September KCTCS Distance Learning Peer Team Meeting

The KCTCS Distance Learning Peer Team met September 31 to discuss a number of issues.  Topics included:

  • Sandy Cook announced a new Service Center for Learn on Demand is in the works.  It will  includes assistance with advising, registration, IT troubleshooting, and more.
  • Pearson, who makes the MyLab suite of programs, offered a number of updates.
  • Future Blackboard updates were discussed.  KCTCS currently uses SP3.  SP7 is available.  We move to SP 7 at the start of the summer semester.  
  • The Proctored Exam database of passwords and exam information will be moving to The Point.  This will solve reliability problems with the old database.
  • Learn on Demand Developmental modules for Math are now available.  Writing goes online soon with Reading to follow later this semester.
