POLSC231 Video Experiment

We are trying an experiment in our POLSC231: Introduction to American Politics course, and would like to hear from you!

We have set all the resources labeled as ‘lectures‘  to open up in a lightbox (pop-up video frame) on the same screen, rather than in a new tab or new window. Give it a try at the link.

What do you think? Is this easier to work with, or just more complicated? Like it, hate it, want more? Feel free to let us know by contacting us at: via email [email protected], via Facebook/G+/Twitter,  or simply by commenting on this post.

We’re curious to see if we should roll this out in other courses, so it would be exciting to hear from you!

Thank you, and we hope you enjoy this new addition to POLSC 231!

      Hi John, the best place to start would be either our YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/saylorfoundation) or our Political Science homepage (http://www.saylor.org/majors/political-science/). You can choose a course that fits your needs and see what we have on offer for lectures.

      Too, there are many excellent video lecture providers online; a good place to start is iTunes U.

      Let us know what you find!
