Magna Commons

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:
