Course Hub Overview

Categories: Strategies

The Course Hub was the principal recommendation for how best to Segue from Segue made by the Curricular Technology team in the fall of 2010.  The Course Hub has been in use at Middlebury for nearly a semester now, having been launched by the LIS Web Application Development group in September 2011.

To help others understand this innovative, curricular resource aggregation platform, I made a screencast that gives an overview of its design.

This is one of a series of Course Hub screencasts we will be publishing in the coming weeks.  Check out the Teaching with Technology blog to see Course Hub Case Studies
