How a Real Instructor Uses Technology in His Course

Posted by Jessica Carmichael on 3/24/14 2:14 PM

By now, you have probably heard about new, innovative resources that are available to help instructors manage their courses and engage students in the learning process. You may have read about these resources in a recent product catalog, watched an online video showcasing how the resources work, or been given a one-on-one demonstration from your sales representative. While these resources are proven to be effective, it is hard for one to understand the benefits without trying them out or seeing how someone else uses the tools in their own course.

David Gillespie, a fire fighter and program coordinator for Fleming College in Canada, recently posted a video on YouTube to show the president of his community college how he is using technology in their fire fighter program. Check out Gillespie's video below to see how he uses technology to manage his course efficiently and keep his students interested in the material. 

Thank you for sharing this video, David. Fun fact: "QR" stands for "Quick Response!"
