My name is Mohammed Hayat and the tool I reviewed is called "MyBrainShark", I think I would use it as an online tool to teach speaking skills for university level students at Kuwait University

I have reviewed skype as a tool for distance learning. In the presentation I have focused on skypes video chat feature as well as some less common features of skype. Additionally, I have discussed how teaching using skype differs from teaching a face-to-face class.

Hi everyone,
I'm discussing Jing as a tool for learning about protein structure that would work in either a blended or distance class. Having watched the other videos, I realise I haven't actually talked much about how to use the software- but I show for a very specific context how a screencast of "pointing and talking" allows for active and collaborative learning:

This is a link to my video on the affordances of Facebook - for online -peer support/ sharing links to information and using create page (no personal id) to collate and present materials online - It is aimed at HS /University freshmen classes. I would use in a blended classroom context - using the presentation pages to help students research and share ideas in preparation for their discussion classes - so I would expect their pages to be general and linked to different weekly topics. ie* English at work, Education , Globalisation, Social Issues, Fashion etc.
The example given is a simpler HS topic ie Japanese food.

I have used dropbox only for my link (privacy & shots of UoM group pages) Apologies for quality - the file was too big so the only way to upload was to rerecorded from the screen using screenomatic.

My tool review is about the use of an ePortfolio that can be used within any online learning context. I've used it to demonstrate how it could potentially be used as a formative assessment tool alongside a process-writing assessment procedure.

Here is my review about using eyejot to help students' language speaking. When I record the video, my computer is a little bit slow, so the video is not fluent enough, apologies for that.

Thank you
