Ideas for online edu

  1. 1. Videos, textbook websites, online textbooks, presentations<br />Ideas and demonstrations in online education<br />
  2. 2. Questions:<br />How many of you teach a hybrid class? <br />How many of you teach a totally online class?<br />How many of you are seriously considering a hybrid or online class?<br />
  3. 3. Online modes: <br />When giving assignments or communicating in a partial or totally online environment we have three main modes:<br />1) Text<br />2) Audio<br />3) Video<br />
  4. 4. Synchronous environments: <br />What is synchronous? <br />Advantages: Get an in-class feel in an online environment due to communication and interaction with the teacher and other classmates, immediate answers to questions or misunderstandings.<br />Disadvantages: Technology, some students like to remain as distant as possible and therefore do not like the one-on-one interaction, restricted to a specific time/day to meet.<br />
  5. 5. How can we communicate using text, audio, video in a synchronous environment?<br />Text (chat, forum) <br />Audio (Skype, Elluminate, Wiz iq)<br />Video (Skype, Wiz iq,Elluminate)<br />Elluminate<br />Student link<br />
  6. 6. What is asynchronous?<br />Advantages: Work at your own pace, convenience.<br />Disadvantages: Communication can be limited among classmates, time to ask/answer questions can be long, feeling of disconnect due to a lack of interaction.<br />
  7. 7. How can we communicate using text, audio and video in an asynchronous environment?<br />text (discussion boards, blackboard, nabble)<br />audio (recordings teachertube, individual files that students must upload to their computer)<br />video (youtube, Blackhawk, jing, camtasia), ppts (slideshare) <br />
  8. 8. So what do we choose?<br />If you teach a hybrid class the answer is probably in class with asynchronous material.<br />But what if you are teaching a totally online course? <br />Should all of the course be synchronous or asynchronous?<br />
  9. 9. How can we pull all of these things together?<br />What are the advantages of blackboard?<br />What are the disadvantages?<br />How do we pull all of these resources and tools to our Blackboard?<br />
  10. 10. Would you like to be able to put a website within your blackboard?<br />Find a box with the words HTML on it or select the button with <> then paste the following below in the box.<br /><iframesrc=<br />"copy and paste the site address here" name=<br />"" width="1000" height="800" id="">content if<br />browser does not support</iframe> <br />
  11. 11. How many of you would like to use videos from youtube or hulu on your blackboard?<br />find a video that you would like to use… to the side of it you should find a box that says embed and in that box is a bunch of code. Copy that code and put it in your HTML <> box. <br />
  12. 12. Aside from Blackboard:<br />There is officelive. (a free product by Microsoft that allows you to make your own website.) <br />See example: Mr. Reynolds’ classes<br />
  13. 13. Q & A<br />Do you have any questions or would you like to see more examples?<br />An online classroom perhaps?<br />
