New promotional materials

Hi again!
Just to let you all know that the team at Reading are in the process of developing a set of new promotional materials, which will primarily focus on the use of video for feedback, rather than on the ASSET project. This will include a series of A5 flyers, an A4 ‘how to’ guide (for Reading staff), a new banner, poster, postcards and we are also investigating USB drives and pens.PDFs of all of these will be made available on the website when they are finalised.
I will be updating the website so that it is ‘complete’ by the end of the project, so please let me know if you think of anything that should be made available on there or you would like to see on there

Quick Update

Hey everyone!
Sorry for the long silense…I just realised that the last update I made was in April!
As you can see from Karstens last post, we are making progress with the new ‘framework’…videos play fine in Redgloo, and Karsten has now got them working pretty much OK in Blackboard too. We are meeting with the CDoTL team tomorrow to discuss the best way to provide help aand support for this new system. After this Karsten and I will be setting to work creating the videos and support documents for staff and students.
We had 2 focus groups back in April with a total of 5 people attending – I will send the mp3 and rough transcripts to those who want them – just email me! Although unfortunately the audio recording quality isn’t brilliant…
Today we sent out a case study pro-forma to 5 staff memebers who used ASSET, so I hope to have their videos up on the website sometime in July.
We are now starting to prepare for a meeting with pilot staff and others involved int he project to give them an update on where we are with the new Blackboard framework, and also to tell them about how the project has gone, and show them some of the data we have collected, I will try and let you all know how it went…
I think that’s about it for now…

Student focus groups

With the start of the new term we decided to have one last go at recruiting students for two focus groups (one yesterday and one on Tuesday next week), and have been successful! We had 4 student sattend yesterday, and are expecting 3 students to attent the one on Tuesday!
I will be emailing the team a copy of the mp3 from these next week, so hopefully we will be able to gather some richer data from these two meetings.
 

Website and surveys

Just another quick update on what we’ve been upto…
The website has been undergoing a bit of a transformation, as we’ve been working hard to update it with everything thatthe team has been doing in the last 18 months – I’ve pretty much finished this now…with the team photo taken at today’s meeting being added to the Project team page!
We have also now closed the student survey, and have just started to look at this data – initial impressions are good…and more about this will go up on the website as and when we have it! The staff survey is still open at the moment, and we will be trying to get the last few responses for this before too long…

A quick update on the website…

I just wanted to post a quick update on the website. I have now finished most of the pages, although there are still a few that I’m working on, and will hopefully have these finished in the next couple of weeks. You may see that there are now a lot more documents online, this was initially needed for the final report to JISC, but I hope that this will provide useful to visitors to the site as well.
Please let me know if there is anything else that I should add (or if you spot a mistake!)

Southampton and the new website…

On Wednesday 10th Feb, I attended a Project Assembly at Southampton for thee-Assessment in Higher Education (EASiHE) project. During the day we explored Higher Learning Objectives, and how these can be tested using multiple choice type questions, with the attendees drawing up a list of Do’s and Don’ts, which will be incorporated into a booklet being produced by the project (I’ll let the team know when I receive this!).
We are also re-developing the current ASSET website, adding new sections and content about the progress of the pilots, staff and students thoughts about using video for feedback, and the out puts of the project so far….if you have any ideas/suggestions please let me know!

Quick Update

Hi Everyone! I just thought I should post a quick update to let you all know what’s been going on the last few weeks…. firstly we are running our last two staff focus groups (we had one today and have one tomorrow), although we will be having meetings with other staff members who were unable to attend. we have also sent out the staff post-use survey – so will hopefully have this data available soon!Secondly we have now sent out the student post-use survey (this was sent yesterday), and we have also sent out an invite to students to attend a focus group in mid-February. So hopefully we will soon have the data we need to assess both Staff and Student enagaemnt with the resource (and video feedback)! 

Birmingham meeting

Great that Karsten will be there as Holger is coming too and perhaps they can talk techie together ;o) I have found a really useful source of student work that has been marked up by assessors and we are currently making videos of this material. My BR work is obviously on a small scale so it would be good to tag along with your presentation and we could contribute some of the videos we’re producing which you can use eventually anyway.
