Kaplan University is a different school of thought.® We expect our online conference to do the same, provide a different school of thought about how talented educators can learn from each other by creating a virtual conference space. Many of the best learning experiences occur in communities.
Five Minutes of Fame is a trademarked event allowing NMC academic members to show off their latest new media projects.
For this Five Minutes of Fame demonstration at the 2011 NMC Summer Conference in Madison, Wisconsin, selected NMC member organizations were given five minutes each to highlight innovations of all sorts, from multimedia and web-based projects, to course modules and newly invented or adapted tools, to student portfolios and collaborations with off-campus groups. In each fast-paced session, the audience saw numerous examples of the exciting work their NMC colleagues are doing.
