Youtube: Expanding the Classroom
- 3 Credits
This course is for any teacher who desires a way to help, as well as communicate, with students, their parents, and other teachers after school hours. It would also be very useful for those teachers who want to Flip their Classroom. The participant will be given the guidance and opportunity to develop helpful or instructional videos that anyone can access online. They will unveil the power that YouTube, other free video hosting sites, and screen recorder programs like Jing have to offer. Even though YouTube is blocked by most schools, be aware that it is only the means for students to access the videos outside of school. Any video a participant finds on YouTube can be downloaded so it can then be shown in class, if so desired.
