Abstract Title: Student Engagement: Looking Beyond the Classroom
Abstract: Measuring student engagement is often looked at as an in-class activity only. However, looking at students' involvement in their courses beyond the classroom reveals hidden dynamics factoring into students' learning. Course Networking (CN) is a course management system (CMS) designed to provide a medium for students to engage socially/academically outside of the classroom. In our study, we utilized both qualitative and quantitative research techniques to evaluate each student's engagement outside of the course.  By comparing this evaluation to the students' respective grades we hope to determine if there is any correlation between CN use and final course grade.
