    • Portfolios in OAE
      • VTech, Kyoto U, HEC Montreal are planning a project to integrate the new HEC Montreal portfolio functionality into either OAE or the CLE.
      • This functionality replicates and improves upon the current OSP workflow - more effective interfaces and authoring tools, smoother process for student and faculty use, minimal coding involved

      • http://www.thecn.com, anyone can create an account and join courses and connexes (SIGs)
      • LTI integration was fairly easy to implement
      • IU is making tool available to all courses, when turn it on a course site is created in the Course Networking application and as users log on, they are added to the course. Experience is rather like Facebook. There are some course management tools in the system, but nothing major to start (quizzes, email, live broadcasting, posting)
      • Unit at IU will conduct a formal evaluation of everything piloted; faculty advisory committees will recommend where to go with these project.
      • Course Networking not costing anything, if providing value will probably continue
