Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC), in collaboration with the League of Innovation in the Community College, is offering $250,000 to $750,000 grants to support promising educational technology initiatives. NGLC’s RFP offers funding for the following types of activities:
- Increasing the use of blended (hybrid) learning models that combine face-to-face instruction with online learning activities;
- Deepening students’ learning and engagement through interactive applications, such as digital games, interactive video, immersive simulations, and social media;
- Developing more open courseware for developmental/gatekeeper courses with low completion rates; and
- Helping institutions use learner analytics to monitor student progress and provide appropriate supports and interventions.
West Virginia’s community colleges, which are already doing some innovative things in several these areas, are likely to submit several pre-proposals, which are due 19 November 2010
