Don't Let Old Man Winter Slow You Down

The winter weather prevented the Nursing class from attending their first week of classes. This lost face-to-face time put the students behind in a complex and difficult course. By using the Tegrity video recording system I was able to give the students the information that would have been provided in class. Most of the students were able to navigate the My Heritage website and find the video lecture with simple written commands but others were not. I made a few errors as well that I was able to correct when I reviewed myself before posting the video. One recommendation that I pass along is to show the students where the Tegrity feature is located on the webpage in person. Also, websites and word documents need to be enlarged so the students can see information clearly. I found that zooming in twice for websites and 150% for word documents allowed students to see information without difficulty.
How did you use technology to keep your classes rolling during the snow days?

Wow, Laura! You make me want to get that Tegrity training soon. Had I uploaded an introduction to a course that I couldn't teach that first snow day, I could have saved a lot of student confusion about the syllabus and assignments.
