New Medical School Hybrid Radiology Course Using Online Learning Management System: Radiology on the Interview Trail

Speaker(s): 
Judith Amorosa
Presentation Description: 

We converted a 4 week conventional elective course: Radiology Clerkship into a hybrid course utilizing an online learning management system (LMS): the Pearson Learning Studio eCollege. Overall, students had positive feedback for the course, especially regarding its flexibility and ability for self-directed learning. Nonetheless, with the hybrid course in its infancy, there was also feedback for ways to improve organization, course structure, and lecture content to better suit online learning.

Regarding LMS Migration as a Golden Opportunity: Rutgers Arts Online’s Experience

Speaker(s): 
Ruqqayya Maudoodi, Richard Metzger
Presentation Description: 

Migrating from one LMS to another can be a division or department’s worst nightmare, or it can be a golden opportunity to dramatically improve the standards of your course offerings. RAO took the latter tack and used the migration as the means to bring the courses into conformity through universal design, address ADA compliance issues, eliminate ‘legacy’ technical issues, and replace ancillary software by using the features of the new LMS. The undertaking also gave us the opportunity to build even stronger community/team spirit with our instructors.
