With the proliferation of iPads and other highly portable computing devices, podcast audio and video has become a viable supplemental teaching tool. The Adelante Tejas team is working with faculty to develop focused multimedia podcasts to address frequently misunderstood course concepts and oft-repeated assignment instructions. Several podcasts have been created for a variety of STEM disciplines including Computer Science, Mathematics and Microbiology.
3D Capture & Visualization
Printed textbooks have long used two-dimensional media to illustrate course content while physical models and artifacts have been valuable classroom tools for many years. 3D capture and visualization technology is now readily available to San Antonio College faculty and students, allowing us to digitally recreate paleontological specimens and articulated models and send them home with all of our students.
Example: Smilodon (Saber Toothed Cat)
Scobee Planetarium and Challenger Center
The Scobee planetarium is currently undergoing renovation, but in 2014 it will re-emerge as the Scobee Planetarium and Challenger Center. We are working to develop interactive virtual experiences to educate and inspire visitors of all ages.
