In Spring 2014, Dr. Walter Kimball, a Professor of Education and the Program Coordinator for Educational Psychology and Exceptionalities, collaborated with CTEL Learning Designer Dr. Rucha Modak to offer SED518 Instructional Strategies in Special Education through the Google Communities platform.
The course exists as a private community through Google Plus. Dr. Kimball and his fellow instructor Sanford Price integrate Google Drive into the community to share weekly assignments, model student submissions as well as create a submission and work space for students in the community. The weekly modules are presented as a ‘category’ and student names and particular assignments are identified with custom made hashtags, in order to help everyone easily recognize individual participation and sift through the information generated on this platform.
