Introduction to Screencast-o-Matic, Flipgrid, and Vimeo to create video tutorials
Learn and Teach with Moodle
Learn to navigate a Moodle course, use the rich editor, and record audio and video using PoodLL and the recorder, navigate and update personal Moodle profile, and post to the online discussion forums.
Discuss the meaning of student engagement and brainstorm ideas for collaborative lessons and projects.
Team formation for team peer learning
Choose a course topic for the collaborative course.
Create a video tutorial demonstrating how to record your voice using audio and video from the editor as you do it directly from the editor (see the image below).
Notice the editor has more than one recorder. In order to see the full editor click on the arrow pointing down. It's on the top left hand side of the editor.
Use my Screencast-o-matic organization account to create a video tutorial demonstrating how a student can speak straight from the editor in a Moodle
course, or use Vimeo screen recorder (Chrome with extension or not), or Awesome Screenshot on Chrome extension
or Flipgrid screen recorder.
Share your experience in using the tools and screencast-o-matic and remember to respond to one other or more participants.
