We would like to thank everyone who attended the annual NMLS conference last week in Phoenix, AZ. It was the largest conference to date and by the most diverse in terms of session topics. The course provider session on Tuesday, Feb 16, exceeded our attendance expectations and we had some really good discussions about online instruction and the course authentication initiative.
If you were unable to attend the conference you can access the slides from the two links below. The first link it is a presentation that was provided by Arizona State University (ASU). ASU is one of the largest providers of online education in the country and they provided an excellent presentation on instructional design and building community in courses. Their slides may be downloaded here: http://tinyurl.com/ASUOnlineBC
We also provided an annual update on the testing and education program. This presentation (which was given twice), as well slides from all the other presentations, may be found on the conference web site.
