2/3/2017 DOLCE: Instructional technology tools and practices
From ATS Video on February 3rd, 2017
February 3rd DOLCE (Discussing Online Learning and Collaborative Education) meeting in 1310 Surge III / The Grove, at which time we will hear from two experts on instructional technology tools and practices.
Melinda M. Livas, MS, MLIS, MA, is a Physical Sciences & Engineering Librarian, as well as an instructional technologist with a passion for online teaching and learning. She introduce a number of instructional technology applications, and led a discussion about the new ways we can start to imagine engaging with our students. We will also discuss the extent to which our learning management system Canvas can replicate the functions of some of these tools. If there is significant faculty interest, we can also investigate the extent to which Canvas can work with the following tools in the future. They include the following:
Padlet– One of the most collaborative, online bulletin boards available. Extremely intuitive, and easy to use.
Screencastify- Quickly create screencasts using a chrome extension.
ScreencastOmatic- design clear screen recordings on the fly.
Tildee– Create mini tutorials on the fly, and easily share with peers.
Prezi- a uniquely different platform for presenting, and sharing content.
