The W&M eLearning Community held its first meeting today!

Guest speaker, Professor Michael Kelley, Applied Science, who has taught in a blended format for more than 10 years, shared his experiences.  Gene Roche, Director of Academic Information Services followed with his thoughts on the importance of matching the activity types and available technologies to the learning needs of the student; reminding us that eLearning is not just about the technology but, more importantly, about student learning.  This is key to the success of eLearning initiative at the College of William and Mary.
