The Periscope app, that is. I’m experimenting with this live broadcast app as a tool for going over course content each week, reviewing previous work, and holding Q&A sessions. I need to tweak settings for capturing comments as they come in, but overall I think this will enhance the experience of an online course and distance learning. I’m posting them on Youtube so that anyone can replay a broadcast. I’d be glad to hear from anyone who’s had experience with this as a tool in education, suggestions for best practices, and so on. Post a comment or send me a message with your tips, observations, etc.
