This workshop will cover many of the possible video systems that may be used during a COVID-19 shutdown. Some of the video approaches we will cover include: Zoom (meetings, synchronous online teaching), Record/Upload Media (Canvas content editor), Canvas Studio (within Canvas), cellphone video (for video creation that can be stored on Canvas), and brief mention of other personalized forms (Skype, Facetime, etc.). A goal of the workshop is to ask participants to consider what the purposes of their video use are.

Teaching Talks (every Tuesday, 12-1 on Zoom)

Join us every Tuesday from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. for a focus on teaching in the realm of Canvas and distance education. These Zoom sessions are unstructured, without a set agenda. We might focus on a current challenge in your Canvas class. We might address a “how to” in terms of a Canvas feature. Or, we might just reflect on how our Spring classes are going. A little self-help and emotional support might also be in order. Attend when you can and join the virtual gathering! Talk Teaching on Zoom! Please connect with Scott to get the Zoom invite.
