Abstract

This session examines best practices for technology use in collaborations between the University of Illinois at Springfield and Chicago State University enabling online shared class sessions across institutional boundaries. We explore the collaborations between these ethnically and culturally diverse institutions. The University of Illinois at Springfield received two grants in the fall of 2004 to address the challenge of encouraging diversity in online and on campus classes. One grant, from the Illinois Board of Higher Education supported the development of online collaborations between classes at UIS with a student population that is approximately 9% ethnic minority and Chicago State University with a student population that is more than 90%. Highlighted are synchronous and asynchronous exchanges using Elluminate two-way, web-based audio conferencing system and Blackboard discussion board technologies.
