26 quick tips for #teachers using Twitter - Daily Genius

26 quick tips for #teachers using Twitter - Daily Genius | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Whether you’re new to the Twitter game or a seasoned pro, there’s always something to learn. Teachers know that better than anyone. Learning is a lifelong process and figuring out social media is no different. I was pretty excited to come across this handy chart of quick tips for teachers using Twitter because it showcases the A-to-Z tips which will help you get off to a good start. Literally. It’s an A-to-Z walkthrough. Pretty good.

 

In this graphic from Fedena (a school management software maker), you’ll likely spot more than a few tips you already know. However, you should be able to discover a couple new ones that will help you up your Twitter game. For example, I really like the second tip on how to properly use Twitter. There’s certainly a level of etiquette you should follow. Don’t be spammy. Don’t over-tweet or overshare, and don’t take credit for someone else’s work. That’s a super handy tip to always keep int he back of your mind whether you’re talking about social media or just life in general!"

How To Easily Create ELearning Videos from Microsoft PowerPoint

How To Easily Create ELearning Videos from Microsoft PowerPoint | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"there are many ways you can integrate PowerPoint into any elearning program. It can be a simple PDF that someone interacts with, or you could use a program like Articulate Presenter to transform that presentation into an interactive, online asset. But what if you just need something “in between”? You don’t have the resources to invest in a program like Articulate, but you want more from your presentation than a rather static PDF.

 

Well, one possible option is to record yourself giving the presentation. Using a free tool like Screencast-o-Matic allows you to record your screen and then instantly save the video locally or upload to a platform like YouTube."

First the question comes, why do we need videos in an eLearning course? A video is shot once and can be used in a million other ways. A single video can be translated into other languages; the great thing about videos is that it has a cross-culture appeal and can have one or varied audiences at the same time.
