M&L webinar: New assessment strategies in the media-rich class

15 January 2015 15:00 -16:00 CET

An increasing number of universities globally are expanding their use of videos and visual media to support their course delivery.

In this webinar, researchers / practitioners from the North American and European contexts outline and discuss the interface between assessment and video use in media-rich learning environments.
