His arrest set off a wave of protest by fellow rappers that eventually came to the attention of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Faculty Migration from Text-Based to Media-Rich Content:
Crowdsourcing the Meaningful Application of LMS (D2L)
Quizzes
Marion Judish and Plamen Miltenoff,
Saint Cloud State University
In a music class MUSM 123, two faculty aim to expand the use of LMS
(D2L) quizzes from assessment to training tools, thus paving the
road for better learning among students. The traditional text-based
content for the quizzes is replaced with media (audio) files for fuller
content understanding by students. Based on the experience of both
faculty, which will be shared with the audience, a discussion and
brainstorming session is sought to generate ideas and involve the
audience’s experience in improving a transition from a prevalence of

replacement by media-rich teaching content. Other interweaving
topics to accompany this brainstorming discussion include but
are not limited to: faculty collaboration during technology
implementation in teaching, LMS (
