For the first time that I’m aware of, we are participating in ELI online as a team (paid for one registration, invited faculty to join us, which the organizers encourage) & so far, it’s going well. Very impressive to see the investment in the effort to deliver a whole conference online. Hashtag: #eli2013.

U-pace method: http://www4.uwm.edu/upace/about.html – great resource, including free training & a syllabus to get started.
Use info about the student that’s recorded in the LMS to monitor what they are & are not doing, intervene quickly.
