CS15-G-UML Using Web 2.0 Tools to Deepen Student Engagement & Faculty Collaboration (Tello, Lewis, Shea)
Social software tools (blogs, podcasts wikis, even YouTube), allow instructors to engage students in new and personal ways. This project pilots the use of such tools within MIS and Management courses taught by faculty at UMass Dartmouth and Lowell. Project faculty will demonstrate the use of these tools within web-enhanced course and will share accompanying support materials.

CS13-UMB Using IT to Capture and Analyze Student Learning Outcomes (Novak, Blake, Gutierrez)
The College of Management has implemented information technology to assess and analyze student learning outcomes, using (a) course-embedded assessments and (b) a program called MAP to assess students’ performance in co-curricular activities. The analytical and reporting capabilities of this technology enable the college’s Learning Outcomes Committee to provide objective means for assessing curriculum.
