As you think about readings, projects, assignments, etc., in online or hybrid classes, you may want to consider some of the following issues.
Hypothes.is: This online annotation tool can be used to hold discussions, read socially, organize your research, and take personal notes. For more information about using Hypothes.is, see our presentation slides, our handout with step-by-step instructions for instructors, and video tutorials by Hypothes.is.
By adjusting permissions in Zoom sessions, students can share their screens and give presentations synchronously to the class. This most closely resembles face-to-face presentations and can provide students with a new set of experiences to prepare them for a mediated world.
Students' individual presentations can be done asynchronously with a screen recording tool like Screencast-o-Matic, which allows recordings up to 15 minutes for free. Students can upload their recordings to Youtube with the privacy set to Unlisted and share the Youtube link to class Discussions on Canvas. Check out the Beginner's Guide to Screencast-O-Matic for videos and written instructions on getting started.
Students can also collaborate on a FlipGrid through Canvas to present as a group with short videos. If you are already familiar with FlipGrid, check out slides from our presentation on FlipGrid and Canvas or this Canvas blog article: Using FlipGrid in Canvas. Using FlipGrid for the first time? Check out this tutorial video for beginners on Creating Video Assignments in FlipGrid.
Students can also audio narrate with video/audio posts to Discussions in Canvas. Learn more in this Discussions Overview video from Canvas.
