Room A 201: Building and integrating interactive learning content in Moodle platform with H5P

Presenters: Patrizia Emery Birchler & Jue Wang Szilas & Patrick Roth, UNIGE
Timekeeper: Christelle Bozelle, UNIGE

H5P is becoming an increasingly interesting tool in creating, sharing and reusing the interactive learning content. After a testing period, the e-learning unit of the University of Geneva installed this authoring tool in the university Moodle platform and encouraged the teachers to use it from July 2019. In this tutorial, we will first introduce the selected functionalities of the tools H5P integrated in the Moodle platform, precisely interactive videos, question sets, drag and drop questions, multiple choice questions and presentations. We will then present several scenarios of video created for different didactical purposes. Our presentation will not only focus on how to build different content types, but also on how to best use the content in blended-learning or 100% distance teaching contexts.

After the presentation, we will invite the participants to create two types of interactive content (QCM, drag and drop question) in a video so that they can practise what they have learned in the presentation.

In the end, we share several scenario models to foster deep learning for discussion.


Room A 101: The potential of interactive video for more sustainable learning

Presenter: Pascal Schmidt, ETHZ
Timekeeper: Christelle Bozelle, UNIGE

Video has a huge potential for sustainable learning, but it also includes several challenges – such as misunderstanding video as abbreviation of learning processes. It is recommendable to provide tools to help students process the information and to monitor their own understanding. Therefore ETH has implemented a specialised video player inside Moodle, called "Interactive Video Suite (IVS)". Students can add comments, markers and answer questions inside the video. In this tutorial the didactical concept and the functions of this tool IVS will be presented. Common features to the tools H5P and the annotation tool of SWITCH will also be considered.

The learning/teaching method Social Video Learning combines the advantages of video learning with those of personal and direct exchange. Guided by tasks, the participants learn to look closely and to comment on relevant topics precisely in the video. These comments can be shared with the learning group and the teachers and discussed directly in the video. 

Teachers can use the students' comments and answers to gain important insights into their previous knowledge, misconceptions and understanding of principles and complex problems.


Room A 027: How much humor and nonsense are tolerable in university teaching? Animated introduction and instructional videos of the online-programme "Teaching Assistant Qualification Programme" at the University of Zurich

Session is cancelled. Presenter has the flu.

Presenter: Stefan Andreas Keller, UZH
Timekeeper: Carola Brunnbauer, PHZH

Being aware of the currently ongoing video hype within the educational sector, one can get mistrustful if many of these videos really contribute to the learner's benefit or rather may distract them. In the context of the online teaching assistant qualification programme "Start!" the Centre for University Teaching and Learning produced several animated videos that explicitly don't want to be too serious but nevertheless try to introduce into a subject and impart knowledge. The tutorial gives insights into the programme and the intentions and making of these videos.

The programme is aimed at all students at the University of Zurich, especially those who are currently teaching and those who intend to do so. It supports them in their commitment to teaching with practical, low-threshold basic didactic training courses. Following completion of the entire programme, participants receive attestation of their didactic skills. Students must pass at least six courses or workshops to successfully complete the programme.


Room A 022: Mobile studio recording solutions

Presenters: Matthew Goodman & Gilles Raimond, EPFL
Timekeeper: Nathalie Roth, SWITCH

In this tutorial Gilles Raimond and Matt Goodman from the EPFL's CEDE will demonstrate some of the different solutions we have for creating mobile studios. We will present various pieces of equipment from high-end mobile video recorders to screen capturing and editing options on iPads. By the end of the tutorial you'll have an idea of the setup required for taking your e-learning video productions on the road.
