Ace! I love it when things fix themselves. Thanks for the help with this Alison.
Mark Osborne tells me we can now embed sound and video files too. Time to get some example shots for the film techniques added, awesome! Hoping to get some students here contributing to the litgloss next term too.
I think it fixed itself. Agree, it's wonderful that we can easily add video.
Great idea to get your students involved. I'm thinking along the same lines. I teach an intro stats class. They will be doing a pretty open-ended class project at the end of the year (starting in about a month). A few weeks ago, I showed them the film A vision of students today, by Michael Wesch and his spring 2007 students. In our discussion afterwards, I suggested that a good way to combat the irrelevancy of education today is for students to help generate the content, So, one option for a final project is to leave a legacy, that is, create something to help others learn statistics (a lab, an applet, video explanations...).
We now have the option to use the Rich Editor for editing purposes. I think many digital natives would find this pretty intuitive and might not even need much training. But there is training available, WikiEducator Rich Text Editor Tutorials, if needed.
