EIU Online Learning Community

(EIU OLC)

Online Learning CommunityWould you like to see how others are using D2L Brightspace and other instructional technologies to create innovative online learning experiences?  Would you like to be one of the first to learn about new instructional technologies and updates to existing technologies?  What about sharing campus best practices to improve online teaching and learning? The FDIC invites all EIU faculty and staff interested in online teaching and learning to join the EIU Online Learning Community (OLC). The purpose of the EIU OLC is to:

  • Share campus best practices to improve online teaching and learning.
  • See how others are using D2L Brightspace and other instructional technologies to create innovative learning experiences.
  • Inform the community about existing and new web-based instructional technologies including what's new in D2L Brightspace.
  • Leverage expertise, experience, and training resources for D2L Brightspace and other instructional technologies across campus.

Information and ideas will be shared with the community throughout the year in a group chat in Teams.  The OLC will also meet virtually through Teams on the third Wednesday of the month from 3:00-4:00 PM.  The OLC meetings for Fall 2022 will be September 21, October 19, and November 16.   An agenda will be provided with the topics that will be discussed at each meeting and of course there will be time for sharing and Q&A. Even if you are unable to attend the OLC meetings, we encourage you to join the community so you will have access to the information shared in Teams.  The meetings will be recorded for community members unable to attend.  

Join the OLC
