Credit Options for 28 Days of OLLIE: Powering Up Personalized Learning Participants


The 28 Days of OLLIE: Powering Up Personalized Learning is only a few weeks away. In an effort to personalizing learning for 28 Day participants we are offering both formal and informal learning opportunities focused on how to further implement personalized learning with students.


Formal Learning Opportunity (Credit Option): Individuals who would like to participate in the 28 Days event for license renewal (2 credits) or graduate credit (2 credits) can do so by registering here. As an added bonus, the credits will be offered at a reduced rate:


License Renewal (2 credits):
$70
Drake Graduate (2 credits):
$150
Viterbo Graduate (2 credits):
$110
Morningside Graduate (2 credits):
$150
No Credit
$0


Individuals who select this option and register will receive information from the course instructor in early February.


Informal Learning Opportunity (No Credit=No Cost): Individuals who would like to participate in the 28 Days of OLLIE event, but
  • Are interested in personalized learning, but not do not need license renewal or graduate credit at this time
  • Aren’t certain how the course will fit into their schedule
  • Haven’t participated in online learning opportunities and want to “dip their toes” in before taking a online course
Can choose to participate informally. The benefit of participating informally, is that participants have access to all of the learning (discussions, resources, activities, etc.), but can choose how to engage each of the opportunities presented during the 28 Days.


It is up to you, the participant, to choose which learner path works best for you.  


We can’t wait to connect with you during the month of February.

Updates to Google 101 Website Tools Self Paced Course for Teachers

Because Google is moving Google sites from the Classic older view to a newer view available in your Google Drive, the Google 101: Website Tools teacher self paced course has been updated.  In this course you will find directions for the Classic version and the New version. If you have already taken the Google 101 self paced course for credit and did not have the opportunity to learn about the new version and your domain has been transitioned to this version, you can find the information by registering for the Google 101: Website Tools module (no cost and no credit) at the teacher training center.  This module will have a blue icon which is just the individual module and not the course for credit.

The Google course "Google: Sites" in the Student Personalized Learning System will also be updated soon.

If you have any questions please contact Denise Krefting or Deborah Cleveland.
