Five simple multimedia projects help faculty integrate digital media into course assignments:
1. Blogging. Using WordPress or Blogger, students can create an online journal. To view and assess their work, you can gather up the URLS and create a course blog portal to see all students' work in one place. Great for summarizing reading and reflection.
2. Wiki. A wiki lets students create a website using an online tool for collaborative writing. It offers basic word processing and is great for team of people working together to compose content. It's easy to add a large group of users and to make the website private. The instructor can easily view each individual's contribution. Great for research projects.
3. Audio recording. Students can plan, script and create a simple talk show or conduct an audio interview. Great for public speaking and group communication activities.
4. Screencasting. Students can record anything on a computer, adding narration or sound, to create a simple movie. Great for reviews or critical analysis activities involving digital media.
5. Video production. Using a video camera or their cell phone, students can develop a set of ideas into a simple video, organizing ideas into a format that uses simple trim and assemble editing to share information or document events. Great for representing learning in a creative way, displaying complex processes, or for adding value to inspiring, entertaining, persuasive or informative presentations.
