This looks like a great tool for getting students to work collaboratively. Let's hope that Google can be trusted to continue to support it.

Greg Quinlivan's curator insight, January 5, 2017 9:38 PM
It might also be a place for online teachers to create a space for each of their students or small groups to interact, get feedback, etc. Of course, the one issue is the blocking of Google by certain countries, including the PRC unfortunately.

How to Record Simple Screencasts on iOS and Android

How to Record Simple Screencasts on iOS and Android | Language learning and technology | Scoop.it
For those of us who want to record our gaming exploits, demo an app for the wider world to see, or email a tutorial to mom and dad through the wonder of video, it’s fortunate that recording screencasts is no longer the exclusive preserve of devs and serious coders. Whatever platform your smartphone (or tablet) runs, you can record on-screen activity without too much trouble.

Le screencast iOS est gratuit sur Mac via QuickTime. Sur Windows, une application tierce (et payante) est nécessaire. 

En revanche, le screencast Android est plus facile via l'application  YouTube Gaming (gratuite).

You may not have heard about it yet, but the British Council has created the Aptis test, an online language test which helps students and teachers to measure the level of their English.

  I work with many beginning online teachers who are struggling to get started actually teaching online. UDEMY is one way to create your own opportunities as you develop real world experience. 


Building a free course is a way to also build your credibility and expand your network. Developing a course and charging a fee is a way to make money teaching online. 


Either path will teach you a lot about instructional design, video and audio production, and social media marketing. 


So why not add a UDEMY course to your resume and gain some experience while you are applying for online jobs?
