Information and Computer Science Faculty: Blanca Polo, William Albritton, and Pete Gross are leading the effort in creating and sharing OER materials!
They created 78 short videos on a variety of computer science topics. The topics range from general information such as PowerPoint to more technical ones such as network security. Feel free to browse through the videos, which are available on the playlist.
The videos are licensed with a Creative Commons (CC BY NC ND) license, allowing anyone to use the videos as long as they are properly attributed. These videos may be linked to or embedded in your online course materials. If you need help with this, use our Technology One-on-One request form and one of the Educational Technologist will assist you.
If you are interested in creating your own microbytes or short videos, we encourage you to take advantage of the services of the Educational Media Center Video Production team who will work with you to create high quality OER resources for your students!

Each semester, the Educational Media Center offers video production services to instructors interested in creating short self-introduction videos. These videos can be used to attract students to take your course, as the first impression of who you are as a person and as an instructor, and as a way to spark learner’s intrigue that encourages students to want to learn more. Videos can be used for both in-person and online courses.
This semester, Betty Ickes (History), Kelly Kennedy (ESL), and Faustino Dagdag (Business), took advantage of the video recording services. They did such an outstanding job that we wanted to share their videos with you in the hopes that it will inspire you to create one for your class.
We have approximately 20 instructors who have recorded introduction videos and these are featured in the Video Library.
Your posted video can be embedded into your Google Site or sent by email to your students prior to the beginning of the semester.
We encourage you to consider doing an introduction video in the near future!
