I was able to put together a one-hour training seminar for our team on how to use H5P and then our staff was able to really quickly build courses on the site.

Within a month, we had 14 programs up on the Moodle™ platform in some version and that was really made possible by the simplicity of building courses in Moodle™ with H5P.

Don't have the resources to create your own content? Bring it in!

Sometimes, it is more effective to seek help from content experts to create custom courses or provide you with pre-made courses. This session will explore how to integrate a variety of externally created content into your LMS and what resources are available to get your team the content they need to succeed.

About our panelists

The ultimate goal of university education is to prepare students for their next role in life: their career. University partnerships with employers are increasingly vital in ensuring that students are ready for the job market, and continue to acquire new skills and knowledge as they grow in their careers.

Not only do these partnerships improve student outcomes, but they can also help bring in money that helps academic institutions deliver on this promise. However, despite all their advantages, productive partnerships are hard to cultivate and maintain.

During this conversation-style session, we explored the evolving role of these partnerships and approaches for ensuring that they’re beneficial for the employer, the academic institution, and, above all, the student.  

This session was led by Michael Feldstein, Chief Accountability Officer at e-Literate. He was joined by Kara Monroe, Founder and CEO of Monarch Strategies, Phill Miller, Managing Director of Open LMS, and Kevin Leier,  Professional Development Specialist at North Central Education Cooperative for an open discussion on this important topic.

Bridging the Gap Between Higher Education and Future Employers

Phill is a long-time leader in EdTech, mostly because he went to school for way too long, and couldn't get away… Computer Science, MBA, Law School—it just wasn't enough. Since joining a startup called ANGEL Learning, Phill has spent nearly 20 years in EdTech and he's loved (almost) every minute of it. Time at Blackboard, Moodlerooms (now Open LMS), Oxygen Education, and stints on the boards of IMS Global and ClearScholar give him a unique perspective on the market. As a father of four kids, Phill has a vested interest in online learning. When he's not at his MacBook keyboard, he's probably trying to waterski (poorly) or reading a book about princesses or Paw Patrol with his kids.
