lynda.com to host a free webinar on online learning

Published by | Monday, August 13th, 2012

This week, lynda.com presents a free webinar for educators as well as corporate and government trainers. In Online learning: How video changes and enhances the way we learn, discover how a great online video addresses the “why” of each lesson, presents the big picture of the subject matter, and supports the big-picture idea with granular details and steps.

In the last three decades, education has moved beyond the four walls of the classroom to the infinite possibilities of the Internet. Training resources using rich media are everywhere: YouTube, Vimeo, Open Education Resources, lecture capture inside learning management systems, and third-party rich media libraries.

Educator and digital media expert Laurie Burruss leads our free webinar, explaining how these factors affect our learning:

• transcripts and closed-captioning

• playback controls

• anywhere/anytime access

• personalization and customization

• repetition and failure in a private setting

Free Live with Lynda webinar starts Wednesday: Authentic Learning with Michael Wesch

Published by | Monday, March 28th, 2011

In a collaborative partnership, lynda.com and New Media Consortium (NMC) are initiating a series of monthly webinars called Live with Lynda targeted at higher education to inspire thought leadership, support best practices in education, and to share strategies for online learning. Every other month I will interview a thought leader who inspires us all in education. On alternate months, Laurie Burruss, Senior Director of Education at lynda.com, will feature best practices and strategies for online learning in higher education presented by either educators in the nmc.org community or by lynda.com authors.

Michael Wesch

Michael Wesch, Associate Professor of Cultural Anthropology, Kansas State University, joins Lynda on Wednesday for a webinar interview.

On March 30 from 11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m., I am excited to interview one of my heros in education, Michael Wesch, Associate Professor in Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University. Dubbed “the explainer” by Wired magazine, Michael Wesch is a cultural anthropologist exploring the impact of new media on society and culture. His videos on technology, education, and information have been viewed by millions, translated in over ten languages, and are frequently featured at international film festivals and major academic conferences worldwide.

The topic of the interview is Authentic Learning, and here is the short description:

Join the interview and discussion related to how teaching practices are shifting from the sage on stage to group problem solving and student collaboration. Lynda interviews Michael Wesch about his personal journey as a teacher, the challenges he faced as he changed his approach, the successes and barriers to making the change, and watch as he and a few of his students showcase some of their current projects.

Learn more about Michael and his work at Kansas State University on its site. See his student collaborative work on his YouTube channel.
