Animated Presentations

In a recently run online course, students were given the option to introduce themselves and answer a couple ice-breaker questions, in any way they chose. This learner opted to create an animated introduction video to say hello to her peers, illustrate her professional environment, and answer the prompts.

Course Introductions & Mini Lectures

Professor Diane Aschenbrenner created this course introduction video to orient students to the online course platform. In under 5 minutes her students were introduced to the major assignments, the flow and layout of the online course and they learned of her psecific procedures in the online course. They also received clear instruction on what to do next.

Audio Recordings & Podcasts

In our course on Spirituality & Nursing, students are introduced to meditation and other ways of practicing self care. Meditation and relaxation practices are useful for medical health practitioners. After experiencing this guided visualization, students discuss how they feel emotionally and physically—in a group discussion session.

Screencast: email wall of shame
Flip the Classroom

Recently, one of our faculty opted to convert some print materials to multimedia. In the module on professional writing, students view the video at home and then apply their findings to in-class activities; rather than read this information in class on a few sheets of printed paper. This updated version of "Email Basics" is simply a screencast that features voice-over narration, and it's highly effective.
