These last few weeks I have been working on the lesson plans and lectures for my online Greek II course with the Evangelical School of Theology. This upcoming school year I am scheduled to teach Greek I, Greek II, and Greek III. Before the first semester launches, I would like to have Greek I and II completely finished and Greek III well underway. So far so good! Greek I is ready to go and Greek II only lacks one lesson. By the end of August, I’m hoping to have Greek III half done.
Lesson planning in another language, as well as in an online format, isn’t the easiest thing I’ve ever done. I am not gifted in IT but I am learning about Moodle–our online learning platform–as I go.
When I run into a challenging topic for my students, I have decided to design a lecture to help give extra examples, much like a student would receive in a live classroom setting. However, this not only requires writing the PowerPoint for the lecture, but I also need to record, edit, and upload my lecture to youtube. Yesterday, I spent at least 6 hours putting together a couple of videos for a lecture on the greek participle. I’ve attached one of the videos in case you’re interested. I’m pretty sure my Mom is the only one who’ll be interested, but I’ll attach it anyway. 🙂
