Student created videos allow you to collect student presentations or oral homework online. This can free up classroom time or give you the ability to watch a student’s performance in an online course. Students can create videos on their phones or laptops and link them to the Blackboard course using Panopto. We will explore a few ways for students to create videos and how you can harness Panopto to collect them.
Thursday November 19, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
VoiceThread is an interactive discussion tool that uses multimedia. You can create presentations or discussion prompts and ask students to respond using video, audio or text, which makes the tool flexible and accessible. We will demo the tool, explore possible use cases (including the grading feature), and show you how to link to a VoiceThread in Blackboard.
