eduCanon: interactive video. unleashed. | EAD | Scoop.it

The eduCanon platform is a tool for teachers to build lessons with interactive timed questions and engaging video content. Already, we've been amazed by the creative and inspirational uses of eduCanon by teachers--for flipped and blended learning environments.

Leda's insight:

Reminds me of TEdED, but seems to be easier to organize and more geared towards tracking progress. They warn us it may not be always free (and you may lose access to content created unless you pay)

Hey! Ben from eduCanon. Love all the great reactions! I wanted to follow up and let everyone know that I was a teacher and know the need to be upfront: eduCanon's current functionality will ALWAYS be free :) We're building out premium features, but that will never restrict you from your current uses/content! Also thought I'd throw out a little about what we've recently released:<br><br>1. You can now use videos from YouTube, Vimeo, and TeacherTube!<br><br>2. We have free response (open-ended) questions in our premium version, as well as gradebook export, and lesson search through the eduCanon database.

Online Teaching Jobs: May 2014 - The Babb Group

Online Teaching Jobs: May 2014 - The Babb Group | EAD | Scoop.it

By Dani Babb: 21 Things You Should Include On Your CV

...A CV is the academic resume you should be submitting to job applications, whether online or by email. Essentially a CV is very long, very detailed resume that is used for academic purposes. The online education market and job search is more competitive than ever. The more detailed your CV, I have found the greater the chances you will land your first (or fifth) online teaching position.

Emma Stutzman's curator insight, January 3, 2014 2:03 PM

This picture shows how social media has developed over the years. It mentions how many people thought that social media was started with facebook, when in reality it was really started by other projects that you can see above. This picture/concept shows the differences between which sites took off and which didn't, depending on our cultural preferences.
