Additional Assessments

An issue with online education is that class time is traditionally measured by butt time – scheduled minutes of class time. Narrated PowerPoints usually run less time than the length of an ordinary class period, for the reasons discussed below. While students will likely spend more time on the slides than the nominal running time, I am adding periodic assessments on some of the materials that we will cover. These give you feedback on your knowledge of the material and count toward the required time spent on pedagogy.  I have added your first assessment exercise to Moodle. Please complete it when you finished your readings and review of the PowerPoints. You may try the quiz more than once. Let me know if you have problems accessing the quiz.

Using the PowerPoints Effectively

The narrated PowerPoint presentations are very dense. Using the same slides as I use in class, the class presentation takes about twice as long as the recording. This is because the classroom performance has more pauses and more interruptions and because I talk slower in class. I am giving you the slides as well as the videos with the expectation that you can page through the slides (outside of autoplay) and listen to the narration slide by slide.  I record these slide by slide so that they can be played slide by slide. It takes more time than just recording a lecture and flipping through the slides, but it makes it easier to use them for review. I post the videos to meet the ADA requirements of captioning for all posted materials with audio content.
