChase. Make a quick account and then look for our photoquest which is named Educause Games & Learning Photoquest. Our game code is NJEBK1.

There are 5 missions to this game which comprise taking pictures and posting them to twitter using the hashtags #edu18 and #photoquest.

We (eLCC) will be sending our eLCC plushies to 5 of the photoquest posters. The eLCC Awards Committee with help from a few other eLCC members will be doing
a judge’s choice for each of the photos.

If you would like to know more about how we created this photoquest or a template of how to do – contact Kae Novak kae.novak@frontrange.edu
