Learning Glass Videos

Latrice worked with the UAF CTL Media Studio to create Learning Glass videos for her content. Many instructors who make heavy use of the whiteboard in their face-to-face classes really enjoy using the Learning Glass, and find it a natural fit for their teaching style. Latrice was a natural at adapting her whiteboard style to a new format.

Assessments that require students to show their work, especially if there are equations or other specialized notation involved has been a stumbling block for many online educators. Latrice has taken advantage of UAF’s institutional license for Gradescope, a tool that greatly improves the workflow for grading and organizing hand-written work digitally. It allows her to assign worksheets with complex, multi-step problems, and give detailed feedback at each step of the way. (Check out what CTL has to say about Gradescope!)
