The past two years have created unique opportunities to develop simulations and interactive elements for learning. Five Conestoga faculty share their experiences in developing everything from DIY interactives to complex virtual reality learning experiences. Hear about their experiences collaborating on innovative digital learning projects with key college and provincial services. Ask questions, and share your own thoughts about innovation in education.
These workshops were presented as part of the learning at the Tech For Teaching Days. Reach out to email@example.com for more support or with any questions.
Are you interested in creating videos you can use and reuse in your courses? Conestoga has recently licensed Panopto, a full feature video service for exactly this! Create screenshares, role plays, equipment demonstrations, whiteboard diagram demonstrations and more. Use Panopto much like YouTube to create, edit, transcribe and share videos, but with the added benefit of unlimited storage and retention, and integration and analytics with your eConestoga courses. Work on a brief sample video and gain some hands-on experience building videos in Panopto. Learn some principles of educational video creation alongside technical tips and leave with greater confidence in creating your own teaching and learning videos.
