Presenters: Natasha Boskic, Educational Technology Manager, External Programs and Learning Technologies, Faculty of Education
Sharon Hu, Instructional Designer, External Programs and Learning Technologies, Faculty of Education
Description: Audio and video are almost universally accepted as offering richness and increased inclusivity in education. Recent innovations in telecommunications technologies have lowered equipment and transmission costs, making audio and video part of everyday experience.
The External Programs and Learning Technologies (EPLT) provides a variety of ways to incorporate audio and video into the curriculum, as well as introduces the students to using them as learning tools, for example:
- Short audio or video clips with instructor’s welcoming message or instructions about the assignments add human element to an online course.
- Voice discussion forums address those who prefer verbal expression to written communication.
- Real time web conferencing creates a valuable space for Q and A sessions.
- Students’ video assignments make the task connected to real life events and processes.
The poster will offer a number of examples of using multimedia in education.
