Activity: Developing e-learning - re-using learning materials
(A full version of this will be released under the Designing and Planning Teaching heading. This is a taster, with the focus on video material)
This activity asks you to consider whether and how you might use teaching materials that have been developed elsewhere. Existing video material is used as an example.
There are many sources of video material that you can use in your teaching. The UKOER (Open Educational Resources) programme and the US Open Courseware movement have created a large amount of material. In the UK, this can be found in Jorum - http://www.jorum.ac.uk/ and in institutional repositories, such as OpenLearn - http://openlearn.open.ac.uk/.
and individual academics also publish video material via proprietary
systems, such as iTunesU and YouTubeEdu:
This is a link to a short video recording about using technologies in teaching and learning: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPRUJBGqE8c
- Watch this recording. Then find another YouTube video on e-learning and watch that. Write a short critique of one of these resources. The critique should be no more than 150 words and you should also provide a link to the video.
- Now find a video recording that might be suitable for students in your own discipline. Think about how you could use it and write down these ideas.
- Finally try to list potential benefits and dangers of using video from sources external to your institution, such as YouTube
