Multimedia Workshop @ Moodlemoot NZ 2013

The first day of the Moodlemoot involved workshops. I attended the Multimedia Workshop. Although I knew a lot of the content I gained a lot of useful information and ideas on how to increase the use of multimedia at school.(Link to Google Folder with un-edited notes and resources).

Why use multimedia?

People learn better from words and pictures than from words alone. Richard E. Mayer (link to You Tube clip). The Waikato dudes were saying the multimedia will make a bigger difference to learning for students then just words and pictures.

The easiest way to embed YouTube videos is to use the Moodle media icon in a page (or label, but see below for why not such a good idea). Moodle doc on using Moodle media to embed YouTube video. You can also add annotations and captions to your YouTube videos.
