*Several instructors in the e-Learning Committee are planning to offer extra credit. When students arrive, they are given a card to have stamped as they visit various booths. The card will have a place on it for their email address and the name of the course (if any) for which they are able to earn extra credit. In order to be entered into the raffle, earn extra credit, and receive a follow-up email with links to the technology they saw, they will need to have their cards stamped at at a minimum of 3 booths. I will email faculty after the event with a list of students who attended from their class.

Let’s work together to make sure our students are on the cutting edge of technology!
