Learn – April 2017
April 10th, 2017
While we believe that student-created multimedia has the potential to enable deeper learning across a variety of disciplines, we are also aware that it can present several new challenges in course design, delivery, and assessment. The following opportunities might help you along the way:
The Kaneb Center at the University of Notre Dame is regularly developing new strategies for equipping faculty to teach effectively with new technologies. One such effort is their new Remix-U (which extends their previous effort, Remix-T).
Remix-U is a self-directed learning site that provides students and faculty the opportunity to develop new skills for creating digital media. The site currently includes three micro-credentials, or badges, for sound, image, & video editing.
