Digital technologies and the tensions between research and teaching

Digital technologies and the tensions between research and teaching | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

At Cardiff University, the Digidol team are investigating how what they call "digital literacy" can be embedded in all staff and students across all levels and areas of the university. The project is one of 12 being funded at different institutions by JISC, an expert on information and digital technologies for education and research, and I interviewed members of the team for one of a series of podcasts for the organisation recently.

Zipcast | Easy web meetings for free - from slideshare | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

From the website:

 

"Bring meetings to life with Zipcast, a virtual meeting/presentation tool that lets you connect with anyone, anywhere, in real time. Zipcast runs in a web browser along with phone conferencing and video, so everyone sees the same thing while you talk.

 

"Zipcast allows users to start a virtual meeting from any presentation in SlideShare and present that meeting to an unlimited number of viewers instantly. Present publicly when you want your ideas to spread. Present privately, when it is you and a colleague. Zipcast also comes with group chat and social invitation functions that make it very easy to tweet or post a meeting to Facebook. You can schedule a meeting for the date and time you want and send out an invite.

 

"All SlideShare users can use Zipcast. The PRO user gets additional features, including the ability to set a password for a Zipcast Web meeting, a conference line and making the meeting private."
