We’ve had a great round of EMP participants in the fall semester, and are trying to improve their visibility and celebrate their success by creating a new page to feature all the OER’s on the site. This post will be a brief summary of the FAll 2015 cohort with links to the various projects.
Cheryl Geisler – SIAT
Cheryl’s media project was created in Prezi and is being used as an online resource in her class but at this time has not been made public, or openly available. She used Audacity for audio editing, and the Lynda.com tutorials that are freely available to SFU educators from the Library. Images from Open Clipart were included, and music from Sweet wave audio (need a link) tied it all together.
John Welch – Resources and Environmental Management
John has used his time with EdMedia to explore video production for iPINCH research initiative. He has been getting familiar with Adobe Premiere pro in preparation to produce an ongoing series of videos for upcoming webinars they are delivering. John has shared some of his take-aways from the EMP program with us.
Tara McFarlane – ISTL
Designed and built her infographic using http://piktochart.com/
Brainstormed using hand drawn sketches (yay ‘going visual’!) and iterated her design with multiple points of feedback. Was somewhat limited to the free features of piktochart.

Planning an online, media rich course and has begun with a proposal for a bigger project.
