Copyright Simplified

Infographic on Copyright

Maureen came across a great article today on making the complexities of copyright easier to understand. We encourage you to click on the Infographic here to read the article Copyright Flowchart: Can I Use It? Yes? No? If This… Then …

And, speaking of infographics– aren’t they popping up everywhere? Don’t you enjoy using them? Well, they really aren’t difficult to make. Nicole gave us some great resources during iTeach Juneau and iTeach2 Sitka for making your own infographics. Many classroom applications. Why not give it a try?

You might start by using Piktochart and you might want to follow or subscribe to eLearning Infographics, a blog that shows some really interesting eduational infographics. We’d love to see some examples of things you create–so share your infographics with us so we can celebrate your creations.

Speaking of sharing– did anyone make a good bubb.li or photo collage that they would like to share? We’re still waiting for your submissions. If you missed May 23rds post, it’s not too late to give it a try!





iTeach Sitka, Phew!! A Great Week

10 06 2014

iTeach2: What a fabulous way to learn new skills, talk about pedagogy, look at what your colleagues are exploring, pick up new tricks, get feedback from experts, learn mobile technologies, and so much more, all packed in 5 fast and furious days. Wow. It’s hard to believe that we all survived!

We thank all of our faculty participants for enthusiastically joining us and sharing some great creations. And, in addition to the Title III and IDC crew, we want to thank our guests, Katie Walker, UAA, Susan Mircovich, KPC, and Madara Mason, UAF for making this week so successful.

If you want to see some of the great observations and creations from faculty last week you can search our twitter feed at #iteachak and you can visit our iTeach blog at http://iteachsitka2014.wordpress.com

We’ll be sharing more resources soon– keep your eyes open this summer. There’s lots coming your way!

 

 





Great Opportunity: Ask the Expert

Susan Mircovich

Susan Mircovich, KPC

We have a great opportunity to interact with an expert instructor and user of Camtasia. Susan Mircovich uses Camtasia lessons to help her students learn chemistry. She has created a tutorial Camtasia Recordings a Short Tutorial (35 minutes long) for you to get started using this tool.

Camtasia is like Jing on steroids– in fact, Jing is the TechSmith’s simple, free tool and Camtasia is their higher end product. Camtasia Studio is a software product that the university provides for faculty use.

Susan developed this tutorial expecting you to have Camtasia open while she demonstrates various techniques. You can pause her webinar while you try it out for yourself. In this tutorial you will:

  • See examples of camtasia projects and hear how Susan uses these movie clips in her course
  • Learn to record a project
  • Edit a project
  • Save and publish your movie
  • Learn about some extras: menus, title clips, callouts and transitions

As an extra bonus, Susan will make herself available to questions either in a followup Collaborate session or via email 1:1. It’s up to you. We’ll need to hear from you to let us know if you’d like us to schedule Susan for a group session or if you’d like to contact her personally.

Finally, another reason to think about signing up for the Sitka iTeach2 — Susan will be one of our guest instructional designers working with faculty all week long. We’re really looking forward to her joining us this summer! Thank you Susan.
