Workshop: Real-Touch for iClass ( June 16th, 2016 )
In this workshop, Dr. Wilton Fok will guide participants to learn how to use a Cloud-Base Interactive Service (iClass) to conduct real-time interactive class, which is an essential component for flipped classroom implementation. Students in a class can use their smartphones, tablets or laptop PCs to share their ideas and answers in graphic, text, video, and audio with teachers and other peers in a classroom through the cloud network. This platform is being used in secondary and tertiary institutions in Singapore, US , UK , Hong King and China. Participants will learn not only how to create different interactive activities on the platform, but also the pedagogy of how to conduct an interactive flipped class with the sharing of some teaching examples in various universities and higher schools. Free accounts will be granted to each workshop participant.Prof. Wilton FOK, 2016 Conference Co-Chair

Prof. WANG Qiyun, 2016 Keynote Speaker
Keynote Presentation for Day 1 (June 16, 2016)
“Design Perspectives of Blended Learning Environments”
Blended learning is often defined as a combination of online learning and face-to-face learning. It has the potential to integrate the strengths of both face-to-face learning and online learning, and reduces the limitations of merely applying either. Research has also shown that blended learning often outperforms traditional classroom learning or online learning. In this talk, I will discuss about the key design perspectives of blended learning environments, which are the pedagogical, social and technical design. Also, I will illustrate how a blended learning environment for a Master course is designed and developed from the three perspectives by following the design research approach.
