- Eileen Lawrence, Alexander Street Press, United Kingdom
- Documents to download
Eileen Lawrence from Alexander Street Press will show how customers using streaming audio (music, plays, spoken word) and streaming video (newsreels, documentaries, ethnographic field footage) have created online courses and personal playlists.
Attendees of this talk with see how to use simple online “clip-making” capabilities, and then assemble the clips into personal playlists, along with whole music albums, videos, Web content, and content from other publishers’ online collections.
We will show how these playlists become online courses, with specific examples of playlists that were created by both instructors and students. Annotation capabilities turn the playlists and clips into richly detailed projects that become “online publications.”
We’ll show how faculty and students around the world share these creations, copying them, adding to them, and using one another’s playlists as ready-to-go classes.
Attendees together will create a new playlist called “A history of Prague in sound and video” during the presentation. Come listen to the music, watch the video footage, and be creative together!
