Sloan-C Effective Practice Award Recipient for VoiceThread in Online Learning!

I'm excited and honored to share that my use of VoiceThread in Online Learning to enhance community, increase social presence and improve visual learning is the recipient of a 2010 Sloan-C Effective Practices Award!

The Sloan Consortium is an institutional and professional leadership organization dedicated to integrating online education into the mainstream of higher education, helping institutions and individual educators improve the quality, scale, and breadth of education. 

The Sloan-C Effective Practices are submitted year-round by online educators and institutional teams and are viewable by the public.

Thank you, Sloan-C, for recognizing my contributions to the development of quality online teaching and learning.  I look forward to receiving the award at the ET4Online Conference in San Jose, when VoiceThread will also receive the MERLOT Classics Award.  Steve Muth, co-founder of VoiceThread, has asked me to accept the VoiceThread award on his behalf and we will be co-presenting to the conference attendees on Friday, July 23rd in a featured presentation.  Looking forward to all of it! 

The following VoiceThread showcases the overall practice.  Feel free to comment on any slide.  Please be aware that comment moderation is turned "on" so your comment will not appear immediately.

5 comment methods, very cool Michelle! As a deaf writer for an online learning co., I'm wondering if you'd be willing to be interviewed (via email, or more appropriately, VoiceThread) for our blog?

We'd like to cover disabilities and online education, and you'd be perfect!
