Dr. Lisa Mitchell, Associate Professor of South Asia Studies, has guided her students to create voiceover videos as class assignments for her large undergraduate class "East and West: A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Cultural History of the Modern World" (ANTH 063 / SAST 063 / HIST 087) in South Asia Studies. Her class focuses on how the desire to possess and consume commodities has shaped cultures. In addition to the commodities studied by the full class, each student researches a commodity for an individual presentation. In earlier years, this assignment required an in-class presentation with PowerPoint slides. For the past three semesters, Lisa has encouraged students to use Jing, PowerPoint's internal voice recording feature or video- editing software such as iMovie to make five-minute video presentations of their research. Lisa shared her work at the 2011 Engaging Students Through Technology symposium on the morning faculty panel. Watch videos created by Lisa Mitchell's students in 2011 and 2012.
