We are the Program for Online Teaching, a group of volunteer faculty helping other faculty teach better online.

Our focus is on pedagogy as the guiding force for using technologies for teaching.

Many of us are from MiraCosta College in Oceanside, California. MiraCostans may access the Teaching/Technology Innovations Center for technical help, resources, news and more.

Podcasting: A podcast is an audio recording broadcast over the Web. Instructors can record class lectures, announcements, information, and listening exercises for students to listen to again and again. Students can record their own voices to share ideas and practice oral skills. The audio recordings can be heard via the internet or downloaded and transported on audio devices such as .mp3 players (ipods). Learn how to make audio recordings and do simple editing with Audacity audio editor. Create your own podcast channel online, make a podcast episode, and see how to share and comment on podcasts.

Digital Storytelling: Digital stories multimedia projects that combine audio (voice narration, music), images and/or video, titles, special effects, and transitions. Make learning outcomes memorable by creating customized video content or by giving students the ultimate opportunity to express themselves creatively — with their own voices, images they make or choose, music, and more. Learn the steps of creating a digital story, using Windows Movie Maker, and how to render a project as a video file that can be emailed or uploaded and shared on the Web. Find out how digital stories can be used to assess attainment of student learning outcomes across the curriculum, in all disciplines. See What is a Digital Story? 7 Elements and 10 Types of Multimedia Stories at the ESL Technology Workshops wiki.
