Reasons for using video in online classes

1.  Professors can post videos on the website, but most students don't have access to the coding to post a video in their discussion responses.
Remedy:  Students can add visual activity to their posts with links to youtube videos that they have created.

2.   Sometimes a past lecture is not available any longer (possibly because the storage space for videos is limited).  REMEDY:  Post a past video on youtube and the video will be available.

I would like to see what I can do to catch up and I'd like to propose a final project (from Class Session 4) that would describe how to effectively use Youtube in the Distance Learning Environment.

Lost videos about CS1 and CS2 – I noticed that the course content of my Blackboard is 90% used, which might be why I can't find Class Sessions 1 and 2. Is it possible to get those two items back in my course content folder?

Hi Steve,

CS1 was presented in Wimba. To view the archive, click on the "Wimba Live Classroom" link from the menu to the left. In this session you will learn all sorts of useful things about the course, including the discussion moderation process.

CS2--at least last term's CS2--can be viewed at: be a good idea to give me a call.

CONCLUSION:  it is sometimes easier to have an outside storage place for videos.
