Social, educational & open media in an SFU classroom.

I have used Storify to introduce social media before. And I’m not above doing so again. For its sheer ease of use, and how quickly you can assemble a story from a wide assortment online sources, it should be an early stop on your Edmedia quest.

This is an eg. of how media elements (video and pics) can be “embedded” from external sites such as youtube and flickr.

There was a graphic recording on site to augment the keynote, it had an immediate as well as a delayed impact, by design.

This image was created on from amazing keynote from Dr. Rajiv Jhangiani titledĀ ā€œAn openness to openness: The terrifying and liberating process of disrupting higher educationā€.
