- iPad and Apple TV
As the College of Education offers the freshmen in 2014 – 2015 an iPad program (one without a Pell caveat or a $200 additional charge), learning online and anywhere is easy. Faulty have increasingly integrated Apple TV and iPad into the classroom for taking advantage of the mirroring and mobile capabilities of iOS devices. Apple TV and iPad allow for change that improves the soft skills learning of students (e.g., collaboration, discussion, motivation) whilst still being focused on specific learning tasks using proximal, student-centered flipped classroom model.
TAP-it™ is a touch accessible platform interactive technology. The College of Education adds this device to the group of products that enable the faculty and students to have the ADA compliant interactive learning station. Teachers can integrate this technology into their classroom and create accessibility for students with special needs.
The College of Education offers a variety of assessment formats. All full-time students at College of Education have their own LiveText accounts for electronic assignment/assessment and portfolio development. LiveText allows the College of Education for seamless integration and data reporting to effectively measure learning goals and institutional objectives for accreditation and continuous improvement.
The College of Education offers a variety of online courses. We also offer traditional courses that integrate an online component. The majority of College of Education’s course offerings are supported by online resources available through the University’s learning management system, Sakai.
