Lecture: Application of Social Media in Education
Today I learn about application of social media in education. The use of social media as a learning tool is one of the best way to engage and attract the students interest as people nowadays are more attached to social media.
There are various of social media that can be used as a platform of education such as Facebook, Whatsapp, Telegram, Twitter, YouTube and more. Those application can help the students to reconnect and gain a lot of useful information that they want around the world without any limitation. All of the information is unlimited so the content can be fully accessed by the students. Most of the application can also be shared and viewed by others, so the students will experienced the learning process by themselves.
Personally, I just love to study and do the revision through various educational video resources that I can watch from YouTube. It help me to understand better as it already points out every important points in animation and powerpoint version. So, I prefer to use YouTube as a tool to learn effectively rather than reading a thick book and get bored after a few minutes.
TUTORIAL: WEEBLY CON'T
For today, we started to learn all the features of Weebly. We learn how to use Weebly and start to create our own site. At first, the editing is quite challenging as I am not used to it but after a few try, I managed to set up everything like what i want. The most exciting part was when I can choose my own theme and background for my website.
I learned how to insert a link, embed code, insert file and Youtube video easily by just dragging all the features that I want. For example,
2. Embed code
- To embed code, go to any application that u want to share, copy the code, and here it is...
