Matthew Hickman

Matthew Hickman's fully online course, CRJS 524 Crime Mapping, required that the students learn ArcGIS software to complete their projects. Matthew used Zoom to produce a number of ArcGIS tutorials, hosted the resulting videos in Vimeo, and embedded those videos throughout his course. If you enlarge the video below to High Definition you can see that it is extremely clear. The result was very effective and having Matthew's talking head appear in the corner created some friendly instructor presence in an otherwise technical walk through. If you are interested in learning more about Zoom we offer workshops.

Matthew also had the students review each others' work every week. To keep them on their toes he occasionally had some students  provide erroneous data that their classmates were charged with catching.
