Welcome to Module 14: Creativity

Greetings all and welcome to the week where the tables turn! We devote an entire week to your own creative curiosity. The module is here.

Action Items:

  • Be sure to check your blog for pending comments. Dashboard –> Comments. You may see some that need approval.
  • Did you submit your blog URL to Canvas?
  • We are in the home stretch. Make sure you are focused on your Symposium entries as well as your final blog posts.
  • Thanks for the Director’s Brief submissions so far. I will be grading all week. (Did you submit to Canvas? 🙂 )
  • You have all week to create, but please submit the URL for your symposium post to Canvas when you are ready!

Upcoming #hyperlib Chats(For those who can’t attend, these chats will be recorded.)

We will have two 30 minute sessions for us as a wrap up for our class. It will be a drop in style informal chat. I hope this works for as many of you as possible.

    I’d like to do a short, narrated slideshow but I’m not sure what the best platform would be for this. Any suggestions from my knowledgeable classmates? I have the slides – I’m just not sure how to format it so I can ‘lecture’ while advancing the slides manually.

      Originally, the slides were made in Google Slides but I saved them as jpg images so I can paste them in any platform. I also found this article linked from the one you sent. This Office Mix add-in for Power Point is free and might work. https://www.presentation-guru.com/how-to-turn-your-powerpoint-into-a-video/

      I’ll look into Jing. I think a screencast may be what I want. I basically want to give a live presentation but record it. Like what you do for our course lectures.

          Crystal, thank you for reminding me of this! I’ve given live group presentations for other classes doing this. As I recall, you can load your slides right into Zoom, right? I wasn’t formerly in charge of the tech so I can’t quite remember how we did it.

            @zaharako – you would open powerpoint (or whatever program your slides are in), then click “share screen” in Zoom and select that program. If you want to make it look like Dr. Stephens’ recordings, you could also share your video.

            @michael, it won’t automatically transcribe student recordings. It only does that for cloud recordings – and professors are the only ones who can record to the cloud.

    Here’s the message about Jing. Looks like it will soon be phased out. https://www.techsmith.com/jing-tool.html
    Camtasia is a little fancy but I think I can play with it. looks like you can make a regular slideshow in any platform you want, then Camtasia allows you to record your screen as you narrate. The cool thing is that you can do it in chunks, then rearrange and edit the chunks. So, you could narrate a blurb for each slide, then arrange the slides. This could be useful for making tutorials or using explanations in multiple presentations. I might try it for the Ukulele workshops I give for children’s librarians – i could post tutorials on my website of stuff they might want to review. This will be a big tech week for me!
