Global Management Skills Whiteboard includes a systemic approach to management functions. It expands planning, organizing, leading, and controlling concepts to a change and innovation cloud that uses social media and technology. It also expands to environmental and global factors. Management functions go well beyond traditional planning, organizing, leading, and controlling. #Management as part of #globalsysystems requires integration of people, #communications, teamwork, evaluation, and feedback. #Leadership skills are needed for leaders, managers, and taskers. #StrategicManagement skills are needed for #Vision, #Mission, and #Goals. #ProjectManagement skills are needed to allocate people, time, and money. #Information is needed for #businessintelligence and #competitiveadvantage. #TechnologyManagement is needed to drive change and innovation. #Environmental issues #sustainability and #socialresponsibility are needed to embrace #GlobalManagement. #drjosecampus #drjosewhiteboards

Integration of TED-Ed Lessons and TED and TEDx Talks to Enhance College Classroom Instruction.  – Jose G. Lepervanche Valencia

TEDxSlide Head18

Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) obtained a TEDx license to offer educational events and additional learning resources to enhance college classroom instruction. TEDxFSCJ has organized annual conferences and salons with selected faculty, graduates, and students as  speakers.

This work presents how TEDxFSCJ Talks and other TEDx and TED Talks have been used to create innovative TED Ed Lessons as tools to expand learning beyond course content and textbooks. Innovative learning experiences include video discussions and roundtables, workshops for faculty to learn how to create TED Ed Lessons, workshops and mentoring to TEDxFSCJ speakers to create their own TED Ed Lessons, combined online discussions in different courses using TED Ed platform, interactive TEDxFSCJ Salons, simulcasts, Learning Adventures, and integration of all TED resources in blogs and Learning Management Systems.  

TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures have been used in Management courses during academic year to plan and deliver team projects using selected talks related to leadership, social responsibility and Sustainable Development Goals. Results show that new TED Ed Lessons can be created to follow up engagement. Additionally, team projects in other disciplines can be developed using this innovative methodology. TED resources offer global learning opportunities to build engagement.

Widgets and Gadgets to Enhance Online Courses in Blackboard and Canvas

Dr. Jose Lepervanche, Professor of Management, Information Systems, & E-Commerce, Florida State College at Jacksonville Emerging technologies have allowed online learning to add interactive tools to courses. New web, media and mobile applications, or widgets, and new devices, or gadgets, bring innovative resources to the hands of students and faculty. These tools have been extensively used in Blackboard and now have been extended to Canvas. Dr. Lepervanche’s Web Media Lab (www.webmedialab.org) has been also testing these widgets and gadgets applying both Technology Acceptance and Affordability Models to explore real usability beyond courses into real life. Wireless, tablets, and mobile technologies allow users to be in a virtual office all the time. You are your office.

CyberChronicles: Piloting Canvas in Online Waters

Screen-Shot-2013-02-16-at-9.12.42-PM

I have been piloting Canvas (www.instructure.com), an open-source learning management system, in my Florida State College at Jacksonville (www.fscj.edu) courses since Summer 2012. This is my log of the features I “like” and those that I would “like” to have. This post will be updated as I explore new features. Updates follow a Twitter format. Follow @DrLepervanche and #CanvasFSCJ hashtag.

I like…

1. Import feature from Blackboard. It was easy to import old content from old Blackboard courses. In some courses courses it did not work smoothly. I had to manually import each component due to deadlines. I will try again next term.

2. Ipad and smartphones applications. I can read discussions and emails in all courses. Limited features so far in interactivity. I am sure it will improve.

3. Front Page. I like the options to include links, videos and guide students to other pages.

4. Integrated Inbox. Checking all pending emails from all courses at the same time is a cool feature to reply to students in less time.

5. Due dates page. Easy to read page with all discussions, exams, and assignments deadlines and it is linked to calendar.

6. Recent Activity. It displays all recent activities from all courses in one page.

7. SpeedGrader. Easy to read papers and to add rubrics.

8. Conference. Professor and students can set specific conference times if needed.

9. Gradebook. To Do list with pending grading. It reminds professors to finish grading.

More coming soon…

I would “like”… (maybe they are available and I have not used yet)

1. Color codes for different courses. It will help to identify each course in a multiple course screen (recent activities, inbox)

2. Improve Import feature. If you manually import content from Blackboard, you have to eliminate references to BB and work on the code.

3. SpeedGrader. Waiting for feature to add comments to papers.

4. Groups. Some students says it is confused on their side. Still checking.

More coming soon…

Here is a detailed comparison between Blackboard and Canvas.
