Online Engagement: Technology

Technology is making it possible for engaged instructors to expand teaching and learning in dynamic ways. Courses like the one described by Sarah Vigmostad require:  

1. A lecture capture/streaming video solution for recording lectures and also making them available online for students.

  • ​​​Panopto (UICapture) digitally records audio, video, or screen content and makes it available to students as either downloadable or streaming recordings. 
  • Kaltura is a digital media platform which allows users to upload, tag content with metadata, view, browse and play media assets via easy-to-use video and audio streaming software. Kaltura is integrated with ICON, and can be used to deliver content outside of ICON as well.

2. A drawing software solution for creating content with a simple stylus pen and computer tablet.

  • OneNote allows Instructors to import PowerPoint slides and then draw on them to explain content.  

3. A distance web conferencing solution for classes that meet online.

  • Zoom is a web conferencing solution offered by the University of Iowa. Zoom allows users to meet in online meetings, share audio and video information, schedule webinars, use questionnaires in meetings, and much more.
