A great new teaching resource I have been recently introduced to by Jan Tucker, online adjunct instructor, is GlogsterEDU. This interactive tool - that has a free account option for instructors - allows you to transform a traditional poster board presentation into an interactive, online poster board presentation that can include text, graphics, pictures, videos and other creative strategies. I see many great opportunities for this in our online courses.
- It could be an excellent tool for creating an instructor welcome/biography presentation such as the one Jan Tucker has started on and is continuing to work on here
- It could be a fun, interactive and unique way to create a unit lecture
- It could be a great tool for working with students in creating a study guide for students (you could assign students different components to create and you as the instructor could then compile everything together into a Glog...it could even be a discussion board focus for a unit)
- It could be a great tool for synthesizing course material to show students how each unit and each concept is interrelated into a bigger picture.
