  • According to Wikipedia, the web development definition of Mashup is: “In web development, a mashup is a web page or application that uses and combines data, presentation or functionality from two or more sources to create new services.”There are many uses of the phrase “Mashups” in popular culture. I first heard the mainstream use of Mashups in an episode of Glee. Glee used Mashups (Remix) to describe two songs there were put together to form one song. I even saw a commercial for a Mashup of two different Razor Scooter’s to from a hybrid version called the Siege Caster Scooter.
  • Blackboard’s definition of Mashups: “Mashups allow Instructors to add content to a Course that is from an external Web site. This content is used in a variety of ways within a Course: a standalone piece of Course Content, part of a test question, a topic on a Discussion Board, or as part of an assignment.”Blackboard recognizes the value of Web 2.0 services and makes an attempt to incorporate these tools into the online learning environment. Most Web 2.0 services are free and relatively easy to use. With Web 2.0, for the first time, consumers of the media are also able to become producers. Among all the different types of media available, there are valuable educational possibilities created and ready to use in your online course.
  • The default Mashups that are included with Blackboard Learn are all free Web 2.0 services. Blackboard Learn supports adding content from the following sources:Flickr: a site for viewing and sharing photographic images.Slideshare: a site for viewing and sharing PowerPoint presentations, Word documents, or Adobe PDF Portfolios.YouTube: for viewing and sharing online videos.
  • A Mashupis used in a variety of ways within a Course: a standalone piece of Course Content, part of a test question, a topic on a Discussion Board, or as part of an assignment. Additionally, students can add mashups anywhere the Text Editor is available to themMashups are displayed in the following ways:Embed: The Mashup displays directly on the page when a student opens the item.Thumbnail View with Player: A small picture of the Mashup displays on the page with controls to launch it.Text Link with Player: A link to the Mashup is displayed on the page. Students click the link to launch the Mashup.
  • Mashups make it easy to Incorporate rich media content into Course Content, Discussions and Assignment.Control the page content by adding relevant material to the lesson materialReaches different Learning Styles by adding audio and video elements to lessons.
  • There are a few considerations before adding a Mashup to your online course:Copyright - If you are using a Mashup, make sure the Mashup is a public and not a private item. When using third Mashup always check that the Mashup is able to be used under copyright. The validity of Mashups – Review the item before you post it in your course. Make sure the content is from a creditable source.Mashup Accessible – Make sure your Mashup is accessible to students with disabilities. Ensure that images are described with an alt tag HTML element, Video have closed captioning, and Slides have instructor notes if audio is used.Link still current – Check back frequently as Mashups might be moved, changed or deleted.
  • Seven Principles of Good Practice ( GTPs).These highly influential principles, which are the seminal work in the field of effective teaching, consist of the following:Background: The "seven principles of good practice in undergraduate education," originally framed by Arthur Chickering and Zelda Gamson in 1986, is a concise summary of decades of educational research findings about the kinds of teaching/learning activities most likely to improve learning outcomes.Encourages contact between students and faculty – Adding to Learning Modules or ContentDevelops reciprocity and cooperation among students – use in discussions
