Readings and Resources

Readings and Resources

There has been discussion about lecture recordings; short and specific recordings and video as collaborative exercices. We've talked alot about our own personal experiences - have you found any useful readings; books, articles or blog postings - that have helped you frame your video use or understanding?

I'm being somewhat self-interested in this question. I've found it difficult to find resources that go beyond the technological discussion. Have there been studies on instroducing video effectively? On teaching our students and audience to be critical viewers (I firmly believe that frequency of screen viewing doesn't equal effective screen viewing!)? There are plenty of readings on the changing brain, increasing literacies - do those priviledge the print, even now?

There's a section in Bonk & Zhang's Empowering Online Learning (2008 Jossey-Bass) that I found useful.

Use free stuff......Re: Readings and Resources

Thanks for promoting my R2D2 book Paddy. That is kind of you.

Don't buy the book. Use free stuff. Smile. For instance, this article came out a few books ago (written years ago) on the use of shared online video. It contains 10 ideas for student-centered use of shared online video and 10 for instructor-centered use:

 Bonk, C. J. (2011). YouTube anchors and enders: The use of shared online video content as a macrocontext for learning. Asia-Pacific Collaborative Education Journal, 7(1). Available:

You might also explore:

1. My portal for shared online video sites:

2. The videos with my learning theories course:



3. My 27 short (10 minute) videos for how to teach online (I did for the Indiana U School of Ed); called the V-PORTAL or "Video Primers in an Online Repository for  e-Teaching & Learning":


b. (my YouTube channel...faster)

This is free to the world to use as you wish. You can splice em and dice how you want. Share them. Download them. Remix them. And even sell them.


Use Free Stuff...and perhaps buy my book if you want. Smile.

I have just received this invite from Kaltura. Some of you may be interested in attending this webinar, which takes place today.

Kaltura Inspire  Webinar: Enhance Your Online Learning Environment with Video  Tuesday, January 24, 2012 2:00 PM-3:00 PM EST

In the face of the rich media revolution, educational institutions are using video to power every aspect of campus life. The challenge is finding media infrastructure that is agile, scalable, and cost effective. More universities are using video internally and externally for teaching and learning, distance learning and hybrid instruction, training, enhancing assignments, and as a means of collaboration between students and faculty.
This webinar will explore how video and new forms of multimedia-enabled learning are revolutionizing education across the country.  Video in education now goes beyond simple publishing and includes internal university 'YouTubes', deep learning management system integrations, creating a central media repository, collaborative video assignments, video for distance education and libraries, and media-powered blogs and social networks.
Join our panelists - Cornell University, Oregon State University, and Kaltura video experts - to learn about online video projects that have been deployed, hear about the challenges and current best practices, and have your questions answered during Q&A.

Andy Page - Manager, Video Collaboration Services, Cornell University
Raul Burriel - Streaming Media Coordinator, Oregon State University
