5-minute eClips and Brief Hybrid Workshops

An "eClip" is a pre-recording produced as a single computer file. It may include a variety of media elements: sound, images, text, etc. A "brief hybrid workshop" is an activity usually less than 15 minutes that includes the use of one or more Internet-accessible eClips AND some other files, activities, documents, plans, guidelines, etc. It is intended to help a group of people produce or learn how to do something useful to them. Participants usually interact with each other and with a leader/presenter/facilitator during the activity. Steve Gilbert from the TLT Group is leading an effort to develop eClips and Brief Hybrid Worshops. See:
