Off-site events are being streamed more and more via CanvasLIVE. Couldn't make a CanvasCon? No worries, check out these past sessions. Can't attend a faculty seminar? We've got that, too (thanks to the collaboration of UCF & Ryan Seilhamer.) Wanna watch a Canvas Admin facilitate a live training workshop for students? CanvasLIVE streams those (thanks to Ryan Samn).
And now, Can-Innovate '17 Los Rios Colleges Educational Technology Conference (OEI) is coming to the CanvasLIVE!
Thanks to the efforts of Gregory Beyrer, who was on the organizing committee, FOUR (4) of the 30+ awesome sessions will be live-streamed! We caught up with Greg to learn more about this event!
Biray: Just the name makes this conference sound exciting. Can you tell us more about it?
Greg: Can•Innovate '17 is the fourth conference of this kind hosted by the Los Rios colleges (American River College, Cosumnes River College, Folsom Lake College, and Sacramento City College). The conference is an opportunity to showcase the creative use of technology to support student success, and this year we are very excited to partner with Instructure and the California Community Colleges Online Education Initiative (OEI).
Biray: This partnership is very cool! Can you share its goals with our Canvas users?
Greg: The OEI's goal is to help students complete their educational goals by increasing access to and success in high-quality online courses. This is done via the "OEI Exchange," which is the set of tools, agreements, and technical infrastructure that allows students who have matriculated into one college to easily enroll in online courses offered by other participating colleges. Canvas is the learning management system upon which the OEI is building this environment for our students.
