UAB Web 2.0 Information

Darcy DiNucci first coined the term Web 2.0 in the article "Fragmented Future" in a 1999 edition of Print magazine, in which she predicted that collaboration and interactivity would be the key to the web of the future. Websites at the end of the 20th century were still largely non-interactive and contained static web content, which DiNucci refered to as the "embryonic web". The term really took wing at the 2004 O'Reilly Media Conference, in which open-source advocate Tim O'Reilly promoted the idea. Web 2.0 refers to a broad range of web-based applications that emphasize collaboration and information-sharing. Many online communities, hosted web sites, social networking platforms, video-sharing sites, wikis, blogs, mashups (web pages that dynamically draw data from a variety of different sources, such as databases) and folksonomies (knowledge bases generated from collaborative tagging or indexing) make up the current world of Web 2.0.

Though it is debatable whether Web 2.0 is the starting point of a truly different Internet, applications developed for social interaction clearly marks a strong move from non-interactive, static web sites, and from websites from which a single entity broadcasts static information, to websites for which information is dynamically, socially constructed and streamed.

For educators, Web 2.0 may provide a different, and in many ways improved, means of teaching and learning. Strongly held principles of student-centered, collaborative learning are part and parcel of Web 2.0's intent to create a democratic web, in which all have a voice and a part in knowlege building. This page contains information about and some examples of Web 2.0 technologies, as well as contact information for experienced users of these technologies.

ePortfolios

UAB ePortfolio by eInstruction Logo

At UAB, "We envision students using an electronic portfolio as an integral part of their education to reflect on learning, to integrate their knowledge, to learn more deeply, to shape curricular choices and goals, and to showcase skills and accomplishments." (University of Alabama at Birmingham, Workshop, February, 2008).


An ePortfolio (electronic portfolio) is a purposeful and meaningful collection of work which can include text and media files. Several portfolios can be created to serve different purposes. Each ePortfolio has a purpose and is formatted by its owner to match designated requirements.

Students can showcase skills and accomplishments for prospective employers or entrance to graduate/professional programs. The ePortfolio can also serve as a personal archive of documents.

Used in a course or program curriculum, ePortfolios can demonstrate student's achievement of required course or program competencies/outcomes as well as the process of getting there.

UAB has selected TaskStream as the campus supported ePortfolio solution. For more information about TaskStream and to setup an account contact Terry Harrington in UAB Instructional Technology (tharring@uab.edu 205-934-0417).

To participate in the "ePortfolios: A Hands-On Introduction" event, please visit the Training and Educational Offerings page for a listing of session dates and times.

    Media Services for Academic Courses

    Instructional Technology provides media production and streaming services at no cost to faculty teaching academic courses (must be for material associated with an ACTIVE Banner course).  We offer video sessions, creation of synchronized and unsynchronized video presentations, audio conversion and streaming, and DVD/CD creation and conversions. To request media production services please click on the link to the request form below. 

    Media Production Request Form - Request Services Now

    NOTE: Live streaming and archived on-demand streaming services "for-fee" for faculty/staff who are using the service for training, events or community based education initiatives are also available through UAB IT. Click here for more information on the for-fee services.

     

    Streaming media and blended learning is a mixture or combination of instructional technology with actual job tasks in order to create a harmonious effect of learning and working via the internet.
     
    Streaming media technology enables the real time or on demand distribution of audio, video and multimedia on the Internet. Streaming media is the simultaneous transfer of digital media (video, voice and data/slides) so that it is received as a continuous real-time stream. Streamed data is transmitted by a server application and received and displayed in real-time by client applications. These applications can start displaying video or playing back audio as soon as enough data has been received and stored in the receiving station's buffer. A streamed file is simultaneously downloaded and viewed, but leaves behind no physical file on the viewer's machine.
     
    The point is that blended learning and streaming media means different things to different people, which illustrates its widely untapped potential; so therefore, blended learning is a great way to initiate an organization into learning because it benefits learners, the training staff, and the organization's bottom line. It allows organizations to gradually move learners from traditional classrooms in small steps, making change easier to accept with streaming media. Working in a blended environment enables instructors to help their students to develop the skills needed for blended learning in small increments. Training professionals can move small sections online as the needed learning skills are developed.
    Blended learning and streaming media allows organizations to supplement or compliment existing courseware rather than replace it.
     

    Streaming Media products can be grouped into one of four types.

     
    Audio Presentation - An audio presentation has only an audio component. (EX: Streaming web radio station) 
     
    Video Presentation - A video presentation has only a video component. (EX: Streaming a video of an activity or process to present an example in support of a lecture or online training situation.) 
     
    Unsynchronized Presentation - An unsynchronized presentation has two or more media components (ie: Audio, Video) that have been captured and transmitted as a single stream. Since all elements are in a single file there is little or no control over the individual components. The resulting file is usually quite large resulting in transmission problems. 
     
    Synchronized Presentation - A synchronized presentation has two or more media components (ie: Audio, Video, Data/Slides) that are transmitted simultaneously. These components are linked/synchronized by adding synchronization points or timing points. If for some reason the media components are received out of sequence, the streaming software maintains or restores the presentation synchronization by simply matching the timing points. Since all elements are in separate files they can be transmitted as individual streams there is much more control over the individual components. The resulting file is usually much smaller thereby reducing transmission bandwidth requirements.

    ePortfolios: A Hands-On Introduction

    An ePortfolio (electronic portfolio) is a purposeful and meaningful collection of work which can include text and media files.

    Several portfolios can be created to serve different purposes. Each is formatted by its owner to match designated requirements. Students can showcase skills and accomplishments for prospective employers or entrance to graduate/professional programs. The ePortfolio can also serve as a personal archive of documents. Used in a course or program curriculum, ePortfolios can demonstrate student's achievement of required course or program competencies/outcomes as well as the process of getting there.
