Limited Capacity seats available

Open Session Limited to 30 Participants (First-Come, First-In). 

Do you have unmet pedagogical goals due to the constraints of your current LMS? Do you want to have a better experience for your students and yourself?

In this workshop (a mixture of presentation and hands-on activities) Paul will introduce Grav, a no database CMS and his open source Course Hub project to help other tech-savvy instructors 'flip' their institutional LMS to overcome these challenges while still keeping sensitive student information in the LMS.

For the hands-on elements of this workshop a notebook computer (MacOS or Windows) is required. Participants should be comfortable with editing text files, copying/pasting/editing URLs, connecting to a Webserver via FTP, and be familiar with basic Web page elements. Upon completion of the workshop participants will have basic knowledge of how the Grav Course Hub is organized and have a copy of it on their computer synced to a public GitHub repository.
