Integrating Audio, Video, and Discussion Boards with Course Notes

As a biostatistics teacher I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about inverting the classroom and adding multimedia content. My first thought was to create YouTube videos corresponding to sections in my lecture notes. This typically entails recording the computer screen while going through slides, adding a voiceover. I realized that the maintenance of such videos is difficult, and this also creates a barrier to adding new content. In addition, the quality of the video image is lower than just having the student use a pdf viewer on the original notes. For those reasons I decided to create audio narration for the sections in the notes to largely capture what I would say during a live lecture. The audio mp3 files are stored on a local server and are streamed on demand when a study clicks on the audio icon…
