The TWT FIG held its first meeting on March 28th and April 17th in order to try to accommodate as many interested colleagues as possible. Here is a list of tools we discussed:
Time toast – creates timelines
Timelines can be created to digitally represent a series of historical events as a way to present course content or used as a way to visually illustrate when class assignments, drafts of papers, and quizzes will take place.
Vialogues- use a video and have people discuss it
Students can view an assigned video and add then have an online discuss and comment on the video.
great to use as icebreakers in your class
Edureations- short videos created by users
Educreations allows you to draw and talk and record a short presentation.
We also talked about e-learning at KCC. A townhall meeting is being organized so that the KCC community has the opportunity to discuss online learning at KCC. A report about online learning at KCC and national trends in community college distance education and student success has been written by Dean Cathy Leaker and distributed to the college community. KCC’s plan is to increase the number of hybrid and online courses offered. In addition, the college would like to attract a different audience of students, such as adult learners, by offering an AA Liberal Arts online starting Fall 2019.
