Examples

Professor Michael Fratantuono – “Globlaization, Sustainability, Security”

In this first year seminar, Professor Fratantuono had his students compare what they’d learned from “Guns, Germs, and Steel” and “Hot Flat and Crowded”  with their experience playing the game Civ IV.

Professor Ed Webb – “Empire”

In this International Studies course, Professor Webb instructed his students to play a historical mod of Civ IV that represents the western world in 1492.  Students took on the role of Spain and their first encounter with the Aztecs.  Students then compared their own actions and situation with history and used the ideas from “The Conquest of America: The Question of the Other” to discuss possible reasons for discrepancies.

Video Shooting Techniques

Description

Why do some videos look stylized and professional while others look like an amateur created it……even if both were done by students?  There are a few answers to that question but one key element is what techniques were used when the video was originally shot.  You can improve the look and feel of your video by understanding some basic techniques when using video equipment.  There are many different elements that work together to give your video the look and feel you are striving to create. During this session we will introduce students to best practices when shooting including lighting, miking, shooting and basics of setting your scene.

Quick & Easy Video

Description

With the rise of YouTube, everyone wants to create videos but most people don’t realize how much time and effort it takes to edit a video.  In some cases, creating a video isn’t about telling a new story but it could be used for reflection, oral language exams, critique and other options.  These videos can be shot on a simple Flip Camera and uploaded directly to YouTube or Moodle for viewing.  If a small amount of editing is needed, Quicktime Pro is a great option compared to IMovie.
