9 Apps for Creating Multimedia Content

9 Apps for Creating Multimedia Content | Best Practices for Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Until a few years ago designing an attractive presentation, or any other form of multimedia content, required expert designers. You first had to explain your idea to the designer who would then spend hours in isolation, using complex tools and software, to turn them into reality. Most of the times, however, you would still go away dissatisfied with the final product.

 

However, this is no more the case thanks to different online tools available freely on the internet. Using these tools,you can create multimedia content in a matter of minutes. You no longer need to explain your brains out to a designer who would still prefer following his own ideas. There’s also no need for any complex applications and prior designing knowledge.

Opportunities to Enhance Online Discussions and Collaboration Using Google Hangouts | NWP Digital Is

Opportunities to Enhance Online Discussions and Collaboration Using Google Hangouts | NWP Digital Is | Best Practices for Online Teaching | Scoop.it

I believe that there is a subtle art to effectively facilitating and assessing an online discussion. To build this necessary skill in students we have a weekly discussion in either Google Groups, Google+ Communities, or Edmodo. Each teacher in the class takes turns acting as a "Discussion Director" (DD) and they run the discussion for the week. It is their responsibility to read ahead, develop a series of prompts and a plan of attack to facilitate the discussion, guide and extend the discussion, and finally assess their peers using our rubric. I give the DD a lot of latitude in terms of how they facilitate the discussion for the week.
