Speakers Tom Kemp, Executive Director, Online Learning and Academic Technology at Cuyahoga Community College, and Deborah Spiro, Assistant Vice President, Distance Education at Nassau Community College, shared their experiences with online attendance tracking during a session surrounding Online Activity Mode, the newest addition to Qwickly Attendance Pro. Angela Wright-Nash, Online Education & Outreach Coordinator at Pinellas Technical College, gave a presentation titled, “High-Quality Online Education: Before, During & After the Crisis,” which explored the elements of what establishes an online course offering as “high-quality,” how to respond to a crisis situation and migrate courses to an online instructional format, and how to keep your online instructional presence once the threat passes.
The event closed with a presentation on Qwickly’s products for the K12 sector, featuring speaker Michael Zauderer, Director of Educational Operations at The Frisch School, where K12 professionals had the chance to discuss how Qwickly can improve products to best serve K12 administrators, teachers, parents and students.
