Slide 4: 

Louis

Slide 5: 

The synchronous time?

Slide 6: 

It’s initiated by the instructor.

Slide 7: 

Louis Marcus

Slide 8: 

Louis Marcus Zelda

Slide 9: 

The discussion boards?

Slide 10: 

Set up by the instructor.

Slide 11: 

When students meet in person, or talk to each other on the phone, is their behavior pre-scripted?

Slide 13: 

Even in well-designed online courses, how does this interaction happen?

Now … suppose …just suppose … : 

Now … suppose …just suppose …

Slide 22: 

Louis

Slide 23: 

Enter … Marcus.

Slide 24: 

Marcus is actually working on the same problem (page) as Louis. Marcus would not have gone to the discussion board because Marcus wasn’t having any trouble with the assignment.

Slide 25: 

Louis and Marcus can SEE that each other are there.

Slide 26: 

What Louis sees.

Slide 27: 

What Marcus sees.

Slide 28: 

Louis and Marcus now have several options for communication … text chat audio chat audio and video chat writing on screen sharing desktop using calculator using equation editor taking screenshots

Slide 29: 

Louis and Marcus now have several options for communication … text chat audio chat audio and video chat writing on screen sharing desktop using calculator using equation editor taking screenshots

Slide 30: 

simultaneously synchronous and asynchronous

Slide 31: 

contextual communication

Slide 34: 

non-linear page structures

Slide 36: 

demo

Slide 38: 

<1> Is it there yet?

Slide 39: 

yes and no

Slide 40: 

<2> What does it cost?

Slide 41: 

it depends if you can live with advertising: up to 5 vyewbooks … free 50 pages per book

Slide 42: 

<3> What can you do right now using VYEW?

Slide 43: 

online office hours every student can work on their own page simultaneously, you can jump between pages to see how they are doing (graphing calculator is a big plus)

Slide 44: 

sharing and grading essay-style work student makes a vyewbook, uploads their work, and shares the vyewbook with you … you grade the work (using voice comments and sticky notes) and they will instantly see the feedback

Slide 45: 

posting test solutions the contextual Q&A abilities make this a really nice platform for students to ask about specific steps they don’t understand

Slide 46: 

tutoring self-explanatory? < vyewbook for each level of class … students can see each other and the tutor >

Slide 47: 

use with Moodle VYEW can already integrate with Moodle (lucky you)

Slide 48: 

virtual whiteboards? assign problems to groups, each group works on their problem on a separate page during class … you can monitor their progress from your computer

Slide 49: 

<4> Where do I hope/think VYEW is going?

Slide 50: 

improved tools <1> buttons that re-index <2> improve graph tool <3> equation editor <4> ability to set page editing <5> properties <6> algorithmic and auto-grading math problems

Slide 51: 

holy grail of math virtual essay question grading <1> create a vyewbook <2> make a copy of book for each student <3> student completes essay work <4> virtually “collect” a single page from each student into one book <5> grade and feedback instantly pushes back to students’ pages

Slide 52: 

ability to import/integrate with “linear” existing content? < this may be a pipe dream, but I did say this is where I hope this is going >

Slide 53: 

self-paced courses? < since students can communicate both asynchronously and synchronously, perhaps this is the kind of platform we need for a course with open enrollment times >
