This was a great module! I experimented with creating a video of myself introducing my online chemistry course. It was very easy to make. I could see myself using videos such as this to inform students about important course events and to present mini lectures. I also explored other tools that could be used to create my own content.
1.) Prezi: This can be used to create presentations. However, I still like using PowerPoint better. And, Prezi is only free for one month. Then, you have to pay to use it.
2.) Jing: This tool can be used to capture screens (videos, images, etc.). I would like to explore this more.
I also learned about additional tools from my classmates:
1.) Camtasia: This can combine video, audio, and Power Point. I could see myself using this for lectures.
2.) Tegrity Lecture capture: Again, webcam can be combined with PowerPoint. Perhaps this would be easier to use than Camtasia? Only experimentation will tell…
