Descriptive blurbs taken from organization’s ‘About Us’ page.

Educause Learning Initiative: “ELI is a community of higher education institutions and organizations committed
to the advancement of learning through the innovative application of technology.”

EduSurge: “We share information vital to all in the ecosystem: trends, available jobs, opportunities and events. We are building a database of rich information about emerging products and how they’re being used. We also run a series of conferences where educators and entrepreneurs meet on common ground and exchange feedback on how to build and refine tools to improve educational outcomes.”

The Chronicle of Higher Education – Technology: “The Chronicle of Higher Education is the No. 1 source of news, information, and jobs for college and university faculty members and administrators.”

New Media Consortium: “The NMC (historically the New Media Consortium) is an international community of experts in educational technology — from the practitioners who work with new technologies on campuses every day; to the visionaries who are shaping the future of learning at think tanks, labs, and research centers; to its staff and board of directors; to the advisory boards and others helping the NMC conduct cutting edge research.”

Teaching Online Preparation Toolkit: “The Teaching Online Preparation Toolkit (TOPkit) website is a comprehensive resource that provides the postsecondary community with the essential elements required to ensure a very high quality online faculty development program, including a sample course that may be imported into any learning management system and then customized. The links below walk you through a three-step process for planning, developing, and evaluating your program along with supporting resources. While this initiative is Florida funded and Florida focused, it is not Florida exclusive and we invite you, our colleagues around the world, to explore the TOPkit website and actively participate in its accompanying community of practice.”
