Rally—Open Academic Discussions in Shared Courses

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

During this session, participants will learn what Rally is and how it is being used to create a new common student experience in shared campus courses. This new student experience relies on technology to minimize time and location boundaries while fostering an on-campus experience that is broader and richer than what could be offered by a single campus. Results of a pilot featuring Rally in a hybrid Polycom business course will be discussed along with changes, based on student input, that will be implemented for a second pilot course. Participants will have the opportunity to experience Rally through hands-on activities and discussions.
