In this week's Periscope session with my Introduction to Ethics students, I decided to spend about half the time on an autopsy of their latest quiz. The median score was quite a bit lower than I expected, so I thought I could show them the questions that the majority of the class missed, and diagnose the "likely cause of death" in each case. The autopsy starts at about 13:05.
It took me a little longer than I expected to put together the slides for projecting the questions in the background. And I think you have to replay it fullscreen or the text is too small. Probably need a wide angle lens. But other than that, I'm pretty pleased with how this went. I think that it might lead to some needed self-care on the part of the students, as well as insight into what wasn't working in their preparation for the quizzes. We shall see...
And each week I seem to find new applications for using Periscope in my online courses. I like the flexibility of having an impromptu broadcast and knowing that (a) it notifies the students immediately via Twitter and (b) I can download the broadcast, edit it, and make it available for replay with very little time spent (the processing and uploading all takes place in the background while I'm working on something else).
So the Great Periscope Experiment of weekly live broadcasts to my online students will continue!
