After an unexpectedly long break, our community of practice for educational media is back! On Tuesday August 30, our 11th meet-up took place and as always, we’ve got the recordings and a quick recap for anyone who missed out.
A conversation: Learning content videos and student engagement
We kicked things off with something a little bit different. Rather than a presentation, we had a conversation with Rina Dhillon from the Accounting Discipline Group. Rina walked us through a Canvas module for her subject Accounting Business and Society, the fantastic implementation of video, and the pedagogical techniques used. Rina’s videos were recorded in the LX.lab’s Self-Recording Studio, which can be booked by UTS staff.

Goodbye Echo360: Everything you need to know
Our next presenter came with a short but important message from Donovan Stone and the LX.lab. In the recording below, Donovan discusses how Echo360 is being decommissioned. So if you’ve got any recordings stored there, you have until the end of 2022 to download your videos. After that, it may be lost for good! For more information be sure to check out this blog about saying goodbye Echo360, and this blog on how to access your content.
Saving time and creating connection with video feedback & screen sharing
Our final presenter was another LX.lab team member, Marty van de Weyer, who is a passionate advocate for video feedback. In addition to this wonderful presentation, Marty has written extensively on this topic via the UTS Futures Blog. Here’s a few blogs for those interested in reading more about using video for student feedback:
• Save time and create connection – take the video feedback challenge!
• Upgrade your video feedback with screen share
Here’s also an additional resource that’s worth checking out:

We had a great time and would like to thank our speakers for their insights, as well as everyone who attended the events. Our next event is going to be the last for 2022, and we aim to do these much more regularly in 2023! Be sure to register to UTS Video Meetups #12 down below.
