Karen Costa, an adjunct faculty member at Mount Wachusett Community College and Columbia Southern University, recently wrote a glowing testimonial explaining the benefits of using Collaaj eLearning video platform for her online lecture capture and how it has enabled her to easily create eLearning videos and video tutorials for more effective teaching and communication with students.
"A couple of semesters ago I was looking for a product that would allow me to improve my online lecture capabilities. The director of online learning at my community college pointed me toward Collaaj. I was able to download and begin using it within minutes because of its simplicity,” Costa says. “My primary reason for purchasing Collaaj was to improve my online lecture capacity as a way to keep my students engaged in online coursework. With Collaaj, I can create video lectures that include screenshots as well as webcam and voice. I am in the process of converting all of my old, stale lectures into video lectures and the students have been very receptive.”
Costa says she also uses Collaaj regularly when posting weekly announcements to her online courses. “This is a great way to check in with my students and show them my enthusiasm about the course through my videos,” she says.
Costa also now uses Collaaj in ways she hadn’t intended when she first signed up. “I now use Collaaj regularly to demonstrate how to use BlackBoard with videos. For new students who have a tough time figuring out how to post to a discussion board or submit assignments, I can create a personalized video walking them through that process. Students always comment to me that as soon as they see my videos, everything clicks. This is a great way to interact with students who learn better visually than through writing and reading,” she says.
As an online professor, Costa believes Collaaj is an invaluable resource. “Its ease of use allows me to teach and communicate more effectively with my students. I now use Collaaj several times a week in all of my courses and I'm not sure how I ever lived without it,” she says. “I highly recommend Collaaj to faculty looking to improve their courses.”
