Today was a great day in the IT Treks class. Yesterday I thought that UM Connect was the only way to go with taping and storing videos of speakers to be used by students and to start a video library for both BME & SMGT. I was wrong - Pete explained how the simpler Skype can be used to reach my goals. The equipment and softwear needed was also identified. My TA and myself will be meeting Pete in the near future to put together protocols for taping and Skype.
Michelle Everson also gave me an excellent idea to be used in my SMGT class. We will be doing 3 to 4 debates on hot topics in the financial aspects of sport. The idea of using on line discussion groups as part of the process to prepare for the debates pop into my head while Michelle was presenting discussion groups as part of her on line class.
