Retaining Students in Online Education – September 2012

26th to 28th September 2012
Phoenix, United States of America
Student
Join us in Phoenix to discuss practical strategies for online student retention. You will be engaged in small and large group discussions, brainstorming, and planning as you develop an action plan specific to the needs of your institution.
Learn why online students sometimes fail and what you can do to prepare them for success.
The promise and potential to transform lives through online learning are enormous. All too often, though, the promises of certificates and degrees earned online are never met. Students fail to reach their potential, struggling to complete their coursework at a distance or dropping out altogether. In order to improve online student retention, especially during these difficult economic times, institutions need methods to track students, document progress, and put specific practices in place to ensure success.

Delivering Library Services Through Mobile Technologies

From computers to the Internet, libraries have successfully met the challenge of adapting their services to changing technologies. Today’s challenge is delivering services to smartphones, eBook readers, and tablets to users on the go who now view more content on mobile devices than desktop and laptop computers. CDs and DVDs are becoming passé, eBook sales outpace paper books, and users increasingly download music, movies, and books from iTunes and Kindle, storing their purchases in the Cloud.
This online conference will address the technical issues related to pushing library content and services to mobile users. Topics to be addressed include selecting and creating eBooks, building mobile-friendly websites, selecting and developing apps for library users, and circulating library materials through mobile devices. Our list of speakers includes librarians, academics, and business trendsetters. Amigos members and nonmembers, join our online conversation and be a part of this informative, interactive June 8 event.
