Florida Online Innovation Summit

Innovation_Summit_2020 banner

This 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
  • MOOCs for credit
  • eText and digital materials strategies
  • Competency-Based Learning
  • Immersive Video Environments
  • Creative use of open source materials
  • Learning analytics
  • Content repositories for sharing digital resources
