One facilitator (Rebecca Petersen)

Course Outcomes

Participants interested, but overwhelemed by the formality of online format and volume of content. Course post-poned at the beginning of the 3rd week for low-participation., Factor 1: Online Professional Development new to UMF community, Factor 2: Participants more interested in general overview and not a full, 4 week course, Factor 3: LMS created a more formal environment than the Edmodo site.

New series will include synchronous elements in Adobe Connect or Google+ hangout.
