Date: Wednesday, October 14
Time: noon – 1:00 p.m.
Location: Bostock Library – The Edge Workshop Room (first floor)

In the last 3 decades, teachers have moved from the 4 walls of the classroom to the infinite possibilities of the Internet. With ten plus years of online video in the making, training resources using rich media reside everywhere – YouTube, Vimeo, Open Education Resources, lecture-capture inside an LMS, and 3rd party rich media libraries. These resources are becoming fully integrated in the learning space and a matter of choice for the student. As well as this rapid adoption of this technology, witness what we have learned about how online video changes and enhances the way we learn. A great online video structures learning around meaning, presents the big picture of the subject matter, and supports it with granular details and steps. Learn “how we learn with video” and about the factors that effect our learning: Audio & Video “best practices”, Transcripts and/or closed captioning, Repetition and failure in privacy, The Player & Playback controls, Simplicity, choice, accessibility, usability In user-centered experience design, The rewards of anywhere, anytime video learning, and Personalization & customization – enhanced learning by choice. Online video is a powerful tool for extending teaching methodologies and engaging the learner.
