Discussion “Triggers”

I found it — the blog post from eLearning Connection that began my use of multimedia triggers for online discussions. I have just finished finding and adding in all the triggers (teasers? prompts? I’ve been calling them “ticklers”, which is more seductive) for my fall classes. These include:

An actor playing a Saxon upset at the Norman invasion, from the National Archives Learning Curve.


A QTRV of Canterbury Cathedral

An animation of throwing things while stationary and in motion from UNSW Physclips, Australia

Animations of the Western Front from the BBC


A video of the Sioux Ghost Dance performed for Buffalo Bill’s show from the Library of Congress

A 1950s fashion show

And this video of a computer game recreation of the Battle of Agincourt:

Should be interesting discussions this semester!
