Week#11 - Video Production & Copyright-friendly Media


Michael Wesch is a professor of cultural anthropology at Kansas State University.   I first became aware of  his YouTube videos in 2007 when I was webcasting away at EdTechTalk.  They look ancient now, but at the time, his 'The Machine is Us/ing Us and A Vision of Students Today were pretty cutting edge. 

In any event, he just published a video with some useful ideas and resources for teachers who are producing videos for online learning.

I encourage you to check out (at least the first seven minutes) of
