iTunes U Accolades for OSU Enviro
Brian H. Lower, Associate Professor of Environmental Microbiology, teaches this course on-the-ground at Ohio State, and developed the first version of the iTunes U course.
In May 2015 Kylienne Clark, Professor Lower’s Instructional Designer, attended an iTunes U Bootcamp hosted by ODEE and redesigned the course into the current version.
What makes this course worthy of such a distinction? Our hunch is the variety of creative learning formats, thoughtfully arranged.
“The free and open learning experience contains a wide range of learning materials including instructional videos created by Dr. Lower, useful mobile apps, and an eBook,” said Cory Tressler, Associate Director of Learning programs.
The e-book Tressler mentions was created by Dr. Lower’s own students, who developed the book’s contents as demonstrations of their own learning.
“All of these resources are organized in a thoughtful, easy to follow way, so that learners of all ages throughout the world can learn about this important area of science.”
