This Learning to Teach Online http://bit.ly/d18ac5 case study aims to give you a basic understanding of the website http://flickr.com, by explaining how Lynette Zeeng from Swinburne University of Technology used it to teach photography in a blended (face-to-face and online) class. It discusses the benefits of using an online community for submitting, organizing and giving feedback on images, and the impact on student learning. Key issues surrounding pedagogic planning and teaching with Flickr that were encountered in this context of the case study will also be examined, highlighting the benefits and potential issues of adopting this approach.

Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
The video case study discusses the benefits of using an online community for submitting, organising and giving feedback on images, and the impact on student learning. Key issues surrounding pedagogic planning and teaching with Flickr that were encountered in this context of the case study will are examined, highlighting the benefits and potential issues of adopting this approach.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
The content is offered in easy to understand video format with examples of how to engage the students. It would be interesting to compare teaching with Flickr to teaching with Pinterest.
Proficiency in loading and managing images on Flickr.
Other Issues and Comments:
Flickr is a very useful tool for teaching-and the instructor takes time to speak about Creative Commons-this is a KEY point.
