7 Important Traits of a Great Mobile Learning App

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 22nd October 2013

http://blogs.kqed.org/mindshift/2010/12/7-important-traits-of-a-great-mobile-learning-app/

The best learning apps have the following attributes:

1) They’re interactive. Touchscreens beg for touching.

2) They’re designed for shorter playtimes.

3) They’re focused narrowly by age and relevant to what they’re learning and their motor skills.

4) They’re fun, engaging children by making them laugh — but too too much.

5) They’re inter-generational, allowing a way to involve parents.

6) They’re modifiable, giving kids options to personalize.

7) They have built-in goals, to keep kids coming back with incentives.

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.

Blended Learning Course Design: A Boot Camp for Instructors

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 20th June 2013

Blended Learning Course Design: A Boot Camp for Instructors
http://bit.ly/12V6NzN

Madison, WI
July 29 – 30, 2013

This intensive two-day workshop offers one-to-one instruction and consultation from top innovators in blended learning. It’s a hands-on, working workshop. You bring a syllabus, exams, other course materials, and a computer. You leave with an action plan for a blended course that will keep you on the cutting edge of pedagogy.

Through this process, you will:

– Take one of your existing face-to-face courses and convert it into a blended format
– Feel comfortable and confident with the technology so that IT becomes an aid rather than a barrier to communicating with your students
– Learn the most pedagogically effective ways to blend instructional technology, course content, and course activities to promote interaction of students with each other, the instructor, and the content

You will finish with an understanding of how to balance what happens before class, what happens in class, and what happens after class. You will learn how to organize your own Learning Management System (LMS), and you will be exposed to the very best technology tools to support student learning.

Topics explored during this event include course design principles, pedagogical considerations, technology how-to’s, and student engagement strategies.

Pennsylvania Pumps $633,000 into Hybrid Learning

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,
Andrea
