A New Approach to Teaching Nursing Informatics



my name is Jen's Jose and I want to welcome you to today's webinar focused on a new online course for nursing informatics developed by our partner junction education today I'm joined by Derek Wessler he's the co-founder and VP of Sales and Marketing for junction education thanks Jen appreciate it and thank you everybody on the line I certainly appreciate that your time this afternoon or this this morning so what we're going to go through today a couple of steps I'll talk a little bit about junction company what we've done a little bit about the course than receive chromatic sports that we've put together will then spend most of our time going through the demo itself and showing you what students see what instructors see the features and functionality of the course and then we'll leave some questions at the end I heard you as questions come up you can put them in the chat we'll be monitoring the chat function throughout so if something comes up you don't need to hold the question early and feel free to drop it into the chat for the organizers as you see fit a little bit about junction Junction is an adaptive courseware platform we started to make learning simpler and easier and that was basically where it came from I am one of the co-founders my other co-founder I we both spent to the tune was about a dozen years at mcgraw-hill working on some of the products which you may be familiar with connect LearnSmart Alex a number of the digital products that you're seeing that are fairly prevalent in higher education and we were constantly challenged with this notion that digital learning needs to be making education cheaper and better and we felt that a lot of the products that we were seeing in the market just weren't doing that and we started junction with that goal in mind makes learning cheaper and better using digital tools mostly to simplify the experience we've been in market for about five years we have a number of open educational resource courses out in the market and we put hundreds of thousands of students through those courses we are Gates Foundation approved we are an OLC Award winner and we are now really pleased to be partnering with Jones of our learning taking some of their courses including nursing informatics and bringing them online through the junction platform you a little bit about the nursing informatics course itself and we're going to click through all of this so as questions not the old or as ideas come up your CDs as we click through the demo the nursing informatics course is complete course and what we mean by that is it includes your all of the things you will need to deliver this course introductory videos the textbook reading practice activity assessment items low stakes and high stakes assessment items in class presentation we've done everything we can to allow this to be the single place that a student needs to go to learn this material and you as an instructor need to go to gain access to see what your students are actually doing the course was designed to improve student engagement and we'll talk a little bit as we get into the course about the material that is in there and how the material has been sequenced for your students to give things to them in a very logical progression and it's also been designed to simplify your life as an instructor we know for instructors there's so many things that you have to do to manage your cohort of students whether it be figuring out who's logged in who's struggling who needs extra help we're trying to automate as many of those things for you as possible so you can spend time helping students rather than figuring out which students need to be problem and as we click through this you'll see a lot of this this is done through the interface this is done through the content there's a number of videos in each of these this is done through some of the features and functions such as self rating assignments so students can actually help themselves and it's a very simple experience so making things as easy as possible and we operate under the notion that most app developers do today which is that if you need instructions for your users you've probably developed something too complex so we've kept everything as simple as possible with that I'm going to open up the product demo so I'm switching here into my web browser and what you're seeing now in front of you is the course homepage for nursing informatics in the foundation of knowledge this is my course as an instructor so each of you that are watching you would get your own instance of this course your students would enroll in this they would see each other in that specific section and you would have the opportunity to customize this as you like and we talked about the customization options and customization parameters that you can use it's as simple as reordering and removing to completely adding new content if that's something that you would like um the first thing to notice right a very simple interface and you'll see that the course is laid out for each of these that you're seeing here right the sections and then the the modules here these are chapters of the textbook and you'll see this use master if you are familiar with the textbook in your current user of the textbook these match exactly to the current textbook so if you're currently textbook adopter moving to the courseware is very simple it was very important for us when we built this is make sure that those of you that are very familiar with this and like the content and use the content and make a seamless shift to the course where you don't need to think about redoing your syllabus redoing quizzes or things like that this view is the same whether you are looking at it on a laptop a tablet or phone the application is responsive its built in html5 so if you're on a phone things will reflow and things will stack appropriately but it's the same experience on a phone as it is on a tablet as it is on a lap you'll also notice when we talk about complete course where I have my tab here down at the bottom when I click on that this is my instructor resources tab I am an instructor in this course so I see my instructor resources tab as you can when you get access to the course and all of the different things you need your instructors manual the correlation guide syllabus information are right here within Junction within the course web so again we're trying to make things as simple as possible for you you so let's assume we're in week four going through a cognitive science and cognitive informatics as a learner I simply click on my lesson and I'm taken now into my my lesson this is likely a week of content for most of you if you're running a different kind of schedule it may not be but this is one chapter worth of material a couple things to note this looks very similar to the course homepage we try to keep things as simple as possible because we don't want the interface to get in the way of learning and want the interface to be as clean and simple as possible and allow students to figure out what they're actually supposed to be doing second all of the lessons all of the chapters in this courseware follow the same structure and looking PA so by week three your students have already figured out what goes where they figured out the order of things that they liked a particular kind of resource they'll be able to jump right to it again we want to make this as simple and easy as possible again this is entirely customizable so if you had things that you wanted to add to a particular lesson you could do so and we can talk about that if that's something in this lesson I mentioned earlier that things are sequenced in a way that makes sense for students and I will click through these pages to see what's behind it begins for students with an introduction and interactive lecture get students acclimated to the new material easily in a fun way then give them some videos videos and I'll show you these videos designed to engage students quickly they're out on YouTube watching videos anyway we'd rather have them here watching curated videos that we've gone through and that are selected and are appropriate rather than having them off somewhere on YouTube or on Google they then get the textbook readings then they move into practice activity so if you follow a learn practice assess model so there's the learning material and then there's the practice material flashcards a practice quiz you'll see I have three instances of a what we call thought-provoking questions these are the questions that come out of the instructors done and I'm going to show you that there are three different ways that you can implement these questions in your course if you'd like a written response way an audio response way in a discussion way if just we're not in Sambo you likely you would not have the same question three times that I'm going to show you how that work submitted assignments lecture slides and deploys so all sequence in a way that a student would go through this ready for you use all you need to do is press play let's go through some of the material and we'll begin with our introduction and our interactive lecture um first thing to note that this material is Jones and Bartlett curating material which is created by Jones and Bartlett this is the material that if you've previously adopted this course you may have seen in the on a web share somewhere this material often does not make it to students and it's very very good the subject is really helpful to students but this is high-quality Jones and Bartlett material the interactive presentation as you'll see students will put through this it is a little bit more interactive than a PowerPoint but it's essentially a slideshow the students will click through and you'll see that if I open this up here you can see that this is total it's about thirteen or fourteen slides worth of material there's some summaries and bibliographies at the end so this is not a long activity this is something that is students you start to use click through interactive so it's a little more engaging than a long reading is something that a student can click through to get themselves acclimated to the new terms in the lesson the new concepts in the lesson it does not give them the depth of knowledge that it's textbook reading would for certain but it doesn't introduce these new concepts to them in an easy familiar way and if you think about how your students are learning today they might be on the bus they might have 15 minutes in between classes or a little bit of time after lunch and being able to jump right into the course and have this material with their hands without having to go through multiple links and multiple sign-in is really helpful as you can see the material here I'll just click through a couple of the slides if you're not familiar with it it goes through the material and there's also some low stakes assessments in here where students can just come through and immediately check their answers but again is something just to engage students that's a little bit more interesting than just a flattery you when students are ready to move on they have a couple of ways to navigate your course the first 50 I have my menu button up in the upper left corner and you'll see that from here I can actually navigate to any page within the entire course if I chose so if I was already in the middle of something I was studying for a midterm and I know I need you to jump around I can do that there I could use my breadcrumb button at the top of the page which are going to show me how far into my lesson I am they're going to give me a very quick quick view of progress most likely they simply click the next button which you can see here and that takes me to the video page the video page as you'll see we broken down the videos and in this case there are six videos some weapons have more some lessons have less but it's usually somewhere in the range of about three to six how video is broken down by key topic and these are the key topics that you will see in this particular and they're aligned for students against these particular feeds the videos you'll see as you're clicking through you may have seen they're all relatively short we know that students videos students will watch videos for about three to five minutes when you start getting longer than that they start to drop off the videos that you can see I'll play one shortly for you here so as part of this particular lesson there's material on artificial intelligence and and how that actually plays into nursing informatics and how that's actually manifesting itself in the real world so we're giving students new short videos to actually go ahead and get more comfortable with the contents again these do not substitute for the textbook there are no way designed to go to the same level of depth as a textbook but we know that students watch lots and lots of videos and whether they're incorporated in the courseware or not students are going to be billing for these videos so for us we believe in bringing them in and curating them so so learners can go right here and not go to youtube and find god knows what is a much better way to learn and your soups are much likely more likely to do this if it's actually presented to them here when students are done they then click to the next learning active and this is the textbook you'll notice that the textbook takes me right to the chapter that I need to go to so again minimizing this cognitive drag if you will course if I had to go open a different app and then open my ebook and log in and figure out a chapter I was supposed to go to there's a lot of drag there there's a lot of reasons in that process that may get a student to say you know what I'm not going to bother not going to do it right now we'll do something later simply allowing them to click Next and come directly to chapter 4 very very simple for now this is an embedded ebook so a couple things to note the entire ebook comes with the courseware so it is complete if students purchase the junction courseware did you not need to buy a principle the entirety book is here forth to all of these features that you'd expect to see in an e-book so if I want to highlight things as an example highlight here I could copy things I can navigate my entire ebook through my table of contents as an example so all of the things that you would expect to see in an e-book are here very simple for students allows them to search allows them to just from the one place and access all the material that they need as you can see I think simply come through right here just keep reading my my text as I like I am going to stop here for just a moment I'm talking about content and I do want to talk about some of the features injunction because I'm doing this here because this is where we actually see students use a lot of the additional features that sits outside the specific content experience and what I mean by that is you'll see a number of options that you have up across the top here and I'm going to talk through those first the assist button so as you'll see I can click my assist button and I'm given help immediately so if I oh I didn't need to find out where my grades are I have help right here I can search for right where my grades and I get an article here about where do I find my cache scores on my grades so one it eliminates students right from saying hey I didn't know how to do something so I just stopped studying to a stop students from asking you the instructor because you frankly aren't experts in the course where you shouldn't be experts in the courseware so we're giving students the ability to help themselves if for whatever reason they cannot find an answer here they have the ability to start a conversation we have a help team that's here to support them so our students come through we are will help them in chat in the application we know what pages the wrong your browser they're using so it makes it very easy for us to help to be honest we actually get very few help calls because we find that the application is very simple to use and lightweight and students actually figure this out but if you need it it is there for so it is messaging so students that you can see this list will populate with all of the students that are registered in your section if it's something that you want to shut off weekend so if you want to shut off messaging you can but we allow students to see all of the other students in their sections this is great for online or hybrid sections when students may not be sitting next to each other and they may not know who's in their class it's also a really nice function because it means that students don't need to share their email addresses or their phone numbers so if I have another student in the class right I can message them right here right n you have I can send them a message now you'll also notice I've got my camera here so this is both text message which I can send like that or video message which I can send as well so if I wanted a video chat I can do one to one video chat with other students in my class I have my nospam so if I had a note on this page I wanted to say yep I want to take a note because something came up in this text I want to remember I can take my note right here my notes panel is tied to each particular page so it changes page to page so it is very context specific students else they really like this because if they take notes in a notebook they say well yeah I mean I class Monday Wednesday Friday and then my notes are completely out of order and sometimes it's on paper and sometimes it's on a Google Doc do you hear me that it's in the application and it also means that if they go to their course notebook you'll see here that I have notes now against the number of pages within my course and you'll see that I they're Auto outlined so I let go back and I take more notes they're right here from and I see you note I tell ya I remember what I need to do I can simply put there and come right back to the page that I was on so it helps keep students order a search function so we know we see this behavior all the time that students especially is a further into a class week 9 weekend they may have forgotten some of the concepts that they learned in week 2 or week 3 so we give them the search bar and allows them to that you know just to come back and put in some sort of search term and jump right back to another place in the course so if I search for rationalism it will tell me where that appears in the course and then I can navigate there the student it makes it much easier for me to move around the application you you can set access to a glossary so they come across terms they don't know and this is obviously a searchable glossary so they can through and they could search for things as they like and then a feature that we see more and more instructors using is an instructor or office hours so as you can see I'm now sharing so if there were other people in this course may be able to come in other students you as the instructor could manage online office hours other students would come in and they simply show up in more windows here in the application all done right here you can share screens and you can have chats associated with it so you'll see here you as an instructor you can share your screen if you wanted to talk through a specific topic students can raise and lower the hand you can have a chat now if this allows you online office hours and we know is you're trying to help your learner's and your students it's not that easy for them to always show up to your office so being able to say hey let's meet at 4 o'clock wherever you are let's just jump onto the online office hours we can have a face-to-face chat really nice feature also something that you hear all the time from online instructors they don't know what their students look like and they never get to see them face to face if you have a struggling student being able to see them face to face it's really important in a good way to actually help them give them the opportunity to see the instructor put a face to what might be a voice in the video and allow them to progress so continuing on moving into some of the practice activities so a number of practice activities that students to use these are optional practice activities flashcards a students to go through and practice and students do have a lot of options here they can change study mode they can do lots of different things it's a very nice tool this is actually embedded Quizlet which is one of those popular flashcard tool that students are using so we give it to them right here and these are all of the terms from this particular lesson continue into the next page we give students practice quizzes so obviously assessment for assessment take is great and it's a great way for you to know what your students know what they don't know but assessment for learning sake is also really helpful so you'll see on this page we've broken down this lesson into each of the chapters of the textbook so these are the subtopics or the a heads if you will within the textbook all of the some chapters and you'll see that learners can go through and they can see questions specifically along each one of those very discrete some chapters and they can go through and they can check their answers immediately so right you'll see that as students correct check the wrong answer they'll get immediate feedback on what's right or wrong it allows them to figure out what they know and what they don't know in a very low stakes environment this lesson is never submitted to the instructor so it's a great tool for students low stakes nobody is watching very easy for them what I'm going to do I'm going to back up for just one moment before I talk about the next set of activities so as I mentioned previously what we've done and you'll see that we've gone to the textbook reading the flashcards the practice quiz and we're now at this question right here if you're familiar with the instructor guide with this course you'll notice a very number of what are called thought-provoking questions aligned to each chapter there's anywhere from I say probably two to five against every particular chapter those thought-provoking questions have been loaded in conjunction is three different ways one is it written response one is an audio response and one of the discussion board I'll click 3d so you can see what they'll see what that to attila quarry the goal here is to allow you as an instructor to view that instructor resource guide if you choose you can pick some of those thought-provoking questions any of the ones that you like they're all loaded up to deliver to your students and you can not only choose which question you want to deliver but you can deliver choose which format you would like to deliver again so as an example my written response question and you'll see here that the question is how would you describe cognitive informatics reflect on a plan of care that you developed reputation how could cognitive informatics be used to create tools to help with or support this important work this is a written response the students are going to submit this to you the instructor you can make this graded you can make not rated you can find points you can do whatever you like with this the students will submit this right here so response so that's an option for you if you would like to use different options you can choose the audio response so as you'll see here this is the same question so you wouldn't deliver the written response the audio response and the discussion board you choose one R in this case students will be asked to record their answer so you're actually going to hear their voice and you as the instructor could listen to their voice replay it and give them a grade or you don't need to give them a grade entirely up to you but this is a way where it can make it a little bit more personal and if you actually have questions where it might be something around how would you address the patient how would you talk to a patient what are some of the messages you might deliver using audio response is a good way to evaluate it it's also something that's a little bit different for students so you might get a little bit more thoughtfulness in terms of what they're actually going to say and then the third option is a discussion board this is a very straightforward discussion board students would simply post their remarks here go ahead and post that you'll see that when I add here I cannot only format I could add links I can add images I could add things of that nature your students can reply to each other's responses and things of that nature this is a nice feature if you're concerned about having too much degrading so if you have a hundred students in a section and you don't want to have to braid all the written work you can use a discussion board which is much simpler to grading or doesn't necessarily even need to degree can be simply graded on participation so three different options and again what you would do is you simply select which one of them you wanted to use event it so the selection again all of the thought-provoking questions that you see in the instructor manual are loaded in and ready to use you simply need to decide which questions in which format click publish on those and then those are ready for your students they're automatically out of your gradebook if you set them as graded and they're ready to go you may have also noticed as part of the course there are other than assignment loaded into each of the chapters so this is a way again keeps things simple keep students in the same application this is the assignment that was given for this particular chapter and lesson this is a written assignment if you want you can have students submit written long-form written work here and you can grade it that way or you can ask students just click upload a file and then they would just go through and upload a file off off their desktop excuse me and then they would submit those files to you whether they be Microsoft Word or PowerPoint or whatever it might be and you can then download those grade those and get students a score like finally the last two two elements in this particular chapter so the the lecture slides these are the Jones and Barbara lecture slides that are ready for students to click through you can so we see with lecture slides if you wanted to schedule these meaning you know you don't lecture on this until say September 8th you could block this page so students would not have access to it until September 8th keep you schedule it you can edit it so if you had your own PowerPoint and you wanted to use your own PowerPoint instead of this PowerPoint you welcome to and you can edit it and adjust that no problem and so for those of you that also want to deliver the in-class presentation after the quiz so right now you'll see that my quiz is next then the quiz is the last day in line for my students some people like to give the quiz before the in-class presentation and that's fine that can be adjusted to they would simply be reordered and students receive the quiz course and then finally the quiz itself so you've seen the assessment engine and how assessments are actually delivered obviously you have the ability to make assessments graded or not graded so for these end of lesson higher stakes assessments that would be set to graded you can control the number of submissions so if you want to get students one submission or if you want to give them multiple submissions you would allow them to do that you can set time limits you can control when answers are released and if answers are relief so if you had an assessment you said I don't want any of the answers to show up until Friday night at midnight because that's when the assessments do you have control to do that you also have the ability to accept late assignments so if you as an example said this was due Friday at midnight but you actually wanted to leave the assessment open for students to take until say two following Wednesday you could do that the late submissions are scored as a zero unless you would instructor choose to accept them so if we hear from instructors all the time that as soon as something is due the flurry of emails show up you know hours later can you read open can radio we can you reopen now this is a way to allow something to stay reopened if you would like and then you can make a decision on whether or not you're willing to accept it at some point later on so what I'm going to do now that is the student experience the lessons are all similar they all follow the same structure they all follow the same sequence so you get a sense of what the lessons are like I'm now going to move to the instructor dashboard now you'll notice that this is a this is a demo dashboard this is for a US history course deej asked for it in the nursing informatics course because it only has one student is not particularly interesting to look at so it has this has dummy data in it but will give you a sense of what the dashboard looks like once students get into the course and start walking we filled the dashboard to try to answer a couple of questions simply easily for instructors and we have you know grass upon grass that we know instructors don't want to see so we've tried to boil it down to the simplest thing and what we hear from instructors all the time are two questions first is what percent of my students are on track to pass this course so first learning gage will tell you not only the average score in your class but how those students are actually breaking down by score so looking at this I can very quickly see that I have for students who are scoring less than 69 percent for less than 70 percent so it gives me a very quick visual most things on this page are clickable so I can click here and I can see all of my students in this class it's sort of Albert Einstein and old Galileo like my terrific class here right and I can see very quickly my scores for each of my students and I can even deep dive on some of my students so if I open up Enrico ferme a here I can get a very quick visual not only of Enrico's performance but in region of performance compared to the class average so you'll see that this particular students for 97% doing much better than the class average spending a lot less time on average than the class I also get some measures around discussion post is a measure of agent but you'll see I can see a lesson by lesson how the student is doing and very quickly I can see here that this student is doing better than the class average and that's pending matters talks so this is this is a high-performing student probably more interesting and impactful or which is what we hear from instructors is our engagement measure we have a tremendous amount of data about students we know how old are doing time they're spending you know when they're sending their time so we are going to break down for you how well your students are engaging this is a direct flow on from the source so the first question we get from instructors is how well are my students doing the next question well what am I supposed to do about it what can I do about so your class will be broken down into three cohorts here on track means that they're scoring above 70% which is the threshold that's at here that can be changed if you'd like but it's preset to 70% so students that are on track to pass and then for students who are not on track to pass they're either going to show up as struggling or disengaged struggling students are those who are spending time in the application they're putting in the work or putting in the effort but they're still not doing well so it's an disengage disengage students are simply not spending the time and we hear from instructors all the time that the student is putting in the effort and putting in the work but the instructor will do whatever they can to get the students past o'clock as opposed to the addition disengaged students that may just need a good kick so you can click on that and use again see how your students are breaking down and you can see that you've got these four students who are struggling not you can email them here so they'll be emailed in a BCC email so they don't know we know each other it's entirely a FERPA compliant but if you email those students and you might say we see this a lot you know either that's reminding them that you're having office hours or we can reach out to you they can but providing some positive feedback to those students that are struggling and putting in the effort conversely the disengaged students may get a more Kirk email that says hey if you haven't spending all the time the past couple of weeks you probably want to come in and spend some time if you want to pass this course I'm not going to go through all of the other data in here but there's a tremendous amount of information as I said everything is clickable so around how students are scoring lesson by lessons amount of time they're spending the number of students that have logged in the one thing I am going to highlight down here you'll see the alerts so build into something we called Junction beeping it is an early alert system again because we know what students are doing we have a lot of information about how we could possibly help it so about once a week students who opt in both avian students must opt into this and they will receive if they opt in they will receive an email and an SMS and the SMS is critical because students don't really read it but a different SMS they will read it the students will get about once a week a message based off of their performance whether they're a high performer or whether it will struggle they will get any message reminding them about their course work they're doing really well we'll get a keep up the good work kind of message if they're struggling they will get a positive message trying to encourage them if they have not logged in they may get a little more of a pointee message reminding the login but hitting students when they're not thinking about personal informatics when I'm not thinking about school is a great way to trigger with them hey maybe I need to get back in and do this I already take that quiz I needed to do something so it's a really good way ashle reminding students and get them thinking about school and course material when they might not otherwise be hitting about that so with that I've gone through the student experience much of the instructor experience having to open this up now to some questions if there's interest we can go through a couple of those things around single sign-on implementation we'll see what some of those folks on the line think if you like and maybe while you're starting to add your questions the other thing that I can go through here if you are interested which I will go through here I know there's always a lot of conversation about integration with LMSs so let me just jump out in front of that question yes we are healthy I complained we work with any LTI compliant LMS is a canvas blackboard d2l Schoology Sakai Moodle and we have integrated with all of them in various different levels the way that most schools integrate is a single single sign-on so you'll see here this is an instance of canvas I've got a couple of links so I can deep dive into the course any particular lesson or I can simply log in from a student perspective and from an instructor perspective what this looks like is you set this link up in canvas which is relatively straightforward click on your link here you then launch your application and your page and you'll see that I am automatically logged in taken directly to my course all this is made of course a home it's in crochet but this would drop students into your particular course section the first time they log in they will be asked to validate their account agree to Terms of Service depending on how your course is set up they may be asked to pay the note about payment is that we do offer the ability to pursue justice to get a grace period at the front of the term so students can access the course material day one inclusive access notion not necessarily built into two to the bursar but students can access the course material from day one and don't need to pay from day one so they will have increased period at the front end of from the course to go through the material if they add drop or season to drop the course they if you radically drop the course before they pay so it eliminates a lot of challenge here and eliminates more important with students that say I'm not going to pay for this right away so I don't know how many people course and then two weeks in are now two weeks behind everybody else on their class so with that let me open this back up to questions and I will pass this back the Janet agenda is managing the easy questions online so Jen any questions come up certainly happy to answer any those right now absolutely great thanks so much Derek that was a great in-depth overview and as I've been you know sitting here listening to the presentation we've had some great questions come in so just first one right off the top who keeps the videos updated and do you have the ability as an instructor to add your own questions so the videos are updated and monitored by junction you're jogging park so junket we've been as I mentioned we're an OE our courseware provider so we have a number of big lis introductory courses that are we are delivered so we're very familiar with the oer space we've got a lot of experience in selecting videos that are high-quality academically appropriate and as you mentioned will not come down so we've gotten pretty good at identifying that but videos you come down for any number of reasons and we do monitor that constantly when videos go down we will select appropriate videos and we will work with the Jones and Bartlett subject matter experts to make sure that from a Content perspective they are relevant to the content and appropriate for a college-level audience for this course so the process work where that will happen the second part of that question yes the entire course is entirely customizable and that means I'll talk through about where this happens a lot you can ask as you saw when we're on the video page but there were maybe five or six videos you can actually add videos there that you'd like where we see a lot of the customization is at the very front end of a lesson a lot of instructors like to record themselves maybe you know five minutes of hey just coming less than his own cognitive informatics what we're going to be talking about in class is this as you go through the material what you see focusing on is this and whatever it is but it's a short introductory introduction from you the instructor and those can be put on individual pages at the front end of every single lesson if you'd like so you have the ability to change things on a page you have the ability to change pages themselves you also have the ability at I'll mention this actually change the entire course structure and I don't actually mean reordering things but as an example if you teach this course over two tones and you don't want the second half to appear then that can be done quite simply if you skip certain chapters or if you eat chapters and perhaps a different order it can be reordered to meet your syllabus rather than having your syllabus change to meet the coursework so customization is available as a whole number of levels thanks Derek a couple of other questions you might have already touched on this but maybe you could just review the canvas integration a little bit of information about that and also does the gradebook migrate over into canvas as well yeah so let me go back to the back of the canvas board so yeah so we are LTI compliant so we follow the LTI spec so what that means is as you can see here so these are links that are added to canvas they're external tools and we have instructions on how to set these up as just about every institution we've worked with instructors do have the credentials to do this there are a few institutions where they didn't like the allow instructors the ability to set unit for the most part it's breakfast you do this the links can be set so in this case if you were using links like this out of canvas or blackboard or any other LMS you would not need to provide students any login information all they would need is this link dropped into their canvas course and you see that I'm on the modules page so I can drop it anywhere I know the registration is automatic it uses the canvas credentials that a suit has automatically log them in you can drop to the course home page you could also do what's called deep linking so you see here that on their drop into lesson 4 so when I click this instead of being taken to of course homepage I'm taken to this lesson on cognitive science and cognitive and format so you have the option to not only take students to just of course but if you want to drop them on to certain pages you can we see that for things like higher state assessments I didn't mention this before when you there are there's a midterm and a final built into the application so what some instructors might do is build a link here and this to the midterm and students can drop directly into the midterm which they wouldn't otherwise be able to happen in Junction if you're dropping students directly into assessments and assignments the grades you push right back into canvas the others I have set them up as an assignment in canvas with the appropriate points and the due dates as you would normally canvas which he'd assign each one of those as basically instead of building the quiz in canvas you would just call it an external tool dropping the link to an external tool and when students take that the grade does indeed push back to the canvas gradebook we also allow the gradebook or grade books can be downloaded as a CSV file so there's a download download upload function within canvas and blackboard and all of the LMS as where chores can be uploaded through a CSV file so that's an option available to you as well if you're interested we have a guide on how to set up these joints within canvas when you register for a course and I don't know if you seen any this information for Jenna Sheridan but when you request access to a course once you're approved as an instructor you'll get an email that actually has the three pieces of information the three codes that you'll need to set up single sign-on within your LMS if you'd like the guide on how to set up single sign-on you'll see as my email is at the end of this presentation you can send me know and we'll share that document with you on how to set up a single sign-on like the whole process takes about maybe five minutes maybe Watts thanks Derek and in just a few minutes I will go ahead and share that link just a couple of other questions I wanted to address we did get the question on pricing so the price per student for this product is $64 and another question that we got is how this is associated with the textbook so the textbook is sold separately but the idea behind this course is that it can be used standalone and has all of the content if you would like to review different options for using the course plus the text I do recommend that you reach out to your sales rep and at the conclusion of this meeting the account managers will be notified that you did attend this webinar and will be reaching out to you so if you have questions about that that would be a great time to talk about that and that would be with your account manager another question that we've been getting throughout the hour is related to the level so the level for this textbook in terms of content it's geared toward those students who are enrolled in higher level BSN programs this text also is pretty flexible in the way the content is written and it can also be used as a refresher at an MSN level as well so kind of dual flexibility there so at this point give me just one second I'm going to go ahead and share out that registration link for anybody else and then we'll go back to the questions as well so is there extension this is the form that you want to fill out it's a bitly link that I just sent that will bring you to your landing page and will allow you to request course access so that you can check out the course so if anybody else has any questions we will stay on the line for a few more a few more minutes and I think that really covered it in terms of some of the additional questions that we received throughout the hour there anything else that you think that faculty should know when they're adopting this course I think you know as you're going through this right think about how you want to deliver your course and if there it is about the course where that don't exactly fit just think about you know other ways to use this this is about taking all this wonderful content that you've created at Jones & Bartlett learning to take the flexibility of an online tool and making sure that you can teach the course the way you want to teach it as easily as you can so if there's things that you're thinking of please don't hesitate to send us an email ring up we're happy to discuss how this can be implemented or or answer any questions you have there I think someone also had a question I'm not sure if we covered this when we're talking about the LMS integration about integration with desire2learn we just give a quick overview on that sure desire2learn or brightspace also an LTI compliant application so it would work exactly the same way you see in canvas these circles for setting up the linker or slightly different the terminology is slightly different but it would work the same way single sign-on so you can set up students with that single link that they can then click or alternatively I should mention this as well you have that option to set up single sign-on from your lms you also have the option of just sending students to the website and they should create an account and you have a course code a six-digit course code that they were used for register register for the course so you don't need to use single sign-on if you don't want too much professors do lots of professors don't but any LTI compliant LMS will work exactly the way you'd see canvas so it's canvas blackboard desire2learn brightspace Moodle Sakai school G really some of some of the homegrown ones we've seen also are all LTI compliant it seems to be the standard that everybody thanks Derek one of our faculty is asking if we have other courses within the system so maybe you could talk briefly about the other courses that you've developed for Jones and Bartlett learning sure absolutely so we have for Jones and Bartlett learning we have this nursing informatics course that you see we have a cyber warfare course and we also have a delivering health care in America course we're continually looking to build out more so if their courses that you're interested in do let us know but those are the courses that we have and then Jones and Bartlett also can assist you if you happen to be teaching any entry levels of these areas we do have open educational resource based courses against intro subject areas so things like intro psych intro soch and things like that if you're happen to be teaching there's as well excellent thanks Derek a quick question about the length of access and we have one faculty member asking that after the course ends how long do both the student and the faculty member have access to the course itself yes the faculty members have basically access in perpetuity and we know that you need access to grades and scores and things like that for for a long period of time so instructors have access to all of that students have access when access ends they can download certain parts of the course things like their notes and things like that when they log in they will see the course in their library although after after the term is up they will see they will see it is basically completed I think you for whatever reason need to get into the course there's always way they can do that but the term is 180 days if you need more than that for whatever reason if there's something about how your school delivers the program just let us know and we can talk about ways to adjust that but as an instructor you basically have access for as long as you need students get the access and then some download options or for things I have a few people telling me um thanks Derek just that that link is not working so let me just test it really quickly and while I do that I'm just going to address the pricing question again so the price per student for the course is sixty four ninety five and you know that's for the length of time that Derek just mentioned and you know the instructor doesn't pay for that it's we pay the student actually pay so everyone that wants access pays for that so let me just try that link one more time perhaps we copied it incorrectly and this link will give you access to to check it out try it before you want to adopt it so yeah yeah i okay just tried it it does seem to be working so I just encourage you to just copy and paste the whole string just in case you didn't grab the entire the entire link you yeah if there's any issues you see you'll see my email with Rex on screen right now you can shoot me an email I'll send you a way over email but that's what you hear excellent oh we don't have any more questions and Derek I really want to thank you for joining us here today and you know for demoing this really innovative product and just want to call everyone's attention again Derek has left his email up there and you will receive a follow-up email with you know the registration link Derek's contact information and then a link to our YouTube channel we have been recording this session and it will be live on our channel tomorrow so if you'd like to view it again or if you want to share it with any of your colleagues please feel free to do so we're really excited about this product and want to thank everyone for joining and have a great rest of the day thanks everybody okay thanks Eric take care bye bye
