“I really enjoy flipping my class because discussions are richer, and it’s more engaging for students. I think there was a little bit of mixed reaction at first, but students enjoy the class a lot more because it’s more interactive,” said Robert Brookover, lecturer and coordinator of undergraduate programs and outreach in the department. “We have a studio set up in the college where we can record Mediasite presentations. The next goal is to use My Mediasite so that we can record lectures right at our desks versus going to another building.”In addition to flipped instruction, faculty are using Mediasite to:
- Blend learning. Students spend a portion of the class online and another face-to-face. My Mediasite allows faculty to easily create video presentations for the online portion and embed it in Blackboard, the campus learning management system, for students to watch.
- Avoid missed lectures. When faculty know they will be out of office, they pre-record their lectures for students to watch outside of class, so they don’t miss out on any lectures and fall behind.
- Create professional portfolios. The college partners with the Student Affairs masters degree program, allowing students to record philosophy statements for their required e-Portfolios.
