Increasing engagement in your elearning program takes more than an email every now and then.

Google Glass is a wearable computer with a head-mounted camera and display that can take photos, record videos, translate signs or speech, surf the web or play games.

eLearning Instructional Designer Jennifer Moss, tweeted her idea to take photographs of the aurora in her backyard with the tag #ifihadglass.

Winners of the contest became part of Google’s Explorer Program so that they could shape the development of the Google Glass device. The contest is open to U.S. residents and contestants are admitted as slots open up.

Denver schools receive e-learning grant
News from Virtual College:

US investment firm Janus has donated $ 2.1 million (?1.3 million) to the Denver Public Schools (DPS) district for the development of online learning.

The company has announced that it will help teachers deliver quality content while providing them with access to real-time data, allowing them to know where students are at any given time.

This is according to president of the Janus Foundation Casey Cortese, who takes care of charity grants and gifts, the Denver Post reports.

Rather than replacing teachers with technology, Ms Cortese said, the cash injection is designed to give them better access to students’ skills.

PS will spend the grant money on the employment of a director of blended learning – the combination of human instruction and digital education – and will train teachers to adapt their lessons to new software.

Several schools in the region are already taking part in blended learning, including the West Generation Academy, which is one of two new buildings opened last month as part of West High School.

Tom Boasberg, superintendent for DPS, was quoted as saying: “We see tremendous potential for technology to be such an important and useful tool for teachers.”
