***WSU has recently licensed an online service called VoiceThread - a “creating, commenting, and sharing system” that allows a user to upload almost any kind of file (videos, documents, audio , etc). Once uploaded, the item is available for asynchronous comments and converstaions (publicly or privately) through a number of multimodal ways. This is a great way to add an element of interactivity to videos (including still images), photographs, tutorials, etc. and provides an option for for assessment.
Note: WSU faculty who would like to create Groups: email aoi.li AT wsu.edu and request a pro account so you can create them.
we have access to the PolicyMap database through 2/28/2021.
What is PolicyMap?
An online (no software installation needed) U.S. national data and mapping tool and analytics platform with multidisciplinary applications for college students and faculty. Undergraduate and graduate schools use us in their curriculum and research related to social sciences, urban studies, real estate and housing analysis, community and economic development, public administration, public health, policy and political science, education, business, economics, statistics, and geography, among others. Users can leverage thousands of U.S. data indicators in PolicyMap to perform demographic and socioeconomic analysis, from a neighborhood census block group in many cases, up to a national level, as well as create custom regions, for their research and studies.
Look for Blog Posts, Customer Stories, and sample Maps, Tables, and Reports.
