  13. 13. Ongoing ADF project on video feedback<br />In one example, 50% of students registered on the module viewed the feedback within 24 hours<br />Based on JISC funded ASSET project (http://www.reading.ac.uk/web/FILES/asset/ASSET_final_report.pdf)<br />
  14. 14. Investigating the impact of tablet devices on study behaviour<br />“Participants showed significant increases in use of podcasts during the trial period.”<br />“Revolutionary, this has changed the way I approach a class, I feel totally prepared as, I get the lecture slides without having to print them, take notes , record, reference and if necessary look things up, all in the palm of my hand... WOW”<br />
  15. 15. Lecture capture with Adobe Connect Pro<br />David T: why does it stop potassium?<br />maria: how does it block the channel? with a molecule or via a protein<br />shipoopi: whats a hilock ? <br />xxx: are ipsp's used to prevent unwanted ap's occurring spontaneously or just when an ap is occurring and needs to be stopped?<br />“91% of students like having live ‘chat’ in lectures”<br />“98% of students find recorded lectures useful”<br />
  16. 16. Online learning resources<br />“Students who engaged with online learning resources had significantly higher examination marks.”<br />
  17. 17. “There was a significant increase in the number of students who used Twitter for educational purposes.”<br />Social media for learning<br />“The majority of Twitter users accessed resources using a Smartphone at least once a day.”<br />
  18. 18. ULBERG<br />FACULTY OF BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES<br />Future learning technology projects:<br /><ul><li>Podcasting
  19. 19. Screen-casting
  20. 20. Mobile app development
  21. 21. Wikis for collaborative writing</li></li></ul><li>Podcasts from lectures and research seminars<br />Aims:<br />To increase availability of lecture podcasts<br />To evaluate use and effectiveness of podcasts for student learning<br />To produce a repository of research seminar podcasts for the bioscience community<br />To investigate value of research seminar podcasts in the curriculum<br />Comment from student: “I think this is a brilliant idea, and would find it extremely interesting to listen to research seminars via a podcast. I already listen to podcasts from Harvard, and find them very interesting.”<br />
  22. 22. Anatomy Podcasts and Screencasts:<br />Competition for the textbook...?<br />Alternative resources for learning anatomy in a medium familiar to the students<br /><ul><li> Podcasts downloadable to mp3 players
  23. 23. Screencasts available via VLE for PC viewing and also produced in iPhone format </li></ul>Questions:<br />Effect on assessment; 2) Usage statistics and 3) Effect on student learning experience<br />Trialled this coming semester...........................if successful looking in to producing Smart phone App!!!<br />
  24. 24. Mobile app development<br />
