"We’re taking the course development process out of inboxes and putting it into a shared set of applications that allows for more collaboration, a way to measure the use of course materials, and a way to share content while respecting the creators’ sharing preferences." Learn more about the Course Development Suite on our blog. http://ow.ly/LVKR306sYK5
Like we mentioned in the previous blog, universities are and will continue to be places where instructional content is created. Lately, we’ve seen a change in how instructional content and courses are created as pressure rises for teaching practices to adapt to the needs of next-generation learners. Faculty are still the primary creators of lecture materials, course materials and textbooks, but increasingly instructional designers, media develope...

Unizin's end-users are an important part of our design process. Read about how we get to the right solution in our newest blog: http://ow.ly/pyiJ301nzWv
Reading Between the Lines. Institutions are changing the way they think about content creation and how content is used within a course. To that end, course design is becoming a collaborative effort on the part of faculty, instructional designers, librarians, and learning analytics experts.

Landing a Big Flip: Read about how one University of Iowa professor flipped his courses easier with Canvas and Unizin, on our website. http://ow.ly/CHZW306RMcB
When it was first announced that the University of Iowa was planning to pilot Canvas as part of Unizin, Jon Garfinkel, finance professor at the Tippie College of Business, realized this could be just the opportunity he needed to try flipping his new undergrad course. He had started flipping his MBA courses a while ago, when he observed the rise of free and low-cost college-level learning opportunities, like edX and Coursera. He... Read More

Happy Friday everyone! We're back with your #MemberNews weekly update, featuring three of this week's top stories from our Member universities.

1. Five students from the University of Iowa Tippie College of Business are headed to Texas to compete in a Deloitte national tax case competition. Congrats to this talented team! http://bit.ly/2gw26aE

2. Ohio State researchers are continuing their study of the West Antarctic ice shelf after discovering that a major glacier in the shelf is breaking apart from the inside out. http://bit.ly/2gR1gX6

3. The School of Global and International Studies at Indiana University has officially partnered with the National Endowment for Democracy. http://bit.ly/2h3gAzV

Our universities are full of amazing programs that are pushing the boundaries of science and technology. Here a just a few of the amazing findings and new technology researchers are experimenting with at our Member universities.

1. A group of undergraduates at CSU have created a functioning exoskeleton to assist semi-paralyzed dogs. Unlike a prosthesis, the canine exoskeleton helps dogs with weak or non-functioning limbs regain movement. Recent advances in technology made it possible for the exoskeleton to process information fast enough to imitate the true movements of an animal. http://ow.ly/5HXx301ndGE

2. More than one million plant and animal fossils at the University of Iowa will soon be available to view online. Researchers and volunteers are working on digitizing the collection. Some of the specimens include marine life fossils dating back 488 million years and remains of ice age mammals, like the woolly mammoth and giant ground sloth. http://ow.ly/3fkR301nehh

3. Electrical and materials engineers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have identified a new substance that could improve the technology used to power microwaves and X-ray machines. A newly discovered type of perovskite could boost the output power of the electron beams used in many devices. Researchers will study the properties of the new substance and search for other applications with a $1.3 million grand from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. http://ow.ly/5nj9301neQe
