Before anyone gets sick
Students are encouraged to have a “study buddy.” These people can be a go-between for sick students and their respective faculty members. Likewise, faculty should have a “teaching buddy.” The buddy should have a copy of the syllabus and access to the Blackboard course and the Mediasite presentations, if appropriate. Faculty uncomfortable with this should at least give the Office of Educational Technology (OET) access to the Blackboard courses (we already have access to the Mediasite presentations) so we can give the “buddy” appropriate access if necessary due to illness.
Many of you have been using Mediasite recordings as a way to deliver your online courses, but some of you may not realize its full potential beyond distance learning.
“Turn classroom lectures into instant online courses. Mediasite records your instruction and webcasts it live, automatically. Learners can watch it in real-time, later on-demand or listen on-the-go with podcasting.
We will be sending a video link shortly that OET made using Mediasite along with the newest features available with our recent upgrade!
