A quick video this morning on how I’m remixing the OER textbook The American Yawp for my own US II survey this semester. The original chapter is available here and my revision is here (comment using Hypothesis and I’ll revise as appropriate).
Here’s a short (<10 min) video about using Hypothesis in both my online and in-person classes, which led to some thoughts about the value of online teaching:
I made a quick video for my summer American Environmental History online students, describing Hypothes.is and how to get started:
Another History in 5-or-so Minutes episode about editing Openstax OER US History textbook. Is my beef style or substance? You decide.
I was going to spend five or six minutes talking about improving the style of a very clunky section of the Openstax OER text as I remix it for my spring class. Then I had to add another six minutes to address some problems I had with the substance.
This is a 12-ish minute long episode of History in 5-or-so Minutes, in vlog format this time, in which I talk about beginning to rewrite the Openstax US History textbook. I’m going to use this as the basis of a US History I class this spring, but not before I revise it sunstantially. I’ll discuss those revisions chapter by chapter as I rewrite or as I create PowerPoint lectures and videos using the content.
