"I have a Bluetooth headset and I use screencast-o-matic to record on the smart board. It is free and web-based but paying the $15/yr is well worth it. You can instantly upload to YouTube or Google Docs or you can save it as a video file. It also has…"

Go to Sophia.org and there is actually a Flipped Class Certificate. Also in there, you can find me by using the search mechanism and email me directly. I can show you where a bunch of the support screencasts are that make a huge difference.…"

My students (chemistry) really have enjoyed the "experiment" of flipping. They have been very cooperative and patient as I have progressed through the learning curve. Another teacher (who teaches world religions) is also flipping and we presented to our faculty last week...sparked some interest..I showed the personal finances teacher today how to make a video, save, share it. We use google docs and there is a 45 minute allowance for time and no ads. I really like it much better than youtube. The google docs videos were introduced just when I needed them and have worked very well. I use a google docs sign in form with room for comments and a couple of solutions for sample problems. Checking the spreadsheet on my side makes for an easy access to who viewed, what problems they had and if they were understanding the material. Students also have to fill in notes that I provide as they watch the video. I use the smartboard recorder for both smartboard notes and / or powerpoints. For me this works better. I may try making videos with me in them but just voice for now seems to be okay. The girls really like this format of teaching and there is much less frustration on their part and much more interactivity in the classroom. I love it!! But like others have said...lots of work the first time around...but just think of next year!!
