We hear a lot about personalized learning - tailoring lessons to the individual needs of students. Can personalized learning help us solve the decades-old challenge of college readiness? Dr. Lopez talks about the possible reasons so many of our high school graduates are not ready for college math and English, and introduces EdReady, a new web-based application from the non-profit NROC Project, that is now being piloted by select institutions nationwide.
Come spend 45 minutes with NROC's Member Services team and leave with a year's worth of ideas for using NROC's new math resources and over 4,000 digital learning objects across disciplines from HippoCampus to engage and empower your students.
This webinar will address Frequently Asked Questions about NROC math courses and include a panel of teachers currently using NROC courses with their students. Our panel will offer suggestions from their experiences and answer participant questions about how they used NROC courses in their classes. Brief overviews of NROC math courses including both the standard and pre-assessment versions of NROC Developmental Math will be included for context.

Join the discussion on the potential of massive (and little) open online courses (MOOCs and LOOCs) to impact college placement performance in mathematics. We'll take a look at the motivations, execution and results of pilot programs at two colleges in the summer of 2013, and we'll consider the instructional ramifications for students, instructors and institutions.
