21st Century Classes are Teacher-Led but Student-Driven - Vlog

Here it is . . . I have been wanting to use the Vlog (Video Blog) format for my blog for a LONG time so I decided to do it today to tell you about an AWESOME experience I had in class last Tuesday night.

I teach two 1.5 hour online courses on Tuesday night through Adobe Connect. These are video conferencing sessions that allow the students and me to keep a connection that we wouldn't have otherwise.

This past Tuesday, I was meeting with my Emerging Instructional Technology class. This is a class of 15 students who are a mixture of Masters students and Undergraduate students. Good group of people. I had decided to spend some time getting feedback about how the class had been running. I received the typical feedback about too much work, but as we probed their comments we found that there was a difference between the perceptions of the undergraduates and the graduates . . .

I am not going say anymore or you won't need to watch this 7-minute video.
Tell me what you think and whether or not I should continue with periodic vlogs like this.

  1. Sounds like I missed a great moment in class! I like the Vlog approach. Made a great addition to my lunch...and was easier than reading while eating!
