Student Interaction Talk

On November 17, 2005 I gave a talk "Using Blogs, Podcasts, Screencasts and Games to Enhance Student Interaction" to a group of students at the College of Media Arts and Design at Drexel. Just some reflections about how interaction on every level is changing with technology.

Here is the screencast mp3 podcast and Powerpoint of my talk.

RSS club meeting 17

I had two blog posts to discuss: one on Google Creative Commons Search and another on how the availability of high quality university screencasts and webcasts on the open web.

We had a special guest on conference call from the UK, Jennifer Pearce from NETLinc. She has been learning to use screencasts using Camtasia to deliver information to teachers and students in Lincolnshire.

The others were mainly from the library: Jay Bhatt, Peggy Dominy and Tim Siftar. We talked about Creative Commons, iTunes and related technologies. I also briefly introduced the work I am doing with the UsefulChem project and how it is possible to merge teaching and research is some useful ways. More on this shortly in my main blog.

RSS club meeting 16

I had two blog posts to discuss: one on Blogsearch at Google and another on an update of my CHEM 241 class using lecture archives.

We learned a bit more about what the School of Education at Drexel will be doing with podcasting and how to format their RSS feeds to conform to the iTunes standard.

Lisa updated us on the blog that she created 2 weeks ago at a previous RSS club meeting. After some discussion, we set up a wiki to see if that fits her needs a bit better for sharing information about addiction research. We'll see how that goes at the next meeting hopefully.
