This project seeks to provide an opportunity for instructors to share their online teaching successes with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln community. Each technique will consist of a 3-5 minute screen recording to help other online instructors learn how to get started using the technique you share. Additional files and links may be included.
Identify a technique in your online course that has worked well for you and your students. If it uses technology, please stick with ones that are university-supported. Locate a clear example in your course that you are comfortable sharing with others and follow the format below to provide your example as a resource for other instructors.
Your presentation will generally follow a “what, why, how” format where you share what you do, why you do it, and how others can implement it. Spend a few moments considering how you want to communicate your “what, why, how” information. Maybe you have a story behind this resource that details why you tried it, where you got the idea from, and how well it has worked in your course. If you do have a wider story around the technique the story could be a powerful way to share your “what, why, how” information.
The objective of this project is to provide a three to five-minute MP4 video where you introduce yourself briefly (your name, what department you work in) and provide the “what, how, why” of a technique in your online course. Ideally, you will use a screen recorder, such as VidGrid, as a means to describe and show your technique. Using a presentation application such as Powerpoint or Keynote is optional, as is turning on your webcam.
