Kelly has moved some of his course content, and the organization of it, to a website using the WordPress platform. This accomplishes a couple of valuable things. First, it allows his students to access course material long after the course is over, and secondly it allows future students, colleagues, and the community at-large to see what Kelly is doing in his classes. Here is his site.
Laura has been using YouTube as a way to explain ideas (lectures) to students and as a way to introduce the course activities in her courses. Below is an example.
Here is her presentation from the Showcase:
Larry often starts classes with a short reading. He reads to set the stage for the day and to create atmosphere. He creates a setting for the class and he shares ideas that create conversational topics to start the class with.
Marissa uses several tools in her math classes to create content including Camtasia and a Bamboo tablet. Below is an example of her work.
