Here is Scott Hibberson reflecting on our digital storytelling week using Bitstrips:
What I have learnt/have tried/have noted from being part of this MOOC so far…..
- How to set up and film with iPad, lights, mic, autocue
- How to use Slack as a team/project space
- Make sure the dates don’t clash with Easter holidays!
Intro wk 1
- How to take part in a Google+ community
- Announcement email needs to be posted at the time the course opens, with Send eMail immediately ticked
- Emails from Announcements do not show images – these are only seen when logged in
- People joined the G+ community, but may not have been enrolled on the course
- Have set up a ZeeMap, posted the link on the G+ community: and added as a link to ‘About this community’
- AdviseUoN staff that the login for the OpenEducation course is not the same as their NILE login
- Send a welcome message to everyone who posts in G+.
- To use open ended questions in welcome blog posts in order to encourage participants to engage
Intro wk 2
- Have set up an account with Google Analytics, and tracked ZeeMap
- Found that you can schedule tweets (e.g. Q1,2,3) using Tweetdeck
- Will use Tricider for voting/decision making
- Have seen how to add Upcoming Events to Google+ Community
- Zaption is great for adding questions to an online video such as YouTube or TED
- Used Time and date.com to generate a link for the Tweetchat
- Recorded the tweetchat using Storify !!
- Trying (not very successfully) SocioViz.net
- Google Hangout for team meetings – brilliant use of time, recorded.
- Tweet root
- Used Send eMail in the course site to remind everyone of how to log onto Open Education, and to Google+
- Send reminder tweets about the Tweetchat, so that people can schedule
- Advised Nicki of Evaluation > Course Reports
- Investigating RISE leaderboard, and G+ analytics with Jim
I’ve learnt so much! – and that’s not even the course content.……. 🙂
