DePaul Online Teaching Series (DOTS) is a faculty development program that trains and assists faculty to become successful facilitators of online learning. The program builds online readiness among faculty through an immersive, hands-on experience. Faculty are introduced to online-learning best practices, hands-on innovative use of technology, quality standards for course development across all delivery formats, and are guided through the development of exemplary course sites for online and blended instruction. In addition, the program provides opportunities for faculty to interact with peers with a shared commitment to online learning and to develop a sustainable network of online-ready instructors.
Registration is now open for the Spring DOTS session.
The conference itself takes place August 3-5, 2011 in Madison, Wisconsin

Sanjay Deshmukh shared a very useful piece of information with me today. Both of use use the extremely useful Papershow smartpen. Sanjay was able to find a some great deals on supplies through the company WhiteboardSelling. It looks like this will be the cheapest option to resupply on ink refills and paper.
Alaa Sadik (Sultan Qaboos University) got in contact with me today and very kindly shared information about RealShow. RealShow is a software tool that he developed to help teachers record their PowerPoint-based presentations.
