    • 52.  
    • 53. Measurement & Assessment
      • Reaction : Did they like it?
      • Usability : Did they use it? How? Easy?
      • Behavior : Is there a changed behavior? Difference in learning provision? Student reaction?
      • Results : Is there an overall learning benefit?
    • 54. Seton Hill: Technology Advantage?
      • Reaction : Yes
      • Usability : Sure. But was it for everyone?
      • Behavior : Tech tool vs. learning tool. Is there a difference?
      • Results : Overall reaction & lessons learned.
    • 55.  
    • 56. Evolution of Tech & Learners
      • Encourage open collaboration
      • Ask more from each student
      • Use technology to customize resources
      • Maintain high quality learning curriculum
      • Connect students to authentic experiences
      • Continue to search, evolve & learn
    • 57. Concerns & Challenges
      • Digital Rights Management ( DRM) - prevents copying of text or printing of text or, in some cases, reading the text on a different device, e.g. Adobe Digital Edition PDFs seem to lock your content to the device it was registered to.
      • Study Skills - Not being able to copy text or annotate text or print text is also a pain.
      • Publisher perspective - Lack of ability to print is particularly problematic for complex.
      • Accessibility needs - most have computers, but if they have a problem with their technology, many do not have the resources to get back online quickly
      • Compatibility - between devices (i.e. epub may not work on some devises)
      • Readability - Most of my students find reading on a screen uncomfortable.  Therefore many seem unwilling to do the reading.
      • Staff Support - Inadequate training or experience on the part of staff and faculty leads to wasted opportunities to utilize these resources.
    • 58. Best of Luck!
      • Establish a team
      • Research & brainstorm
      • Ask around on campus
