Discovery subscribers: Do you know that there is a way for students to view Discovery videos on their own computers? Perhaps you have found some excellent videos you would like students to watch as homework. Maybe it would be helpful for your students to have access to videos about the same topic, but at differing levels of difficulty/depth. Sharing videos with students is possible with Discovery’s Builder Tool.
It is easy to set up. Save the content (videos, images, podcasts, etc) as you normally do. Then open the assignment builder wizard. Just follow the prompts and fill out the required information. After three steps, you end up with a custom URL to post on your web page or Moodle site.
Get started by logging on at http://www.discoveryeducation.com, and then go to “My Builder Tools.” Go to the Assignment Builder section and click on “Create New Assignment.”
If you have any difficulty using the wizard, a step-by-step guide is available on the Walled Lake tech integration website: http://www.wlcsd.org/files/457499/discovery%20builder%20tools.pdf
