Transcript

  • 1. Ohio Learning Network Conference 23 October 2000 Dr. Wm. Beasley Cleveland State University
  • 2. Who are we?
    • We are housed in the College of Education at Cleveland State University
    • We are a Master’s Degree program in Curriculum & Instruction, with a specialization in Educational Technology
    • Our program of study comprises 32 semester hours
  • 3. We also provide a teaching credential
    • Completion of the program also earns an Ohio K-12 Computer/Technology teaching endorsement
    • Some students who already hold a graduate degree earn this endorsement separately
    • To do so requires the completion of 19 semester hours
  • 4. General descriptors...
    • This program is now 15 years old
    • During Summer (our busiest semester) we filled slightly more than 150 seats in education technology courses
    • Our audience is primarily working K-12 teachers
    • We utilize 3 1/2 full time faculty plus occasional adjunct faculty
  • 5. What are our intentions for expansion)?
    • To make this degree and teaching endorsement available to students at a distance -- even those not close to our campus(es)
    • To offer a certificate complying with advanced ISTE standards in this area (basic is what we and Ohio have now)
  • 6. What’s unusual about this?
    • The combination of IVDL graduate coursework incorporating large amounts of hands-on computer activity during the class sessions within the IVDL environment
    • Our practice of insisting that hands-on activities take place in both Macintosh and Windows operating systems
  • 7. What problems did we encounter as we approached this?
    • The places with distance education facilities (IVDL)seldom have computer facilities in the same space
    • Locations with computer facilities seldom have access to both Macintosh and Windows operating systems
    • Facilities with computers at all tend to, have strong feelings about configuration
    • A remote instructor has great difficulty trroubleshooting without a live screen view
  • 8. How did we address these problems?
  • 9. 1. Provide laptops for remote students
    • We own them -- thus control both the supply and the configuration
    • We chose Apple iBooks running Virtual PC, so we have both operating systems available at once
  • 10. 2. Use wireless networking with the laptops
    • Thus, we need only one (or two, with printer) data jacks at the remote site
    • The “rats nest syndrome” of omnipresent trailing cables is largely eliminated
  • 11. 3. Use Apple’s Network Assistant software to allow the instructor to monitor (and control, if necessary) student stations --even over TCP/IP
  • 12. What problems did we encounter during implementation?
  • 13. Printing.
    • We forgot to include provisions for printers with network cards
    • This has been easily solved by placing an HP LaserJet 2100 with network card in the IVDL rooms
  • 14. Storage and recharging.
    • A good “mothership” cart was surprisingly difficult to locate
    • We finally succeeded with Anthro Corporation in Tualatin, OR
  • 15. Firewall problems at our first remote site.
    • (Still being negotiated)
  • 16. What comes next?
    • New IVDL room with full desktop computer facilities
    • 500 Mhz Macintosh G4s with Virtual PC
    • This will free up our 18 iBooks for remote IVDL sites
    • This room is projected to be in use by January, 2001
  • 17. What comes after that?
    • We plan to steadily migrate our remaining coursework to the IVDL environment
    • Ultimately, we intend to offer the degree program and teaching endorsement on OLN
  • 18. Where can you contact us for more information?
