Workshop Flyer

 

Facilitator: Anymir Orellana, EdD, Professor, Abraham S. Fischler College of Education and School of Criminal Justice 

Workshop Description: 
So, you would like to share a presentation and decided to use Zoom to record it. You might be aware that you can share videos via various platforms (e.g., YouTube, Vimeo, Canvas, and SharkMedia) and that your choice depends on the purpose and the intended audience. You also understand that a good practice is to add closed captions to your video, but you might not know how. You probably think it will take too long or it is too complicated, or you simply have not had a chance to figure it out. If you can relate to any of the aforementioned cases, then this hands-on virtual workshop is for you! 

Objectives: 

  1. Using SharkMedia or an existing account in YouTube or Vimeo, add closed captions to a video previously recorded to the cloud with Zoom 
  2. Embed in Canvas a closed-captioned video uploaded toSharkMedia, YouTube, or Vimeo

Tips from OIIT on BlendFlex Classroom Technology 

In support of the BlendFlex model and the Return of the Sharks in our new “normal”, classrooms have been enhanced with additional video technology capabilities.  The podium computers have cameras connected to facilitate video conferencing and Zoom related activities. Below are some tips to follow for the new podium equipment to prevent improper handling of the equipment: 

Podium Computer Tips 

  • Do not re-locate the cameras on the podium.  They have been set for maximum coverage of the instructor and classroom. 
  • Do not disconnect any of the camera equipment located at the podium 
  • Do not move the podium 
  • Do not wipe the touch screens or touch panels with any type of Clorox, alcohol, or moist cloth (this will ruin the display).  OIIT and Facilities will clean the equipment. 
  • Leave all materials, instructions, and remote controls at the podium when your class is over. 
  • Sign out of Computer to maintain your account security.
