A 4-minute description of a new history podcast and video channel I’m starting, partly in response to the pandemic:
Here’s a short (<10 min) video about using Hypothesis in both my online and in-person classes, which led to some thoughts about the value of online teaching:

Another History in 5-or-so Minutes episode about editing Openstax OER US History textbook. Is my beef style or substance? You decide.
I was going to spend five or six minutes talking about improving the style of a very clunky section of the Openstax OER text as I remix it for my spring class. Then I had to add another six minutes to address some problems I had with the substance.
This is a 12-ish minute long episode of History in 5-or-so Minutes, in vlog format this time, in which I talk about beginning to rewrite the Openstax US History textbook. I’m going to use this as the basis of a US History I class this spring, but not before I revise it sunstantially. I’ll discuss those revisions chapter by chapter as I rewrite or as I create PowerPoint lectures and videos using the content.
