Lisa Tripp – Teaching Digital Media Production Online

Principles for teaching a Media course online:

  1. Scaffold student learning
  2. Use open source Web 2.0 (uses WordPress, MediaWiki, Audacity, GIMP, but hasn’t found a good opensource video editing software)
  3. Forster a culture of collaboration among students
  4. Help students to understand Copyright – also talks about what you can do – eg Centre for Social Media “code of practices in fair use for online video”, Creative Commons (currently 130 million licensed works available online).
