Learning Management Systems Opportunities for IARSS Members, December 10th, 2018, 2:00 to 3:00 pm

Interest in providing on-line professional learning opportunities is growing among ROEs and ISCs. Determining which Learning Management System (LMS) to use is an important early decision. IARSS is offering an overview of three LMSs familiar to members–Teach Illinois, Canvas (Kane ROE) and Illinois Virtual School. Matt Weld, Kip Pygman, and Katie Algrim will share the opportunities offered by each of the three systems. Follow-up full day sessions may be scheduled if there is enough interest.  REGISTER


IARSS is hosting a series of “instralogues” (instruction + dialogue) called “Connecting Beyond the Conference”. The 30 minute on-line sessions, held at 3:30 pm on the third Tuesday of every month, feature ROE/ISC personnel sharing their knowledge about pertinent topics. Each session will provide time for sharing among participants.

There is no fee for involvement and no “clock hours” will be provided. All sessions will be recorded and will be available on this website.
