Software for Adding Some Digital to Your Classroom | GradHacker

Software for Adding Some Digital to Your Classroom | GradHacker | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

Let's say that you have decided to teach an online course or incorporate digital components into your classroom, your syllabus is solid, and you have written a comprehensive technology policy for your students. The next step in digitizing your undergraduate course is figuring out how to turn your amazing ideas into reality.

Becky Roehrs's insight:

I like Snagit vs Jing, since I like the screen shot markup better and you can create videos you can upload to YouTube (any length vs 5 min). You can't upload Jing videos to YouTube. I also like Screen-Cast-O-Matic to create quick videos (max of 15 min). With Screen-Cast-O-Matic, you can create screen casts or webcam videos or picture-in-picture screencasts.

Six Ingredients for Sweetening your Flipped Classroom Recipe | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it
There are as many ways to flip your class as there are ways to build a pizza. You need some key ingredients, like a good lesson, some editing software or an iPad with some recording apps, and time.
Becky Roehrs's insight:

Lots of good tips about how to use various tools such as Snagit, Sketchbook Express, Knowmia, Explain Everything, Plus Edmodo. On the other hand, Camtasia takes a lot of time to learn how to use and $100 for A microphone is way Out of my budget.

The Best Cheaper Alternatives to Photoshop

The Best Cheaper Alternatives to Photoshop | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it
Adobe Photoshop is the professional image editor. It’s name is now a verb for image editing (which is something that Adobe absolutely hates). Photoshop though, isn’t the only editor in town. Over the last few years, new image editing apps have come along that are almost as good as Photoshop, for a fraction of the price. Let’s have a look at some of them.
Becky Roehrs's insight:

 GIMP is their suggestion (free, open source and also works with Linux), I've used Adobe Elements in the past (much cheaper and easier to use than Adobe Photoshop) , Irfanview (free for non-commerical use) , and when not saving for the web, I use Snagit.
