Start Screencasting!


The Center for Online Learning and Innovation (COLI) creates a lot of instructional videos using screencasting.  These videos, showing or demonstrating something on a computer screen with a voice narration, are a fantastic way to communicate with students, colleagues or clients.  With tools and web resources now available, screencasts are quite easy to create and install in web spaces such as Desire2Learn course sites or on department web pages. Faculty can quickly create video reminder messages or self-paced tutorials for students that save valuable classroom time for other more essential activities.  Staff can create tutorials and demonstrations that answer common, repetitive questions or requests.

As part of the “Google Apps Workshop” series in October, COLI is offering a workshop at which attendees can record their own videos using Screencast-O-Matic, a free screen-recording application.  The workshop will also cover the basics of using YouTube as a video hosting site, as well as how to embed YouTube-based videos into courses or other web spaces.

COLI also offers self-paced training tutorials – screencasts! – showing how to get started in screencasting. These are available on our YouTube Channel.

Register today for our screencasting workshop or for other technology workshops!

Canisius Presents “Dual Constitutionalism in America”

Canisius College presents a panel discussion on “Dual Constitutionalism in America,” on Tuesday, September 20 from 2:30 p.m. – 4 p.m. in the Regis Room. The event, which is free and open to the public, is co-sponsored by the Canisius College Raichle Pre-Law Center, the Bar Association of Erie County and the League of Women Voters of Buffalo Niagara.

Panelists will include:

    • Hon. Eugene F. Pigott Jr., NYS Court of Appeals
    • Christopher Bopst ’95, chief legal and financial officer, Sam-Son Logistics
    • Peter J. Galie, former director of the Raichle Pre-Law Center and professor emeritus of political science, Canisius College

Robert A. Klump, director of the Raichle Pre-Law Center, will serve as panel moderator. The theme of the event, held in commemoration of Constitution Day, will be the tradition of dual constitutionalism in the United StatesPanelists will examine the national Constitution from the perspective of New York State’s Constitution – how does the state constitution shed light on our national constitution and vice versa? In what ways are they different and how are they similar?  Given that the question of whether to hold a constitutional convention to revise the New York State Constitution will appear on the ballot in November 2017, a focus of the discussion will include the respective models of the constitutional revision found in the two documents.
