Online forums offer a way of enhancing student engagement by exchanging ideas and questions. Yet, the problems associated with encouraging and supporting student participation remain. This interactive LITEbox workshop seeks to explore:
- Whether new, freely available online multimedia message walls such as Linoit and Padlet address any of the perceived short comings of forums
- How new, freely available online multimedia message walls such as Linoit and Padlet can offer alternative ways of collating students' thoughts, ideas and questions to stimulate learning and feedback.
Before the workshop we invite you to watch this short video of staff reflecting on their utilisation of Linoit and Padlet https://vimeo.com/141824889 and share your experiences, insights, concerns or queries on our specially designed multimedia walls where we will discuss the key issues as part of the workshop on the boards:
We will also use the workshop to develop a community of practice whereby participants share their ideas and work together to design learning activities that embed online multimedia message walls in order to overcome identified pedagogic problems and/or ensure students' learning needs are met.
