Feedback form is now closed.
Oregon State University Ecampus is excited to showcase three innovative media solutions that can increase student engagement. Instructional design and multimedia experts present examples from statistics and microbiology where media elements captured students’ interest, increased participation, and created a more fun and engaging learning experience. We will demonstrate Video Driven Learning (VDL), animation, and interactive learning activities. We will discuss the benefits derived from these solutions, including how VDL provides student-use metrics that inform instructors and help them assess video effectiveness to enhance student performance, refresh learning materials and improve course design. The animation segment shows the magic of facial motion capture to create realistic, human-like character movement. As a valuable take-away, we’ll provide a resource list for different levels of production, budgets and skills, from affordable easy-to-use DIY solutions to high-end professional development suites, so you can choose tools appropriate for your institution and situation.
