Implementing lynda.com Online Training Library Campus Wide
With limited staff, tightened budgets, and the arrival of the "digital native" on the college campus, schools are looking for ways to meet training needs of faculty, students, and staff beyond the face-to-face classroom. A need exists for 24/7 online training that keeps up with changing technology. In addition, the solution must be cost-effective, able to be implemented within the university brand or portal, and complement the learning students already receive on campus.

Radford University Exercise, Sport and Health Education professors Drs. Angela Mickle and Michael Moore have been using iTunes U podcasts to distribute video to students learning to perform athletic training tests and exercises. Students in the program must learn to perform hundreds of tests, and podcasting provides a way to distribute instructor-produced videos to them in a way not possible before.
Short videos are created from still images and video (taken with student actors), text and voiceover using Apple's Final Cut Pro, and are then made available to the students in iTunes U. They can then be downloaded and viewed as often as needed until the student learns how to perform the tests. Further, the iPod makes it possible for students to take these materials with them anywhere, so that they can watch a given procedure being done while they attempt it themselves.
The Center for Learning Technologies, a unit of Distance Learning at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, invites qualified candidates to submit applications for the position of Instructional Technology Specialist.

Ask the Techies Internet TV show (VODcast) at Ohio University has started it's 3rd season. Everyone uses a personal computer, but many people find it more worthy of the name "personal confuser."
Ask the Techies breaks down that confusion via a mix of hosts and on-computer-screen video capture. The hosts not only explain the content but make the viewer feel comfortable with technology. This is an interactive show where people can “ask the techies” questions via e-mail. D.Lee Beard and his co-hosts then answer these viewer questions on camera with a full video explanation to make sure the viewers don't miss a thing.
Ask the Techies offers videos on demand that students of all ages including faculty and administrators can watch/listen to over and over again as often as needed for free (as well as commercial free!). Faculty can even link to our videos for course instruction.
