UNC Gives Professors a Way to Rate Classroom Technologies Across Campuses
February 19, 2016
Yelp-like review site for teaching tools, where it is asking professors to review and comment on how useful various digital services were in their classrooms
The online platform, known as the UNC Learning Technology Commons.
The hope, said Mr. Rascoff, is to reduce the unnecessary bureaucracy and effort that each campus goes through to purchase new technologies — and to streamline the process of obtaining the right tools by asking the faculty to weigh in.
The biggest advantage of the learning-technology commons, Ms. Martin said, is that she will be able to connect with professors in similar disciplines on other campuses and more easily find tools to use in her classroom.
What are your thoughts? Would you like such service on your campus?
