Chaplin School of Hopsitality & Tourism Management campus
In August 2006, FIU unveiled the first US School of Hospitality and Tourism in Tianjin, China. The Marriott Tianjin China Program is FIU's largest international program, with a capacity of up to 2000 students.
- To provide students with easy access to bite-sized learning content integrated through their cloud-based LMS system, Canvas.
- To supplement their faculty curriculum with practical learning accreditation in the form of micro-credentials.
Bite-sized online content
Each video is 3-5 minutes in length and can be completed on demand-on the way to
school or after class.
On completion of a Typsy course students earn a Typsy certificate – a micro-credential – which they can then showcase to Faculty, and current or future employers.
Of the FIU Faculty who have used Typsy as a blended learning tool, all have seen very positive results in their students’ learning.
"When we decided to sign up with Typsy, the key factors we were looking for were to gain access to a wide library of practical, highly relevant learning content for today's Millennial generation. We need to prepare our students to become job ready when they graduate, and Typsy was able to support these content delivery and micro-credentialing needs in a very cost-effective way.
Michael Cheng, Ph.D., CHE (Dean of Chaplin School)
"What I love about Typsy is that my students are engaged. What is always hard to do in today's world of instant gratification, is to maintain relevance with this generation of students. Typsy not only combines a brilliant learning approach in all their videos, but it's incredibly easy to integrate into Canvas which made it super-simple for my class to watch and learn. The team at Typsy were great to work with through the process of matching our Competencies & Curriculum requirements with their video library to ensure my students were directed to the most appropriate content for my course."
Andrew Moreo, Ph.D. (Assistant Professor, Chaplin School)
FIU students have also provided positive feedback on our course library by providing many of the Typsy courses with 5 stars.
By embedding Typsy into the flow of learning for Faculty members, FIU was able to increase the overall engagement of their students, which ultimately will pay off with higher graduation rates. In a competitive environment, where sometimes government funding is predicated on maintaining high graduation and job placement rates, it's imperative that Hospitality and Hotel Management schools seek blended learning tools that can easily be integrated into their existing student learning experience.
Typsy and FIU have built a partnership that is continuing with further Faculty, classes and students being added on. As the Typsy content library grows, soon nearly all the 2500+ students in the FIU's Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management will be able to increase their learning and make themselves more marketable when they graduate.
FIU has achieved significant results since signing with Typsy in Spring of 2018.
More than 835 hours of blended learning has taken place just over 10,000 individual lessons being watched. Their participating students have an average viewing time of 2.6 hrs and have gained a total of 10,316 skill credits.
