Greg Beyrer (CRC) created this great resource about using Outlook rules to document Regular Effective Substantive Contact when sending emails from D2L. Check it out:
FLC Online Educators Agenda and Links
Regular Effective Contact
Here are the D2L usage figures for Fall 2012:
D2L Sites = 350
Graded Components (FLC course sections linked to D2L Sites above) = 426
Faculty Using D2L = 150
Student Enrollments = 12,643
The difference between D2L Sites and Graded Components indicates that some faculty maintain a single D2L site for multiple sections of the same class. For instance, if a faculty member teaches 3 sections of Nutrition 300, they might choose to set up a single D2L site for all three sections.
Here are charts showing FLC’s D2L usage across the above four dimensions from Summer 2008 (when D2L first became available) to the present:

New report from the folks @ Pew about the demographics of Twitter users. Minority Internet users are more than twice as likely to use Twitter than are white Internet users. Another opportunity for faculty to reach out to historically/statistically (at least in the Los Rios district) underperforming students?

Great interface for easy QR code creation for all the usual stuff – url, sms, etc. – but also things like email and vcalendar.
