MHEC is excited to introduce a new partner in MHEC's contract portfolio - Ease Learning (https://mhec.org/ease-learning). Ease Learning can provide instructional design and training services through a competitively sourced contract that can be used by all higher education institutions, both public and private not-for-profit.
Instruction design services provide support for your faculty to convert existing face-to-face courses using key pedagogical principals and methods to create content into formats appropriate for teaching courses online. The instructional design training services help teach overall instructional design techniques including design foundations and practices, how to select, design, and evaluate digital media to support learning, and applying data mining techniques to design and evaluate on-line learning experiences. The first offering is focused on faculty and existing coursework, while the second could be for faculty or an institution looking to develop/expand in-house instructional design resources.
This webinar will provide an overview of the wide range of learning design and out-sourced help desk services offered by Ease Learning to higher education institutions. Deb Kidwell, consultant to MHEC, will briefly discuss MHEC's cost savings initiatives and how institutions can use the new contract. Laurie Pulido, CEO of Ease Learning, will provide a brief demo of Skillways, the company’s recently launched software that works in conjunction with the existing LMS and provides deep insights into learner success. Ease’s learning data team uses information from Skillways to foster continuous improvement throughout the life of the program. During the session, Laurie will share examples of how Ease Learning has partnered with higher ed institutions to scale and deliver programs that optimize outcomes and completion rates and contribute directly to the institution's long-term sustainability in the form of higher retention rates and increased enrollments.
