Our staff at LeCroy is working hard to bring you stories and announcements that matter to members of the DCCCD. Check in with us from day-to-day and learn more about new tech, important legislation, special projects, community partnerships or remarkable achievements and look for features from special contributors about what’s happening in classrooms across the district.
Last year, Project Manager Jesus Moreno programmed and developed the Stream It video service. Recently, he’s built in IBM Watson closed captioning services, which has proven to be successful.
“[Stream It] is responsive, so if I access it on my desktop or on my mobile device, I don’t have to have multiple formats,” Moreno said. “It’s just one and done. Everything flows.”
More than 50 people in person and 40-plus institutions streaming online were treated to valuable information from various experts about accreditation and its impact on distance learning last Friday.
NUTN and WCET collaborated on the event, which North Lake College hosted.
While developing new products for DCCCD, the goal for Project Manager Jesus Moreno and Producer Michael Coleman is to make it as easy for the consumer to use as possible. The two have been working for almost two months to do just that with Google Cardboard.
March 7-11 is Open Education Week, a global event aiming to “raise awareness of free and open sharing in education and the benefits they bring” to both students and instructors.
A number of instructors across the District already use open educational resources in their courses and some Ready2Go courses have completely done away with the need for students to purchase any materials by adopting these kinds of resources.
