You have the ability to provide a robust learning experience online. The materials are top-notch, and so is the faculty. What is your next frontier? For Thomas Edison State College, a public institution in the state of New Jersey, the answer is: Support. A profile in Blackboard’s E-Learn Magazine describes the 5 elements Thomas Edison State strives to meet at the highest of standards, virtually.

For Thomas Edison State’s Center for Learning and Technology, consistency was ingredient number one. Before starting any teaching initiative, the team knew it was important to provide a seamless experience. It would take advantage of the progress along the learning curve of students and faculty alike. The Moodlerooms LMS, Blackboard’s take on Moodle, was already in place for in-campus teaching.

Consolidation of the team was the second element. A skilled bunch made up of subject matter experts, instructional designers, a technologist, and an “assessment developer,” made sure the experience delivered consistently across dimensions.

Curriculum mapping was the next priority. This entailed close alignment with Thomas Edison State’s curricula and clarity about the educational outcomes and objectives. This guaranteed accountability of the content, as well as the assessments.

Engagement then became the focus. Technology has a clear opportunity to encourage participation and critical thinking through interactivity. Videos, special projects, and simulations were introduced across the board.

The cherry on top were Learning Analytics. Moodlerooms’ tools for tracking, collecting, and analyzing data allowed the institution to create a “virtuous circle” of feedback, which by itself may open the gate to yet another new frontier.
