This presentation outlines how ENMU went from pilot to full-scale deployment—with the support of faculty—of the most ground-breaking technological and academic initiatives in higher education, including:
Facilitating a flipped instruction pilot Faculty are exploring the idea of pre-recording lectures so students can watch them prior to class, leaving class time dedicated to dynamic discussions and interactions Creating hybrid classes Classrooms and online students interact simultaneously via live webcasts Branching out into asynchronous distance learning Helping high school students earn college credits Allow high school students to take college classes, either on campus or online, to earn high school and college credit Recording special events and guest speakers, providing professional development online, connecting alumni and more
The two teachers admit when they started flipping their classrooms they put everything into video form. Now, they’ve taken a step back and realized some things shouldn’t be in lecture form, and therefore shouldn’t be videos either.

Infuse Learning is a free student response system that works with any Internet-connected device including iPads and Android tablets. Infuse Learning allows teachers to push questions, prompts, and quizzes out to students' devices in private virtual classrooms. In an Infuse Learning room a teacher can give students a wide variety of formats in which to response to a question or prompt. Students can reply to prompts and questions in standard multiple choice, true/false, and short answer formats. But Infuse Learning also offers an option for students to reply by creating drawings or diagrams on their iPads, Android tablets, or on their laptops.
