This installment in the @5min Video series is on the Magna Commons.¬†
Description: Instead of doing a video this week, I want to send out a different video-based resource. Below is an email from Monica Devanas of the Center for Teaching Advancement and¬†Assessment¬†Research (CTAAR) on the Magna Commons. For the last few weeks I've been participating in the Magna Mentor "Monday20-Minute Mentor"¬†Series which has been really interesting and helpful.
The CTAAR is very pleased to be able to provide you with additional webinars from Magna Publishers, on the¬†Magna Commons ¬†Website. There are over one hundred webinars, on many of the same topics that we have been reviewing this semester and many, many more. ¬†Each one is an hour or more, covering each topic in greater depth.
Here's how to access the¬†Magna Commons:
