University of Wisconsin-Stout - The First Wisconsin University to be Certified for Excellence by the United States Distance Learning Association
The University of Wisconsin-Stout has received Quality Standards (QS) certification for excellence from the United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA). University of Wisconsin-Stout is the only university in the UW System to receive this certification. Institutions that receive USDLA/QS certification have been evaluated using 124 standards that focus on the areas of administration, leadership and management, student affairs, and teaching and learning. Certification is awarded for a five-year period, subject to performance and annual renewal.
"UW-Stout has been a leader in providing online and distance education for decades," said Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen. "This announcement tells the world that the programs we provide across the country and the world meet the highest standards for academic rigor and quality." Doug Stevens, director of Stout Online, added, "Going through the process of the USDLA Quality Standards Certification not only validates the quality services that UW-Stout provides, but also identifies areas that we can improve in providing online programs to our students."

OneNote now on Mac, free everywhere, and service powered | Office Blogs | digital marketing | Scoop.it

When we started OneNote we set out to revolutionize the way people capture, annotate, and recall all the ideas, thoughts, snippets and plans in their life. As many of you have attested, OneNote is the ultimate extension for your brain, but it’s not complete if it’s not instantly available everywhere. We’ve already made a lot of progress in that direction with our mobile, tablet and online web experiences. But there was still a gap. People frequently asked us for OneNote on Mac, and for more ways to capture content.

Grammarly to check and improve your grammar

Grammarly to check and improve your grammar | digital marketing | Scoop.it

Even the most confident of native speakers can sometimes have doubts about their spelling and grammar. As for learners of English, getting their writing to a really high degree of proficiency can be a real challenge. It’s great to have a friend to turn to in moments of doubt or better still someone who will proof read your work and give you a second opinion, but if you don’t have that luxury then the Grammarly plagiarism checker is probably the next best thing.

Presentations Aren't Always the Right Way to Share a Story

Sometimes you just need to start a conversation.

Via Karen Dietz

Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 18, 2014 2:23 PM

I've noticed that articles on different business story topics come in waves, and this recent wave seems to be focused on presentations. So here is another article, this one from HBR, that questions the need for presentations. Hallelujah!


Too often we think that presentations and storytelling are synonymous. While it is true that the best way to give a presentation is to include stories, giving a presentation is not the default choice for sharing stories.


In fact, one of the highest leverage points folks have in business is when stories are shared in conversation. I love this article because it gets us thinking about the question: "Do I really need to give a presentation about this? Or would a conversation -- or conversations with several people -- be better?"


So think about any upcoming presentations you've got scheduled. How would you answer the question above?


This review was written by Karen Dietz for her curated content on business storytelling at www.scoop.it/t/just-story-it 

Sophie Boissier's curator insight, March 19, 2014 6:58 AM

What caught my eye : “Our brain is mainly an image processor (much of our sensory cortex is devoted to vision), not a word processor. In fact, the part of the brain used to process words is quite small in comparison to the part that processes visual images.”

 

Regarding the use of slides, I personnaly like to use paperboards : it's old fashined, but allows to really create the conversation by "improvising" - the only imperative being : TRAIN before you present!

corneja's curator insight, March 26, 2014 11:38 AM

"The best conversations will happen when you’ve briefed everyone ahead of time on the information you’re going to discuss. ....To get everyone up to speed, create a visual document in presentation software — what I call a slidedoc – and circulate it before the meeting." copied from the post.

 

The slidedoc idea is a good idea. Thanks!

Writefull | A new way of writing with confidence | digital marketing | Scoop.it

We all use Google to check if our writing is correct. We enter different phrases until we find the one that gives us most results – and this is the one we use in our own text. A smart approach, but not without its annoyances: revisiting the Google webpage breaks the flow of our writing, and its results often contain grammatical errors.
