NWeLearn 2019 has ended
Welcome to NWeLearn 2019! We are excited about his annual event. Here is some housekeeping information to navigate the event:
  • The conference is hosted in the Convention Center, a separate building next to the Riverhouse Hotel. You can walk there from the hotel by taking one of the paths that go under MT Washington Drive or drive directly there.
  • The Convention Center has two levels. Meals and main sessions will be held in the lower level and the breakout sessions will be held in the main or 1st floor.
  • Restrooms are in the 1st Floor across from Cascadia B.
  • The Thursday night, Networking & Hors D’oeuvres, will be held right after the last Thursday breakout session in the main entrance space by the fireplace on the 1st floor.
Feel free to ask any questions, post your experiences in the Slack Community site, nwelearn.slack.com, and upload your pictures to the NWeLearn Conference 2019 Google Photos site.

Baker Web Academy is the third-largest K-12 fully online charter school in Oregon. Students in all grades participate in online courses using the Canvas Learning Management System. There are 2100 students, 100 faculty members, and more than 1200 courses in the school’s Canvas instance.
In April of 2018, Baker Web Academy licensed DesignPLUS by Cidi Labs to streamline design processes in all its courses. In the year that followed, Ryan Gates (Technology director at Baker Web Academy), created course templates with interactive design elements to create a cohesive look and feel for all courses. 
Streamlining processes have saved the Baker tech team hours of work; now they are able to address teacher and student needs in Canvas with universal solutions.
