    Video Tools The Video Tools feature is something I would need to think about using. I have numerous years of video producing, shooting, editing, and narrating. But putting together high quality video presentations is a lot of work, and very time consuming. However, I do understand there are quite a few persons who are "visual learners". For them, I would take the extra time to create video presentations and utilize them here, if needed. I am very interested in the online quiz feature associated with Video Tools. Dave@LaCrosse

Screencast-O-Matic - Free online screen recorder for instant screen capture video sharing. - 1 views

  •  
    The BEST screen cast tool, in my opinion. I use this a lot to answer student questions in a more engaging manner. Share your screen and do picture in picture so students can see you and your screen at one time. This takes the level of interaction between facilitator and student to new online levels.

      I really like the capability of combining programs like Notebook or smartboard, power point, PDF's or prezi into a one compatible platform.

      I use Prezi almost daily and the results are amazing. My students get glued to the screen and hopefully to more knowledge. The best part is that you can browse for hundreds if not thousands of Prezi presentation shared around the world

  • Presentation Tools Show, don't tell Web 2.0 brings a whole new dimension to the old adage "show, don't tell"—and lets you share your presentations anytime, anywhere, with anyone you like. With Web 2.0 you can push the boundaries of traditional presentations, mix things up, and make learning more engaging than ever before.

      I actually have used Prezi for some classroom presentations; I find it gives presenting a bit more dimension and interest...and frankly, it's fun! I've gotten several of my students to use it, when they didn't have Power Point. It's really a great free tool.

      Prezi creates presentations that are out of this world, literally! Imagine being able to present your findings on the solar system -- not by following a linear, slide by slide structure, but instead following the structure of planets orbiting the sun! This "3d presentation tool" rocks!

      Poll Everywhere is a great tool! I have used this in class for both academics and for a bit of fun! Students really enjoy it; if someone doesn't have a cell phone or text capability, I have them pair up with someone that does, and they work together to answer the question(s). Lisa

      Edmoto is a great way to introduce students to online communities. It models Facebook, which could be dangerous if teachers are trying to create learning community and not just a social community. However, it is a great stepping stone into what online courses involve.

    I tried using this as a Learning Management System (LMS) a few years ago.  I was introduced to it through a Science Technology and Mathematics (STEM) Institute I attended.  I found it to be beneficial in aiding students with personal responsibility, by having information available at all times to access.  I moved away from using it when Google Documents became a feature for all of our students.  It was much easier to share that way.  We know use Haiku Learning that has many similar features but allows for Google Drive being linked.

  • Key Areas of Consideration for Educators
  • Missing from this dialogue, however, is discussion of how best to tackle some of the practical, less paradigm-shifting questions about ownership, privacy and security, access, accessibility and compliance, stability of technology, intellectual property rights, and copyright law.
  • The question really is one of ownership and rights: who owns not only the tangible item that is created, but the intellectual concepts, ideas or processes behind the creative work or property?
  • Increasingly, universities are respecting students’ IP rights, mainly by recognizing them as copyright holders of the work they create.
  • While faculty members may understand that having access to another’s work does not make them owners or give them rights to freely use the content as they wish, this concept may not be so clear for students. Recognizing the ease with which digital content can be copied, remixed, and reused, it is wise to facilitate discussions or assign readings about ownership and attribution, addressing ethical and legal content use.
  • Using mediated tools that capture discussions and activities in an open public space fixes these events for digital perpetuity and makes them potentially available to a world audience.
  • Will this public learning space inhibit risk-taking and instead foster a reluctance to share ideas with a broader audience for fear that these things will come back to haunt the student later?
  • Faculty should consider not only having a discussion about online privacy but also include a statement in their syllabus about proper conduct and expectations for both students and faculty.
  • faculty can use these issues as teaching topics that aim to enhance students’ media literacy.
  • faculty members need to consider a chosen medium’s ability to accommodate students’ diverse learning needs, which include accessibility as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • the availability of assistive technology tools to enhance accessibility for a wide range of challenges and disabilities seems to have increased
  • Online social media sites create an even more challenging environment as they are rich in media, images, and links facilitating complex interactions that use scripting languages not compatible with accessibility software
  • The most common stability issue for technology is likely the removal of content by the software web host or system provider because of a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) take-down request
  • If being in a university-sponsored password protected online space that is limited to only the current class has created a fictitious safety net for using copyrighted materials, taking this class out into the open web--a public space available for the world to view--should spark some serious contemplation.

Using Diigo in the Classroom - Student Learning with Diigo - 9 views

  • One common problem of student computer use in schools is access to student work from home. Not every school provides a way for students to access their school data. In such cases, if students create bookmarks at school, they will not have access from other computers.
  • Using Diigo, students can bookmark important websites and access them from school, home, the library or any internet-connected computer. Students will always have access to this data.

    After taking E-Learning for Educators I decided to try Diigo in a face to face course I work on. Many students have really appreciated it, especially those who don't own laptops and work from various school computers. For our two week term break we've asked each student to bookmark two articles with a short explanation why they have selected it as well as reesponding to at least one that someone else wrote as a way to encourage extensive reading. It has been fascinating to see the articles they are selected (these are Lao students preparing for university study in Australia) and their reactions to it. I've also set up a Diigo group for teachers at my school as a way to share articles that previous we'd print off or email around. Thank you E-learning for Educators for introducing me to this great tool!
  •  
    I should just add that I love getting the daily digest of updates from this group and often go directly to those articles, even if I don't always make it back to the group site.
  •  
    What a great idea to create a Diigo group for the teachers in your school. Yet another way to share and create a community with your fellow faculty members. Thanks for sharing!
