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.

Web 2.0 for Teaching

Workshop from April 2009 with Kristi Reyes and Eli Clarke (52 minutes). Workshop description: Web 2.0, also known as the “read/write web,” is a way to make your online classes come alive with multimedia and opportunities for collaborating, commenting, and sharing. Take project-based learning into the 21st Century using Web 2.0 tools: give students engaging opportunities to interact with the instructor and their classmates, express themselves creatively, and publish to a world-wide audience – all online and for free. Blogs, podcasts, and wikis will be discussed, but if you are already familiar with these tools, come to learn about sites for making multimedia scrapbook pages, slideshows, interactive timelines, and other mash-ups. Come with images, audio and video files, PowerPoint slides, if you like. No need for flashdrives! Everything is saved online and is fully embeddable on the LMS (Blackboard, Moodle, etc.) you use.
