MICROTUBE

MICROTUBE is a website where students can submit short video clips that explain microeconomic concepts, effects, or theorems.

The basic idea underlying the MICROTUBE project is very simple: Students of economics produce video clips for students of economics. If these clips are worthwhile to watch, all the better. But how to implement such an idea? After some initial discussions with experts from the media services at the University of Zurich, it was agreed that it would be advisable to invest the available time in a small number of clips (rather than having too many). So a plan was made. A script was written, a casting organized, and locations were selected. Two camera teams worked in parallel over an extremely dense offsite weekend. And then, following weeks of cutting and fine-tuning, we ultimately arrived at the clips that are shown on this website. The MICROTUBE team hopes these clips will be (or have been) enjoyable for you!

Acknowledgement. This e-learning project was made possible by the generous support of the Initiate Interactive Learning (IIL) at the University of Zurich during the years 2007 and 2008. The website was designed and realized by Michael Hohl. The MICROTUBE project is an original idea of Christian Ewerhart.

The Nature of Interaction in Educational Videoconferencing

This is a Master of Education thesis from 1999 by Carol Daunt. The study investigated the nature of interaction that can be achieved in educational videoconferencing and what adaptations (if any) to teaching and learning strategies are necessary. In particular it examines the following:
1. What impact does the technology have on the interactions?
2. Do lecturers have to make adaptations to teaching strategies?
3. Do students have to make adaptations to learning strategies?
4. Can a ‘dialogical’ approach be used effectively in videoconferencing?

The Freesound Project

The Freesound Project is a collaborative database of Creative Commons licensed sounds. Freesound focusses only on sound, not songs.
The Freesound Project aims to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, bleeps, ... released under the Creative Commons Sampling Plus License. The Freesound Project provides new and interesting ways of accessing these samples, allowing users to
• browse the sounds in new ways using keywords, a "sounds-like" type of browsing and more
• up and download sounds to and from the database, under the same creative commons license
• interact with fellow sound-artists
The project also aims to create an open database of sounds that can also be used for scientific research.

Untold Stories

Untold Stories: Learning with Digital Stories (UntoldStory), is a project under the European Commission Lifelong Learning Programme focusing on the provision by public libraries and museums of informal learning opportunities for migrant communities in specific regions of four countries (Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany and Greece), through shared Digital Storytelling, utilising the potential of new Web 2.0 technologies.

Digital Stories usually entail the creation by an individual or group of a short ‘digital movie’ integrating images, text, and sound with narration.

Untold Stories enables individuals and groups from migrant communities to create, store, promote and share Digital Stories which reflect their experiences in their adopted country.

The website lists the stories in a repository and also provides a 'Toolbox' with 'Cookbooks' in several languages, which are in fact manuals: 'In order to help you with your digital story, our team has prepared a detailed manual that would guide you through the whole process of digital storytelling. This guide has information that covers the concept of storytelling itself as well as the technical aspects of it: images, sound,video edition, conversion to FlashVideo format.' One of those cookbooks is the English one: http://www.untoldstories.eu/eng/content/download/470/3990/file/COOKBOOK%...
