Learning On Demand: Educational videos for the Elon community

Posted on: January 20, 2015 | By: Samantha Allen | Filed under: Tech Tips

lod-logoLearning On Demand, a new website released by the Office of the Provost and Teaching and Learning Technologies, is an archive of educational videos produced by Elon’s faculty, staff, and students.  This learning resource aggregates videos from campus events like Numen Lumen reflections, panel discussions, and popular guest speakers, as well as offers instructional videos,  tutorials, and other educational material.

“There was a need to bring it all under one roof,  
make the content easier to access so you don’t need to hunt and search.”  
– Maurice Levesque,
Associate Provost for Assessment and Academic Operations

 

Did you miss the event?

Elon students and faculty are busy people. With the number of events going on throughout the week, it’s common to miss a speaker you were really excited about.  With Learning On Demand, you can watch the event you missed!

Self-guided learning

Whether you want some help learning to speak German, or would like to know more about Taoism from Professor L.D. Russell, Learning On Demand has it. Easy to navigate, you can browse by category, series, or tags. Some categories include Arts & Humanities, Diversity & Global Engagement, and Social Sciences.

“In the end, it helps the community engage better.  
There are only so many hours in the day,” says Dr. Levesque.
