In the EMP we discuss the Absorb, Do, Connect Learning Activities from the work of William Horton in E-Learning by Design:
“Activities are necessary to provoke learning experiences. Used in combination, learning activities can accomplish difficult learning objectives.” – William Horton
Absorb activities – read, listen and watch
Do activities – exercise newly acquired skills. Take action and practice!
Connect activities – Application to original course work…

Enjoy the recorded audio of Tony Bates presentation on Teaching in a Digital Age recorded at ETUG 2015. This documentary recording was recorded with a Zoom H2 stereo recorder at about 8 feet from the presenter. Having a lavaliere microphone directly on the speaker wasn’t an option for this session, so we used the H2 to give us a great documentary recording in a relatively quiet and controlled environment.
We used the Audacity audio editor to use EQ effects and add on custom EdMedia bumpers to introduce and close the player. The EdMedia bumpers were recorded in house using the Zoom H4n recorder. The presentation is all here!
