With Daniel Villalba Algas from Politics / Sociological studies I have been successful in a bid to the Learning & Teaching development fund and have been award £500 for a pilot project to “promote production of material for flipped lectures”.
The bid is based around two applications.
Explain Everything is a unique interactive screencasting whiteboard app which we will be able to make use of with the staff iPads to create learning material.
Plickers is a simple tool that lets lecturers collect real-time formative assessment data without the need for student devices
First meeting with the central MOOC team about timings for the next run of the Crime Justice and Society course on Futurelearn.
We have already begun to reuse some of the MOOC material in our existing MOLE modules.
The first run of the MOOC had over 5500 active learners from 136 different countries
Small group hands on session to try out explain everything on the iPad. Looks like we will be purchasing a few licences, possibly in conjunction with politics. First impression are it’ll be a useful tool help build learning material for our flipped classrooms
