Epsilen, a global learning management system, has implemented interactive Web 2.0 technologies directly into the LMS creating not only an effective content distribution mechanism, but also an interactive environment for learning. It’s open architecture and professional social networking environment encourages collaboration for both students within an individual course along with other professionals around the world. Faculty members at Fort Hays State University have piloted the new learning management system for the past two years. This Best Practices Session will demonstrate the Epsilen environment and the techniques and strategies that have been piloted to increase collaborative learning and content creation from within the Epsilen system. During and after the presentation, participants will be invited to access an Epsilen course and experience firsthand the techniques and strategies demonstrated during the session.
