This is where you will find your weekly workout or tip that we want you to try for the week. We all believe that much success can be achieved by simply teaching through the announcements!

One of the best new Web 2.0 tools I discovered this semester was sent to me from Lydia and Aaron Richmond. This website is my.brainshark.com. It is a very simple tool, similar to Jing/Screencast that allows you to upload a power point and narrate the power point using a microphone or your telephone. It provides an html code perfect for course content and announcement embedding.
It is so easy to use, and in just a few minutes, you can create an engaging announcement. Check out the presentation below for more details – it was created in Brainshark.
