To start this FLC, the cohort will consider the goals they wish to achieve by the end of this training. The facilitator will use this opportunity to outline the plan for this course and, considering the goals of the participants, prepare the group to move forward with the Lynda.com Course Integration FLC.
The cohort will begin exploring lynda.ou.edu to become more familiar with the website and the content available to students, faculty and staff. During this time, each participant will learn the process of curating Lynda.com content and work towards building playlists to support their students. Learning the Lynda.com playlist curation workflow, from setting an instructional goal for a playlist to integrating it into course materials, will serve as foundational knowledge for the remainder of the FLC.
In addition to these technical skills, the cohort will explore best practices of building a playlist and discuss the pedagogical aspects of using Lynda.com content in the classroom. This discussion will lead the cohort from the topic of playlist curation to next session, involving user management and assignments.
