Via EDTC@UTB
Mary Starry's insight:

As pharmacy educators, we tend to immediately assume we'll be producing a "knowledge" focused video for flipped classrooms or eLearning. However, there are times when a motivational, how-to, or simulation video would be more appropriate for the content and provide an interesting contrast for the learner.  This short article provides information and examples of the different types of videos you can use to meet your objectives.

6 Ways Color Psychology Can Be Used to Design Effective eLearning | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
Here're some ways in which you can use color when designing eLearning courses by taking physiological and psychological effects into consideration.

Via EDTC@UTB
Mary Starry's insight:

I don't see color used very often on pharmacy webpages or handouts. Maybe we consider our subject matter as too serious to incorporate color.  However, color can help with learning. A key point here is to use bold, not bright!

Mary Starry's insight:

Excellent review article on how a pharmacy school in the UK has truly integrated their curriculum.  Their modules involve faculty truly working as teams to build all the curricular components into activities and cases versus having different disciplines showing up on their different days to teach.  Nice to see how the silo walls can be broken down.

Many of us use YouTube videos as components of assignments or classes. When assigned outside of class, you often wish you could include some of your own comments and thoughts.  This tool allows you to do exactly that: add comments at specific points in the video.
