About The Webinar

With institutions scrambling the past months to transition to remote instruction, the LMS has become the lifeline for millions of students and instructors as they shift for the convenience, wellbeing, and safety of their learners. In this quick transition, many institutions have come to recognize that in order to organize and streamline digital learning, you need a highly flexible, functional, and interoperable learning platform that will serve as a virtual hub to store, track, and deliver your learning programs.

Fortunately, through the power of open-source technology, eLearning administrators can leverage a variety of highly accessible solutions to support institutional learning. Instructors can incorporate different strategies in order to enhance the digital learning experience for users in the short-term, but ultimately encouraging long-term information retention and improved learning outcomes.

Join eThink on Thursday, April 23rd at 11am Eastern to discover the most important strategies an institution can leverage in order to provide effective distance learning during this time and into the future.

During the session, you will learn:

  • Strategies for shifting from strictly instructor-led courses to an online experience. 
  • Support ideas for helping faculty and students adjust to the immediacy of moving online.   
  • How to deliver an engaging online learning experience that incorporates the best aspects of in-class courses. 
  • eLearning trends and strategies that can be accommodated in your institution’s learning platform (or LMS) to take things to the next level such as microlearning, competency-based education, blending synchronous and asynchronous activities, gamification, and more. 
  • How Moodle's community-driven platform, combined with eThink's tailored customer support and powerful integrations, provide a refreshingly simple and flexible solution to meet specific institutional needs.
