The Flexible Learning Environments eXchange (FLEXspace) is an online resource designed for those in higher education who are considering building or renovating classrooms or other learning venues. It includes a searchable collection of photographs, line drawings, slide decks, floor plans, spec sheets, case studies, research papers, inventories, and videos that describe physical learning spaces. Users can search the database and review details for each record and can build collections of examples that can be shared with others. For learning space planners, FLEXspace can save time, money, and effort, and it can promote clearer communication between faculty and academic administration about how to build innovative classrooms that effectively support teaching and learning.
The 7 Things You Should Know About... series from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) provides concise information on emerging learning technologies. Each brief focuses on a single technology and describes what it is, where it is going, and why it matters to teaching and learning. Use these briefs for a no-jargon, quick overview of a topic and share them with time-pressed colleagues.
In addition to the 7 Things briefs, you may find other ELI resources useful in addressing teaching, learning, and technology issues at your institution. To learn more, please visit the ELI Resources page.
