[Using Sakai] Basic screen casts on how to use Sakai

I'm on a screencast kick. Well...more like a screencast search kick.

For those that don't know, I've been maintaining the sakaiproject.org
site for a month and answering general questions from new folks that
come to the sakaiproject.org web site. I was just asked a pretty basic
question that went something like:

"I just got Sakai installed on my machine and I logged in as the admin
user. Now what?"

I pointed him to confluence, Sakai Help and the reference docs
included with Sakai, but I really wanted to be able to point him to a
60-90 second screencast that showed how to add users, create a course
site and add some tools (the down and dirty basics) but I don't see
any of them out there. I googled for "Sakai Worksite Setup" videos and
saw my own setup for a portfolio site. Not exactly what I wanted!

I have a gut feeling that similar videos for setting up a gradebook,
creating and grading assignments and delivering a test (and probably a
million more) would be sweet little nuggets to highlight some Sakai
benefits for the new user or someone who is Sakai-curious. It's about
time our web site had it!

I could envision a section of the site about "the basics"
(assignments, tests and quizzes, gradebooks and discussion tools) and
a section for "advanced" uses (wikis, portfolios, blogs, podcasts,
etc.)

While the online text help is quite extensive and of high quality, I
believe that it may not be the best way to share that knowledge with
the general public.
I'm sure that the community has made some of this material. If we
haven't, I'd like to get some folks together that share some energy
around it and coordinate a new section of the site all about that. I'd
be happy to do it online or at the conference.

Re: [Using Sakai] [DG: Teaching & Learning] Basic screen casts on how to use Sakai

These may be of help: http://wiki.oucs.ox.ac.uk/weblearn/SakaiExistingDocumentation and http://wiki.oucs.ox.ac.uk/weblearn/SakaiReviewOfVideos 

We're about to launch into the production of 30+ screen casts over the summer.

Another useful resource may be weblearn.ox.ac.uk/info

Re: [Using Sakai] [DG: Teaching & Learning] Basic screen casts on how to use Sakai

There's also a great collection of tutorials / videos / screencasts  / etc. on Confluence in the End-User Working Group space: http://confluence.sakaiproject.org//x/DwAmAg

Adam, can you add your document(s) to this collection?

Hi Sean,

The IT Training group at IU has put together many Captivate feature demos, some with audio narration.  You can find the list here:

https://oncoursehelp.iu.edu/helptool/doc/arbl 

Some of them reference IU-specific functionality, but many of them apply to any instance of Sakai.

Just-in-time little online video tutorials are precious.  They work for Blackboard, Moodle, so why not Sakai?  I suggest a bunch of short, quick and task-specific, each, a couple of minutes long, plus a two or three of 10-minute long ones giving instructors and students a general overview; have also a set of longish ones designed for people with disabilities.

Do them in Jing, Camtasia Studio or for extra credit, in Adobe Captivate.

Lynda.com has two quality Moodle Essentials tutorials, one for instructors and one for students, about eight hours long each, but with that nice Lynda.com granular Table of Contents with dozens of links to each of the short little video nuggets.

Authoring LMS and other #EdTech screencasts, in my experience, is time very well spent. Very well spent.

Hi Sean,

        Here's some of what Brock University has produced posted on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/user/BrockCTLET#grid/user/89DA146E7342E8D0

        And here are the wiki articles we have with little screencasts/vignettes beside the text:  http://kumu.brocku.ca/sakai/Category:Video

        All the best.

Re: [Using Sakai] [DG: Teaching & Learning] Basic screen casts on how to use Sakai

In addition to the great collections cropping up here Sean, you might
consider shepherding working sessions at the Sakai conference in
Denver. Learning how to create effective screencasts would be a great
way to involve folks in the working session who do not consider
themselves developers, etc. Plus, I've already added it to the agenda
for you ;)
http://wiki.sakaiproject.org/display/CONF2010/Sakai+Working+Session+Start

http://openedpractices.org is already set up to become a repository of
resources like this if it makes sense to collect them there as
"resources" and point to the collection from the SP.org site.

Re: [Using Sakai] [DG: Teaching & Learning] Basic screen casts on how to use Sakai

I love all the material that is out there...but...

What I think we can aspire to create is a simple collection of videos
that address the "new user" who is interested in the software and has
visited the site for the first time.

My vision would be to have maybe 6 or 7 videos that walk someone who
is completely unfamiliar with Sakai through the first steps of some
basic tools, without any implementation specific points (integration
with your CM, auth systems, etc...no mentions of local support groups,
special worksite types or roles, etc.)

The format would be something along the lines of:
"Hello, I'm [your name] from [your college/company] and I'm going to
be showing you how easy it is to create a new course worksite (or
whatever) in Sakai. We are looking at a Sakai instance at [your
college], but everything I'm going to show you will be applicable to
your Sakai instance."

Then the walkthrough would pretty much touch base on the key points of
the embedded help. Not all encompassing, but enough to demonstrate the
tool's purpose and that the tool is not difficult to use.

Although it would be really easy for me to simply link to everything
that is out there, I'd like to first estimate the effort and interest
in making these simple screencasts. We could double dip on everyone's
experience, but I think the media would be unique for the web site.
Of course, if the commitment to produce something specific for this
unique audience isn't there, I can simply embed whatever is out there.
I think the results would be significantly different.

I've added a page to confluence with some initial ideas for how we
might structure any working group at the conference.

is completely unfamiliar with Sakai through the first steps of some

The format would be something along the lines of:

Re: [Using Sakai] [DG: Teaching & Learning] Basic screen casts on how to use Sakai

Sean,

 

Unfortunately none of my “training resources” team from Indiana University will be at Denver this year. I hope that some of the other IU folks may attend to learn more about the specs you have established. Although our Feature Demos are a little longer than the 60-90 seconds, they definitely meet many of the other criteria. (No intros to the people talking either ;-)

 

I’ll look forward to hearing the results of the working session.

I think the results would be significantly different.

Re: [Using Sakai] [DG: Teaching & Learning] Basic screen casts on how to use Sakai

This is a great idea.

I had been planning to do a couple of short videos introducting
Sakaibrary to my colleagues in any event, and would be happy to
contribute them. I'll be at the working session kickoff.
