lynda.com to host a free webinar on online learning

This week, lynda.com presents a free webinar for educators as well as corporate and government trainers. In Online learning: How video changes and enhances the way we learn, discover how a great online video addresses the “why” of each lesson, presents the big picture of the subject matter, and supports the big-picture idea with granular details and steps.

In the last three decades, education has moved beyond the four walls of the classroom to the infinite possibilities of the Internet. Training resources using rich media are everywhere: YouTube, Vimeo, Open Education Resources, lecture capture inside learning management systems, and third-party rich media libraries.

Educator and digital media expert Laurie Burruss leads our free webinar, explaining how these factors affect our learning:

• transcripts and closed-captioning

• playback controls

• anywhere/anytime access

• personalization and customization

• repetition and failure in a private setting
