Abstract

A few years ago, the prospect of an interruption to the normal ability to have classes on the campus of a private, international K-12 school, due to the H1N1 flu scare, created the need to devise plans for emergency preparedness. In particular, the task entailed designing a strategy to provide for the delivery of educational content to the students online, i.e., e-learning using cloud-based Web 2.0 tools. The addition of this new responsibility required the development of a strategy to affront the eventual crisis, and the emphasis to focus on the issues of training the faculty. This presentation will discuss the issues of motivating faculty to learn how to create e-learning modules for students that might be negatively affected by the loss of a brick and mortar school setting.
