Session Description: From personal enrichment to professional credentialing, distance education courses are growing in popularity. The convenience or necessity of learning in one’s underwear is significantly affecting the mix of how educators work. Yet for students, learning is enriched by engaging with others in activities that are directly linked to the world outside the living room. Striving to combine these two realities, Geoff Archer and Jo Axe investigated ways to connect online undergraduate students with each other and the external environment. In this session you will explore innovative ways to engage distance learning students through experiential activities that foster real social, environmental and commercial endeavors. As an integral part of an active audience you will participate in a discussion of four successful works in progress; 1) The Video Elevator Pitch, 2) The Online Venture Challenge, 3) The Microfinance Business Ideas Competition (www.mfbic.org) and 4) the Parallel Universe of SIFE Online.“
