Acclaim

Acclaim | technologies | Scoop.it
Acclaim facilitates constructive, educational discussions and feedback around video content.
John Dalziel's insight:

Acclaim is a web presence for practitioners facilitating discussion around video content.
It allows learners and practitioners to share questions, notes, and feedback by inserting time-specific comments that link to moments in each video.
Each comment is clickable, and once clicked, the video will jump to the specific moment that is being discussed.
Learners can see and respond to comments from their practitioner and peers at any time.
Users add videos to Acclaim in one of three different ways:
   - By embedding YouTube or Vimeo clips;
   - By uploading video files stored on a hard drive or mobile device; and/or
   - By using the built-in webcam feature to create and upload a video in real time.
Acclaim promotes learner engagement by encouraging discussion in a responsive and asynchronous format.
Using Acclaim as part of a flipped learning model, practitioners could...

   - assign video content for viewing as homework, and ask learners to share their thoughts and insights in the form of discussions with fellow classmates.
OR
   - in performance based-courses, such as dance, public speaking, and trial law, learners may record themselves using the webcam feature, and receive precise feedback from their practitioners and peers about areas of excellence, as well as points for improvement.
Acclaim hones critical thinking, listening, analytical and observational skills.
Acclaim also has built in privacy management, which can be reassuring to learners with anxiety about their performance or concerns about public critique.
Users can create secure folders based around course units and assignments, then grant access to specific learners or peers on a limited basis.

Ken Morrison's comment, August 1, 2012 8:11 AM
This is a very nice blog. I remember when teachers were excited about the idea of giving everyone a $xx.xx clicker so that we could record everyones multiple choice 'opinion'. If used wisely, Twitter is a much better use of the same concept. I like some of the other opinions as well. Specifically, I like the idea that it connects students in new ways to network and learn answers together outside of class.
