## “whiteboard screencasting” and “lecture capture” apps: please enter your choices and suggestions

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 24th October 2013

Greg Jorgensen emailed us with his new darling:

and raises a very good question:

What do we know and how do we organize our tools and apps for whiteboard screencasting and lecture capture?

### Screencasthttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screencast

Greg’s choice of the day is atop of a list from the Ed Tech/y and Mobile Learning web site:

next on that top-6-list are

Teach

Doceri (http://doceri.com/) is a very promissing app, which Bob Lessinger was pushing to be installed on campuos computers (being free), but it is ONLY iPAD-bound (not even iPHone or iTouch)
In addition to Doceri: Stage : Interactive Whiteboard and Document Camera and Splashtop Whiteboard per: 3 Apps to Turn Your iPad into Interactive Whiteboard ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Here is a neat table about the compatibility (iOS and Android) for several of these apps:

Here is another good resource from Alaska. The screencasting apps reviewed are the same as above, but other good sources regarding a pedagogy involving the technology.

## blended learning: outcomes, assessment, etc.

## ECAR STUDY OF UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY, 2013

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 8th October 2013

## Key Findings

See the 2013 report for a full list of key messages, findings, and supporting data.

• Students recognize the value of technology but still need guidance when it comes to better using it for academics.
• Students prefer blended learning environments while beginning to experiment with MOOCs.
• Students are ready to use their mobile devices more for academics, and they look to institutions and instructors for opportunities and encouragement to do so.
• Students value their privacy, and using technology to connect with them has its limits.
p. 10 students are generally confident in their prepraredness to use technology for course work, but those who are interested in more tech training favor “in calss” guidance over separate training options.

## Online Learning: TUITION AND COMPENSATION FOR ONLINE COURSES

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 17th May 2013

### TUITION AND COMPENSATION FOR ONLINE COURSES

Useful discussion on the Educause Listserv “Blended and Online Learning Constituent Group

http://www.educause.edu/discuss/teaching-and-learning/blended-and-online-learning-constituent-group/tuition-and-compensation-online-courses

Per Ann Hamilton from Penn State and Linda Futch with U of Central FL, it is obvious that compensation varies all across the board.

Steve Covello’s comment most probably will resonate with any faculty, who had taught online.

What are your thoughts as a faculty about how you need to be compensated for teaching online, versus F2F course?

## subtitles screencast coursecapture

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 10th May 2013

Below is informative exchange on how to subtitle course capture (screencast):

Are we talking Camtasia Studio or Relay?

Relay no longer publishes to Flash – it was replaced with MP4 and a “Smart Player” – and the subtitling is stored in an XML file that is dynamically read by the Smart Player.

I can confirm that Studio burns the captions into an MP4, as Steve points out.

Camtasia captioning is burn-in, as far as I know (at least in Mac 2). So I don’t think Flash is an aspect of it unless that is the format you are exporting it as.

Subject: Re: [BLEND-ONLINE] Subtitling Screencasts

Both ScreenFlow (Mac-only) and Camtasia (Mac/Win) support subtitling.  Both are excellent screencast applications but I prefer ScreenFlow because it creates MPEG-4 files whereas Camtasia requires Flash for subtitles and that pretty much rules out mobile.

If these screencastsare made with some other, less expensive apps, I suggest using free, open source apps.  There are many but I prefer Jubler for creating subtitles and Subler for installing them in MPEG-4 files. These are Mac apps.

I’ve recently come across CapScribe which is free to education and plan to look it over carefully.  It looks very promising: http://www.inclusivemedia.ca/services/capscribe.shtml This is also Mac-only.

Hello!

In creating accessible online and blended courses, one of the challenges we
are dealing with is making sure faculty created videos (narrated
PowerPoints, screencasts, etc.) are accessible.  I would love to hear how
others are handling this.  Do you recommend/require that these videos be
closed captioned?  If so, who is responsible for creating the closed
captions?  Do you have staff on campus that do this or is it the faculty
member’s responsibility?  Or do you use a service?  Can you recommend any
software that helps someone easily create closed captions or a service that
can provide this?

Thank you so much,

## SCSU’s First Technology in Teaching and Learning Institute

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 17th April 2013

You are invited to participate in the “First Annual SCSU Technology in Teaching and Learning Summer Institute” co-sponsored by the Center for Continuing Studies, InfoMedia Services and the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.

When?                                 Monday, May 13 – Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Where?                                Miller Center

Space is limited to 75 participants. Registration is required and can be completed at this link:     http://www.eventbrite.com/org/3606333855

The Institute program is available here: http://web.stcloudstate.edu/informedia/cetl/tech_institute_schedule.docx

Participants are eligible for incentive awards to support their teaching with technology. Please see the attachment, “participant incentives.”

The goal of the SCSU Technology in Teaching and Learning Summer Institute and its follow-up sessions is to provide high quality and effective pedagogical strategies, skills and discussions around the use of technology for teaching and learning in online, face-to-face and blended courses.  This Institute is part of our on-going varied and collaborative efforts to foster a professional peer learning climate around teaching and learning with technology.

Participants who attend all sessions on both days including the follow-ups and complete all evaluations will have the opportunity to use their self-assessment of current skills and knowledge of technology and select sessions in order to:

•             Acquire basic and advanced skills in using the current Learning Management System, i.e. D2L

•             Distinguish the appropriate use of pedagogical strategies with technology in online, face-to-face and blended settings

•             Explore opportunities to improve student learning through application of e-conferencing tools (e.g. Adobe Connect), and Web 2.0 tools such as social media, etc.

•             Meet and interact with faculty and staff experts and mentors and learn the processes by which they can get additional and on-going support for each of the above areas.

Please register no later than Wednesday May 8.

“Full-time faculty and full-time professional staff with teaching responsibilities who participate in both days of the “Summer Institute” and complete the evaluations will be rewarded with a $300 coupon for a one-time purchase of material that directly supports teaching with technology at the SCSU Computer Store in the Miller Center. Faculty who participate in one of the two days will receive a$150 coupon for the same purpose. Coupons are not transferable.

Please remember that the items purchased remain the property of SCSU but may be used by the purchaser to support their teaching and related academic activities.

Upon completion of the “Summer Institute” participants will be contacted by the SCSU Online Office to verify level of participation in the institute and verify eligibility for funds. These funds must be spent by June 15, 2013.”

Clarification on Presenters Registration

1. Presenters do not have to register unless they want to attend both days.
2. If presenters are not going to participate in sessions other than the one(s) they are presenting but want to eat lunch with us on either day please contact me directly so we can add you to the lunch count and identify any dietary needs
