A Lightboard Studio to Record Professional-Looking Educative Videos Simply and Rapidly

Published February 16, 2020  |  Chemistry

Caroline Cormier Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau

Do you know Lightboard studios? They are video recording studios where teachers record themselves through a pane of glass on which they write. An application then inverts the picture so that even if the teacher is writing from their left to their right, the text can be read clearly in the video. As a bonus: a clever lighting system makes the fluorescent ink used look even more impactful.

A Program-Specific Approach to Note Taking in the Digital Era

Published February 28, 2020  |  Applied Arts

Mathieu Plasse Teacher, Cégep de Sainte-Foy

In the industry graphic designers need to know, master, and constantly use emerging software and technologies. This is inevitably reflected in the classrooms of graphic design students. As graphic design teachers at Cégep de Sainte-Foy, in a laptop program, my colleague Anne-Claire Delisle and I have created a flexible way for our students to take notes on the computers that they all have in the classroom. We wanted each student’s notes to reflect their individuality. By coming up with their own notes, the students are obligated to invest themselves in their studies and better integrate the content.

Transition to Electronic Marking with iAnnotate

Published February 13, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

Are you feeling ready to make the move to correcting assignments electronically? Are you overwhelmed by the number of tools that exist? This article will explain one teacher’s experience with an application she has been using for several years. Anna Dera, a Biology Teacher at CEGEP Champlain St. Lawrence wanted a tool that made the transition to marking electronically simple; something that allowed her to continue writing notes, “by hand”. She began marking electronically on a laptop with a touch screen and a special stylus pen. Soon after, she started using an iPad, and in her search for an application that would allow her to continue this new electronic marking technique, she discovered iAnnotate, which has remained her marking tool of choice for over 6 years.

The cost to produce a video has diminished with the arrival of a number of free software tools and services that are provided for free to users. What follows is a proposition for a short workflow to create video tutorials using open source software and free services.

Published November 30, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Orzu Kamolova Moodle Consultant, DECclic
Audrey Corbeil Editor, Profweb
Michel Cloutier Educational Advisor, CERAC Drummondville

At the Sommet sur l’Enseignement supérieur, in February 2013, it was announced that four CERACs (Centre d’expertise en reconnaissance des acquis et des compétences) would be created within the college network. The CEGEPs awarded a CERAC were: Cégep de Drummondville, Cégep de Ste-Foy, Cégep Marie-Victorin and Champlain Regional College. Over the last year, my colleagues and I have worked to design and develop a virtual space for communication and collaboration between these centers using Moodle (LMS). The goal was to create and support an online community of practice. The platform provides a space to bring together hundreds of pedagogical advisors in Recognition of Acquired Competencies (RAC), nearly twenty employees of the four CERACs and representatives from MESRS (Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur, de la Recherche et de la Science).

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Learning Technology Advisor, Collège Sainte-Anne
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne

The active learning methods have in common of placing the students in the middle of the learning process. Their teachers can then also think about giving them a role in the planning of the evaluation. Active learning is inspired by real-life contexts that are meaningful for the students, which can increase their level of motivation for the tasks that are suggested to them. It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
