Before I talk about some of the ways in which you can encourage student engagement with videos in your Canvas course, let’s talk just a bit about some video recording options as well.
This afternoon, we'll be facilitating a session on active learning to engage your students with their peers and with the content in meaningful ways. In the meantime, here's a great Faculty Focus article, "Enhancing Student Engagement & Interaction with Online Digital Tools."
This one is a little bit of a Base Camp refresher - how to find free music for your projects!
This week, we offered the "Organizing Your Lesson with Google Slides," looking at the many features of Google Slides that makes it an ideal "container" for all the components - instructional content and activities - of your lesson.
If you missed the LOL session, you can still get the info by watching the video below. And if you DID attend, be sure to watch through to the end - I added a 4 minute segment to answer the question about shortening those annoyingly long URLs!
