Media Magic Using Images in Other Mediums By Anthony Critchley (Winstanley College)
Q Project – Chemistry Clips for Dangerous Experiments Video Clips readily accessible from the College Intranet HTML files created by Chemistry teacher using Microsoft FrontPage View Clips
Why HTML? Adding video clips to PowerPoint can create huge file sizes Accessible to the students via the college intranet from home at anytime
How we use the materials Learners – Valuable reference/learning material available to them via the college intranet, which is also accessible from home via a password Staff – The project has inspired departments to follow suit. Staff are becoming more creative in their ideas on how to improve the teaching & learning experience using IT as a tool. College – Winstanley College will benefit greatly as a learning organisation as students are able to access quality materials.
