A pretty good article, and I’m not just saying that because I’m quoted a bunch 😂 (Well, I guess I am, since the article mirrors my views)

Another post for those that care about tech for teaching. My small setup for using my laptop and iPad while teaching (without swaping inputs), while recording locally, and streaming/recording on Teams


For those who care about such things, I did two tech posts on my blog. Perhaps they'll help someone.

1) on how to create a streaming (and/or recording) setup with 2 or more computers (1 is the streaming computer) blairmacintyre.me/2021/09/12/t

2) on how to create a simple and effective setup for teaching live while also streaming and recording blairmacintyre.me/2021/09/20/l

COVID US higher ed 

Hope everyone is staying safe; here in Georgia (USA) it’s no masks or vaccines or social distancing requires on campus. And we’re required to be in class teaching.
