Doreen's Sessions Information Sharing:

**Digital Immigrants: Do They Want to Emigrate?** - Deb's session was GREAT!

Students at community colleges range in age from 17-80. Engaging the millennial native and the older immigrant student in the same classroom can be a particular challenge, especially since checking email might be the extent of the immigrant’s technology prowess. Come learn about the strategies one nursing program has used to bridge the gap between millennial natives and older immigrant students and how students have responded.

Check out over 30 Web 2.0 applications that we learned hands-on at Username: Doreen.Fisher Password: cit2008 Also he shared about a great mentor program through the DL Office for online faculty that select students for their courses to assist and get paid work study monies through the DL Office.
Participants gain valuable hands-on experience with several new, free, and web-based communications applications that can be used inside any virtual learning environment (VLE). These services are particularly useful in education because of their special emphasis on collaboration and social networking. Used during the course is Desire2Learn, but the principles apply equally well to other VLEs (i.e. Blackboard, Angel, Moodle). Explored during this course are the use of video, music playlists, photos, wikis, instant messaging, social bookmarking, Twitter, web office, RSS, and more. Participants engage in online collaborative activities during the course that simulate projects they could assign to their students.

**Helping Online Learners Through a Prerequisite Orientation Video and Quiz** - Check out their video and quiz at which is sent to students after they register for an online course and "mandated" to complete plus then the students are given access to an online orientatation course to practice in before starting the semester. Central Oregan CC has an online orientation that students must take and complete the quiz before being able to even register for an online course.
Providing online learners with the resources needed to be successful is critical. Discussed is requiring student orientation as a prerequisite to online instruction. Kirkwood Community College created a video clip that explains online courses and important procedures and directs students to an online orientation course. Not only has the video served to increase student success, but faculty, support service and marketing personnel, and administrators have found the video to be helpful in other areas as well.

Service learning is a required component of the general education environmental technology course at Salt Lake City College, which most students take on the internet.
