April 27, 2011

Good Afternoon Instructors,

In my last two blog posts I discussed a couple of great, free online video/audio lecture repositories, and I have received some wonderful feedback from you on these resources.  I'm glad so many of you are giving these resources a try, and please keep me posted as to what your students think once they've viewed/listened to the lectures you have shared with them.  They may be lectures we want to add to the master shell so all future sections can benefit from too, so keep me posted on how things go! 

Because of the great response from the past two postings, I'd like to share a couple of more resources over the next few weeks, with today's focus on is another free university video/audio lecture repository from institutes such as MIT and Yale.  While on first glance it may appear to be a science based repository, when you begin to look through the listing you'll actually see lectures on literature, art, and language too, so whether you teach in the areas of the hard sciences or the soft sciences, I encourage you to check this resource out (and as always, let me know what you think!).

A couple of really cool features of LectureFox is that it identifies for you whether or not it is a video lecture or an audio lecture via specific icons to the right of the lecture title in the lecture list, and many even include notes for study that accompany the lecture, which could be a huge benefit for students.

Once again, check out this resource and let me know what you think!

Have a great rest of the week!
