Leadership Matters Online was developed in 2011-12 as a signature course
for the Extension Center for Youth Development funded through the Minnesota
Department of Education. The course is a hybrid online course with three
modules, including three live webinars, pre-recorded sessions, breakout chat
rooms, interactive phone calls, as well as self-paced learning. We piloted some
innovative interactive learning using technology tools, including Voicethread,
Mindmeister and GroupZap. The course was piloted in March 2012 with 16
participants. Evaluation data from 13 participants (two peer reviewers and 11
course participants) was collected by the Youth Work Institute and guided revisions
to the course content to be offered again late October 2012. The Moodle
course site uses custom designed template formats that provide visual appeal
and easier navigation. UMConnect break out rooms during the webinar allow
for more extensive conversation between participants. Global Premier phone
connections assure the integrity of the phone lines which is often a detraction
in online webinar courses. The poster will feature screen shots of the Moodle
templates as well as the Mindmeister, Voicethread and Groupzap tools.
