[updated 3.1.12 at 2:28pm]
I had no problems posting comments on Rachael’s “Motivation to Learn” (3.1.12) and Pete’s “How often do students check their email?” (3.1.12), but I had difficulty with Fate’s “Ah, one mo’ time, please” (2.29.12) and Brent’s “An Abbreviated Laulima Orientation Video” (3.1.12).
I have a bunch of different Google and WordPress accounts (with different usernames, passwords, and avatars) so the fault is probably mine. I find it easiest to comment in blogs that allow anyone to post or provide an “anonymous” option. I realize that many of you are wary of spam or unwanted comments so don’t feel that you need to change your settings to accommodate me. What I’ll do is post my comments here, instead. If this is a problem, please let me know.
Brent — I didn’t realize your Laulima orientation was available on YouTube. I’ve added a link to it in all my course blogs! It covers all the basics in a clear, straightforward way. BTW, what did you use to record the video? I really like the opening! <g>
Fate — Your Lego exercise to demonstrate team building is excellent! Very imaginative. I can see why the students would get into it. I’ll add an update to this post on how a similar exercise may be set up for online use. I’ll have to think about it. A fascinating problem!
Update 3/5 8:00opm: Fate, one possibility is to ask members to each submit an action photo from the web. For example, here are a couple:
The more different, the better. They could then upload and share them. Next, they could discuss how to create a montage via Photoshop (or another photo editing program) that includes all the photos in an aesthetic design. They could then add a storyline and share the results with the class.
