9X9X25 Challenge, Extender Blogs, North Cohort, West Cohort

Will you accept the challenge? Calling all #9x9x25 video creators!

Yesterday two key things happened: I made a challenge and accepted it. The Presentation Jeff, Jess, and I hosted a professional development double-dip that turned into more of a unique presentation to faculty than we thought. In preparation for Online Learning 2018, we piloted a 15 minute Easy DIY Video Success Strategies session for faculty. After the session, we sought faculty feedback and re-designed the session. It was a happy coincidence that this session was also a perfect follow up for […]

Open Media: Using audio and video as part of open teaching practice with @Cambrian_Jess @hj_dewaard and @eCampusOntario #OEFellow

Today I was excited to be part of the first of five webinars by eCampusOntario’s Open Fellows. It was exciting to see so many people engaged in the chat! They were so engaged I couldn’t keep up. We hope that we have inspired our audience to give audio or video a try in their teaching. We all believe that the use of audio or video helps to meet the needs of learners, makes you seem human and helps to build […]

Family Fun on @YouTube for #Kids #KidFriendly #YouTubeKids #KidsYouTube

My kids wanted to start a YouTube channel. We agreed, after all: Why not? They are learning to be confident, creative, and developing presentation skills among other things. They will keep picking up more skills as they try new things with our help. They couldn’t quite agree on one focus so we ended up with two family channels: Flexible Fun and Froggy Fun House. We wanted to start one … but Jennifer and Mike insisted on having their own. Flexible Fun […]

How @YouTube can Expand Presentation Opportunities: Looking Back to #FoL18 with @draggin and @jozbfz

I was updating my CV and realized I had not blogged about the amazing experience I had presenting virtually at the BC Festival of learning. What a shame! Tweets just aren’t enough to express my gratitude for this experience. It was a great experience. I recommend it. Thanks for attending and including me in the #FoL18 discussion. https://t.co/D2oVul7ZCC — Laura Killam (@NurseKillam) May 31, 2018   My co-presenters Jason Toal and Jon Fulton made this possible.

Creative uses of YouTube: Discussing ways to make Video Work #AdvLearn2018

At Advancing Learning, I was able to connect with educators interested in leveraging video in their classroom. This presentation was more discussion based than the last one. Today I briefly introduced myself and answered questions of the audience using the website below as a reference. Presentation: Click Here.

Creating Connections For Learning Through YouTube

@NurseKillam and @JessicaOReill17 on using video in instruction #CNIE2018Sudbury pic.twitter.com/yFTzIchnbr — Diane P. Janes, PhD (@Diane_Janes) May 16, 2018 Jessica and I presented about ways YouTube can be used in education to enhance student learning. We heard from the audience and even live streamed the session with the support of Extron Electronics (an event sponsor). The “slides” are actually a website, which is designed to be an open resource that I will continue to add to. We encourage you to […]

Frustrations with my first #OER YouTube video … I will be open – maybe – If YouTube lets me?

Armed with years of YouTube video-making experience, open videos on YouTube that I wanted to adapt in the spirit of openness, and a passion for open educational resources (OER) I set out to make my first CC BY licensed YouTube video. Today I reflect on the challenges I experienced as I put together the video below … and realized that my video might not actually be as open as I wanted it to be on YouTube.   In a previous […]

Creating, Finding and Using OERs #OER #OpenEdMOOC

In order to be open it is critical that educators have the skills to find and use Creative Commons licensed materials so they do not infringe on Copyright. Open Educational Resources (OER) are really not all that different than what I normally create – the only difference is the licensing. CreativeCommons licenses types and licensing from Marius My resource curation for learning to date has occurred primarily inside of the learning management systems at intuitions where I have taught and […]

What is Open Education #OpenEdMOOC

Today’s MOOC experience is really challenging my reflective brain as so many questions are being raised about open education. As expressed in previous posts I share a core value with the open education community, but today I am struggling to fit Wiley’s (2015) definition of open with my reality. Below is an honest reflection on the open education movement as I consider if I can be on the cutting edge of this movement in Ontario. Open is not Free Open […]

Exploring my YouTube Copyright #OpenEdMOOC

In week 2 of a course I am navigating at my own procrastinator’s pace we have been asked to consider Copyright, the Public Domain and the Commons. I am actually really excited to delve into this week’s content because it is a critical think to understand as a content creator. Lawyers, Librarians and Educators please jump in and comment on this post to help me get my head around this issue. Copyright I live in Canada. Since the MOOC I […]
