Discovery – What I learned using eCommons
November 16, 2011, 3:00 pm Miriam Greenberg, Sociology
Regularization and Specialization: Designing a flexible eCommons Teacher Site for Sociology 10
Listen to the webcast recording of her talk. Webcast, Greenberg.
February 7, 2012, Noon - 1:30 pm Elizabeth Stephens, Art, eCommons and Artists
Elizabeth Stephens will discuss using eCommons in conjunction with teaching her large art course 3D Foundation. This course was a hybrid course that combined large weekly lectures with studio sections where the students made 3D art work. Implementing eCommons in this foundation course has proven extremely useful for sharing information with large numbers of students. This web based format also makes it easy to share images of art work, artists websites and to post lectures online. eCommons has also posed challenges in terms following how the students absorb the information, especially the art, presented online as the web is one step further removed from physical art work. Stephens will discuss these issues and more in her presentation on eCommons in art foundation courses.
