Topic: Advantages of Video Streaming
Video streaming is a way to make relevant video material available to
students for viewing in the classroom, computer labs and libraries, and from
home. Students do not have to make a special trip to the library or wait
their turn to view a single copy of a video tape or DVD. A fast Internet
connection and a computer is all that is needed to view a video that is
streamed. Students can view the video as often as needed or replay
This will be a discussion and demonstration of video streaming by Ed Madonna
and Dr. William Johnson. Both will discuss their reasons for streaming video
to supplement class work. We will discuss the technical process of using
existing video or producing new content for streaming. Digitizing and
editing the video as well as the process of transferring them to the CCRI
streaming server for student access will also be covered.
The video demonstrations will include math tutorials that have been
available at our Math labs and have recently been made available to CCRI
students online. We will also view dissection video clips produced by Dr.
Johnson for his classes and other Biology students that wish to view them.

Presenter: Kristin Bell, WebCT
Kristin conducted a 1-hour virtual
workshop to inform faculty about WebCT course content that is available as a free
resource for all instructors. Did you know that the textbook you are
currently using likely has course content already developed on the WebCT
platform? Participants learned about e-Packs and saw some demos of various e-Packs
in an array of disciplines. Also were exposed to strategies in how to use this content to teach a
web enhanced, hybrid or online classes. This workshop was virtual,
which meant that participants could
attend remotely from their home or office.
