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.

Face-to-face and online discussions vary in format: classroom conversations are spontaneous and include body language, whereas online forums allow for careful composition. We will compare these differences, which will help us to assess which types of discussion prompts can be successful in each modality. Then we will consider how to leverage student discussion between the online and face-to-face formats.
