The Florida Online Innovation Summit Returns to UCF Campus!

We look forward to being in person again for the 2024 Summit! We want to thank the participants and presenters of the 2023 event.

The date of the 2024 Summit has not yet been announced, so stay tuned.

The Florida Online Innovation Summit is an opportunity to share and discuss projects that are being implemented across the state to advance the state-of-the-art in online learning. These are projects that seek to push the boundaries of current technology and practice in order to disrupt existing models and positively impact the constraints of the “iron triangle” of quality, cost, and access for students. Examples of potential innovative and experimental project categories include:

  • Adaptive Learning
  • Microcredentials / Digital Badges
  • Next Generation ePortfolios
  • Predictive Analytics and Dashboards
  • eText and Digital Materials Strategies
  • Immersive Video Environments
  • AI Chatbots
  • AI-Enabled Content Creation and Distribution
  • Creative Use of Open Source Materials
  • Learning Analytics
  • Content Repositories for Sharing Digital Resources
  • 3rd Party Tool Integrations
  • VR, AR, XR
  • Synchronous Tools and Pedagogy
  • Emergency Remote Strategy Innovations
  • Makerspace Resources

The Innovation Summit and the TOPkit Workshop occur in sequential weeks so participants can benefit from attending both events. The Teaching Online Preparation Toolkit (TOPkit) is a comprehensive resource for those who are responsible for faculty development, including those who develop relationships with faculty to ensure quality online or hybrid courses. Although TOPkit is Florida funded, it has an international reach. The site is organized by a three-step process for planning, developing, and evaluating your program, along with supporting resources. We invite you to explore TOPkit resources and participate in upcoming events.
