Glossy – MoLeNET

Plastered

Had a really good session this morning with a group of Plastering lecturers. They are keen on creating video podcasts on plastering techniques and using video for assessment.

I have lent them an Asus EeePC to experiment and pilot with (as it comes with a webcam) to see if they feel it is of use for what they want to do, or whether they want to use traditional digital video cameras.

We went through the process of capturing and converting video, putting the video on the VLE, on a PSP and on a mobile phone.

Though will have a minimal impact on the MoLeNET project, will have a much larger impact on learners next year, which is to be honest what Glossy is all about, long term impact and sustainability.

Podcasting

At our College Development Day I ran two over-booked sessions on Podcasting. They were only an hour an half each, but in each session, I gave an overview of podcasting, the staff then discussed how they could use podcasts to support teaching and learning and then created a podcast, before uploading it online and seeing how learners could download it and view on a mobile device such as an iPod.

Sessions seemed to go well and quite a few other people during the day asked if I could run podcasting sessions for them at some other time, as they couldn’t make the sessions I was running.
