Kaltura (mediaspace.illinois.edu) is a YouTube-like service that allows U of I people to post and share videos, and you can use it to promote your research, for teaching, or outreach. It's perfect for recording micro-lectures on the fly, or having students submit video assignments. You can publish to the whole Web or limit access, to only U of I people or to members of a specific course. You can upload videos you've already made, or record directly online, and edit your videos online, too. We will cover what you need to know to get started publishing with Kaltura, and follow up with consultation for your specific projects.
This workshop will be online. Here is the link to join: https://us.bbcollab.com/guest/d3e2f4a59d1d4041b324f327223ce88e
Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning
We know that active teaching methods result in better retention and increased satisfaction among students in all disciplines, but recent changes in flexible classroom design are becoming an important part of that dynamic on this campus. From designing new classroom spaces, to designing new courses, our staff is helping to reimagine teaching and learning on this campus—one classroom at a time. Learn more about flexible classrooms.
New technologies offer many options to structure precisely how you and your students communicate. They can give your students greater voice, help you know what your students know, make class time more engaging, increase time-on-task, and provide new ways to present concepts that were previously impossible. The Instructional Spaces & Technology group seeks to raise the awareness and thoughtful use of technologies in the service of teaching and learning across campus.
