Temoa Knowledge Hub
Temoa is a knowledge hub that eases a public and multilingual catalog of Open Educational Resources (OER) which aims to support the education community to find those resources and materials that meet their needs for teaching and learning through a specialized and collaborative search system and social tools.
- It contains selected educational resources, described and evaluated by an academic community.
- Resources categorized by area of knowledge, educational level and language, among others.
- Provides a friendly search engine through intuitive filters.
- Allows the creation of communities around educational resources.
The resources, covering numerous subjects, are available in many formats including video.
Video Goes to School, Part I. Whether watching or recording, students find video engaging
"This is the first of a three-part series on the use of video in education. Part Two of the series focuses on the use of streaming video and other applications to enhance instruction. The series culminates in June 2005 with an in-depth look at how students are using today's technology tools to produce their own videos."
Project-based learning with multimedia
SRI International's Center for Technology in Learning evaluated the Challenge 2000 Multimedia Project from 1995 to 2000. The evaluation examined three aspects of the Multimedia Project: its dissemination across various schools and districts, its impact on teaching practice, and its effects on student achievement. This page is designed to offer the evaluation findings to specific audiences: Technology Coordinators and Administrators, Teachers, Students and Parents, Business Partners, and Researchers. There are also Quick Links to the full evaluation reports, slide presentations, research and evaluation tools, and related research into education and technology.

Broadband videoconferencing as a tool for learner-centred distance learning in higher education
This paper outlines the possibilities for using broadband videoconferencing within the larger context of changing the focus for teaching from the teacher to the learners. It also explores opportunities that might be created by this technology to facilitate learner-centred engagement in learning and to provide new opportunities for collaboration and support for students studying by the distance mode. As part of the wider discussion, it presents a decision-making framework for teachers to consider when integrating videoconferencing into their curriculum. The bandwidths possible from broadband Internet connection rather than the integrated services digital network transmission increase the richness of videoconferencing to a much closer approximation of natural communication, thus creating opportunities for more creative uses for the medium. The outcomes of trials undertaken at the University of New England during the last two years provide the basis for predicting the usefulness of the technology for learner-centered interactions when the majority of students are learning from locations quite remote from the main campus.

Große Gefühle: Bilder, Musik und Sprache im Film
Children and youth won’t stop watching TV because of critical media education. This age group hates nothing more than following orders when it comes to choosing a TV channel or a programme. Because of that, this text introduces three projects which take an action-oriented and not an analytical approach to the topic of “picture, language and music on screen”. Pupils get the chance to develop their own standards and simultaneously learn to be more aware of other standards. By producing their own soap-opera, by re-dubbing a sequence of a movie or by turning music into video they get the chance to experiment freely with both picture and sound.
