Hello KDLT viewers.
If you have not seen the video, it is available here.
If you are interested in learning more about some of my grading strategies featured on KDLT, I have created a few Macromedia Flash demonstration videos that you can watch. These videos will teach you how to use active rubrics, macros, and other grading tricks to your, and your students', advantage. I have no way of tracking visitors, but I'd like to know who I'm reaching with my efforts, so if you found something of use or just have a comment or question, please drop me a note; my address is firstname.lastname@example.org
IThis video shows how to make an active rubric that is activated by a macro launched from a toolbar in Microsoft Word. Just ignore the active rubric part and you should be able to intuit how to record some keystrokes instead. One tip: never use the cut/copy/paste function while recording a macro. On the other hand, if you'd like to see an active rubric in action (not how to make one), click here.
If you would like to see a few of the videos I have made to teach my students, and in which I often embed in the macros for common errors, click here. Feel free to link to anything you find useful, but you would be better served if you make your own so that they suit your and your students' needs and so that you aren't reliant upon the stability of my page for your feedback to maintain its imminence.
Finally, I maintain a blog (not affiliated with DSU) which has some useful links and commentary. If you like what I'm up to, you definitely need too become a regular at DanToday, one of the best tech-and-writing-pedagogy blogs out there, maintained by my colleague and good friend, Dr. Daniel Weinstein.
