Video Sharing In The Online Classroom Video Sharing In The Online Classroom Presentation Transcript

  • Video Sharing in the Online Classroom
    Bernard Bull & Matt Stenson
  • Introduction
    E-learning literature is rich with examples of text-based approaches to teaching and learning.
    Current and emerging technologies afford opportunity to explore multimedia mashups in the e-learning environment.
    Growing desire among faculty for ways to share and receive video and audio.
  • Four Key Questions
    How can one use existing online discussion tools to integrate video prompts and other forms of multimedia interaction?
    How can one more easily facilitate student-centered multimedia projects in the online classroom?
    To what extent is it possible to enable all participants in a given e-learning course to communicate via text, audio, video or a combination of the three?
    Is there E-Learning potential for video sharing environments like YouTube. 
  • What Makes this Possible?
  • HTML Tags in the LMS
  • Content Creation Tools
    Windows Movie Maker
    Built in webcam recording software
    Photostory 3
  • Media Sharing Services
  • Mashups
  • What Makes this Possible?
  • YouTube

  • The Mediawire (CU-Tube) ProjectWe could have used YouTube, but we wanted control, security, and integration
    Must have an authentication protocol that integrates with active directory
    Individual students/faculty can create videos with a tool of their choice and easily upload it to the video sharing service
    Automatic conversion to Flash with option for MP4
    Automatic creation of three ways to share (download link, direct play link, embed tag)
    Users can create a password for each individual video
  • MediaWire Demo
  • Version 2.0
    Vodcasting (RSS)
    Better UI (fewer clicks to complete tasks)
    Refining security and the backend video conversion process
  • Version 2.0
  • Three Levels of Implementation
  • Usage Examples
    • Media embedded into what were primarily text-based interactions
    • Video prompts at beginning, middle, and end of threaded discussions
    • Video case studies
    • Interviews with guest experts
    • Digital stories as discussion prompts
    • Sending password-protected media outside of the LMS
    • Easy submission of student projects for instructor feedback or peer review – no upload download within the LMS
  • Challenges
    Digital Divide – danger of isolating students by adding multimedia components
    Current tool allows for potential misuse of the service
  • Conclusions
    The evident convergence of new and old media along with the rapid increase in mashup technologies affords us with potentially powerful ways to expand e-learning interactions to include more immediate and flexible uses of text, hypertext, audio, video, and images.
