Media and Learning Association
On Thursday 5 February the M&L Association SIG on Lecture Capture & Video Use in HE will organise another webinar this time on "the creation of videos to support students’ learning".Videos are increasingly being used to support student learning with students either viewing videos or participating in the production of videos as part of their studies. This webinar will showcase two case studies from different parts in Europe (Finland & UK), where video is used to support, improve and activate student’s learning.

This first M&L webinar in the new year will take place on Thursday 15 January, 15:00 CET and will explore how media like videos or podcasts can be used as an alternative method to assess students.

Take part in a webinar open to everyone which will feature the winning entries in this year’s MEDEA Awards which are the Digital Prevention Platform and Un autre monde/Eine andere Welt. The Digital Prevention Platform, winner of the MEDEA Award for Professionally Produced Educational Media, is produced by Saffron Interacti
