Abstract

ClassroomSalon is a social commenting that embeds a group discussion into a shared text or video. Viewers can associate their comments with particular lines of a text or points on a video, and instructors can embed questions that students must answer by drawing on the text. In this presentation, one of ClassroomSalon's founders, Ananda Gunawardena, demonstrates recent updates to the interface, new PDF capabilities, and discusses ways faculty have used the tool to both foster and measure student engagement. Markus Kreuzer, a professor of political science at Villanova University, presents some concrete examples of how he has used Classroom Salon to foster discussion in graduate and under-graduate level courses and to embed assessment questions into a video for a flipped-classroom approach.
