Three SRJC faculty share how they record whiteboard presentations using apps called ShowMe and Doceri, a ViewSonic display panel, and the World Wide Whiteboard available in Canvas. With these tools, you can create hand-drawn lessons, presentations, and graphics and save them as images or video screencasts.
Physics faculty Saska Gjorgjievska and Chemistry faculty Andrea Chase share whiteboard videos they created with apps on their iPads. Spanish faculty Araceli Osorio shows how she used a ViewSonic display in the SRJC Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning to screen record an activity with her students.
SRJC Instructional Accessibility Specialist Corrine Haverinen demonstrates how to use the Universal Design Online Content Inspection Tool or UDOIT to identify accessibility issues in canvas courses from within Canvas.
