DATE: May 17, 2011
TIME: 12:15PM - 1:45PM
LOCATION: Starr Instructional Center (Jones)
INSTRUCTORS: Amanda Albright, JoAnn Gonzalez-Major, Susan Simon
BONUS - Other tools of potential use for creating online learning materials...a brief, whirldwind tour of some possibilities you may not have considered.
In preparation for the hands-on piece of the session, please think about a (very) familiar topic/skill that you can work into a 1 - 2 minute instructional screencast. Yes, you will be able to do this. The important thing about the topic is that it be small (easy to cover in 1 - 2 minutes) and something you are very comfortable with. Some suggestions are: working with one specific facet in summon (or some other database of your choice), finding a specific address in Google Maps, navigating to the "name your subject" Research Guide, finding the "Dartmouth Channel" on YouTube, doing a known author search in the library catalog...you get the idea, something that you know well (so you can focus on the process and not so much on the content) and reasonable to cover in a brief 1 - 2 minute tutorial.
