Did you know the University of Georgia's Cooperative Extension holds live online meetings each week to save its statewide user base time and travel dollars? Did you know that instructors at Ivy Tech Community College in Indiana conduct live virtual office hours with students who are located in distant pockets of the state? Did you know that Bristol Community College conducts emergency preparedness meetings, HR interviews, and faculty CMS and software training live online?
Collaborative technologies extend far beyond teaching and learning. This presentation features three experts from three uniquely different institutions who will share their creative non-instructional uses of collaborative technology to save time and money while simultaneously increasing attendance and productivity.
