Create Multimedia Lessons Using BlendspacePosted on 11/30/2015
In the November Web-based Activity article Debbie Jensen writes that”there are so many wonderful resources on the Web.” She wonders “How can we gather them to use effectively in our classrooms?” Her one answer is Blendspace.
“With it you can “easily find, add, and share online content (videos, images, PDFs, Google docs)” with your students. But that is just the beginning. With lessons you create on Blendspace, you can improve student participation. Students can access your multi-media lessons on any device. They can make comments within the lesson and take automatically-graded quizzes.
Blendspace is easy to use. When they say you can create a lesson in five minutes they are sincere. You can search content from YouTube, Google, Flickr, Dropbox, Google Drive, as well as other online resources and your own computer. The search ability within each resource is quick and helps you find pertinent content. Once created, lessons can be private, or shared with your class or other teachers. The online gallery gives you access to lessons made by other teachers that you can copy and remix.
With the free account, you can create as many classes as you like with up to 35 students in each class. Students access lessons by enrolling at Blendspace or by using a shared code you provide.”
