ClassCast Podcast Ep.020 -- Jon Kasica -- Implementing an LMS, Blended/Distance Learning, Covid-19, & More
ClassCast Podcast Ep.020 features Jon Kasica, the Northeast Regional Sales Director in K-12 Education for Canvas Learning Management Systems (and a proud JMU Duke!), talking with host Ryan Tibbens about implementing a new learning management system (LMS), blended/distance learning, serving students, leveraging technology, working purposefully, adapting to distance learning in the time of Covid-19, and more. This episode offers classroom teachers a rare glimpse into some of the considerations and concepts behind buying, adapting, and implementing an LMS as well as some advice for how to proceed with the future of the school year in doubt.
NOTE: In the episode, both speakers discuss a return to school "in a few weeks"; however, the situation surrounding Covid-19 and public education is rapidly developing. By the night of 3/14, Ryan Tibbens had reassessed and no longer believes regular school will resume until fall, maybe later. (Recorded 3/13/20.)
Highlight clips will be available to on major streaming platforms and YouTube soon!
