Screencast with Kaltura Demo for Transcribing Audio

This has been absolutely the most frustrating aspect! Attempting to post an embedded video into this little post. I even zipped the file to reduce size. I am beginning to think I do not have time to complete this and can see why students up against a deadline choose to do the bare minimum when faced with technology inclined to be perverse.

Anyone have any tips?

River walk at KPC


Walk out of my office at lunch and this is what I experience. Every year (and it has been a decade!) it takes my breath away and inspires me to keep going. I love learning, advising and being here. It is a treasure and I am honored to be a caretaker.

OH Sweet Heavens Google +

I may or may not have just joined Google+ and might be experiencing a data overload! It is like a mashup of all things that interest Brandi. I like it! Anyone else on Google+? How do you like it?


UBD for Preparatory Advising 101

UBD-Tree_201601 Preparatory Advising 101

Here is my UBD tree for the Preparatory Advising 101 Blackboard course shell. I would appreciate feedback and direction from those you have previous course design experience as well as those who, thinking from a student’s perspective, may identify areas I have not considered.
Thank you,


A wild..a…beast?


will-da-beast that most elusive of creatures, prone to mischief frequently attempting to cram large amounts of knowledge into their melons.



At this time I feel as though I am attempting to force knowledge (not wisdom) into my framework at a speed beyond my capacity to effectively utilize and recognize that the students I am attempting to reach are likely experiencing this effect to varying degrees. Taking this into account I am looking forward to creating a course design that accommodates multiple learning speeds with opportunities for students to re-watch, re-read and re-experience videos, presentations, handouts, articles and conversations that prepare them to meet their goals in school, at work, home and in life. It feels like a tall order.

I can do this.


OOOooh! New Technology!

I am looking forward to this forum and the information I may glean from so many minds ? I enjoy engaging with colleagues, learning and improving skill sets to better assist students meet their goals.

When I am not at work, most often I may be found reading to myself or my children, walking, creating art, admiring art or discussing art, or people watching.


Art :)
