Post-Election Voting Access and Fraud with Davidson College
 
On November 9, Shindig hosted an event with Davidson College's political science professors Dr. Susan Roberts and Dr. Andrew O'Geen. The hot topic of discussion was US voting access and fraud - a trending conversation especially after the historic presidential election. This was part of DavidsonX, a micro-MOOC series provided through the edX platform, on incorporating current events and world affairs into compelling discussions amongst students. With over 50 in attendance from 9 countries including the USA, Germany, Iceland, Taiwan, Russia, and more than 30 thought-provoking questions, this event certainly engaged those seeking to better understand American politics as well as provided them an opportunity to share concerns, ask questions and engage with one another.



Traditionally, online learning has offered one dimensional knowledge transfer from educator to student. This Shindig powered session is a reminder that there is ample opportunity to provide distance learners to collaborate and interact with one another in ways that extend far past simple discussion boards or emails. By enabling real-time conversations, reactions, and discussions, students integrate more deeply into their learning community and contribute to greater student body cohesion. These benefits also extend to educators, who have increased high-touch interactions with their learners. Davidson's mini-MOOC series on political science is only one example of the many possibilities available to online educators and students for more integrated online experiences.

Shindig Announces Integration with Canvas LMS

Shindig Announces Integration with Canvas LMS


NEW YORK, NY (June 20, 2016)  Shindig, Pioneer in Large-Scale interactive Video Chat classrooms announced today its integration with Canvas by Instructure. As more and more colleges and universities transition to Canvas, a modern learning management system (LMS) that makes teaching and learning easier for educators and students, Shindig reaffirms its commitment to partner with best of breed education technology providers to create the possibility of seamless interoperability.

Shindig is a paradigm shifting video chat teaching technology, which addresses what many believe is the key shortcoming of online education modalities, what MIT recently termed the “interactivity vacuum”. Shindig enables both the robust teacher-to-student engagement ideal for pedagogy and the informal student-to-student engagement requisite for peer-to-peer learning, student body formation and student retention.

"We are very excited about the enhanced interactivity a partnership with Shindig brings to teachers and students using Canvas,” said Troy Anderson Director of Partnerships for Instructure. " Shindig's peer-to-peer approach to synchronous video chat for teaching and learning is a valuable addition to the online Canvas experience. The platform’s robust teacher-to-student and student-to-student engagement can enhance student body formation and student retention."

Teachers at institutions using Canvas are now able to instantly schedule, customize and launch Shindig sessions directly from their Canvas LMS. These Shindig sessions can be used for class delivery, office hours, guest speakers, workshops, and are automatically added to student’s schedules who are enrolled in the course.  Students are alerted when new Shindig sessions are scheduled and can RSVP and receive start time reminders. Additionally, students can now enjoy single sign-on (SSO) to Shindig sessions directly from the Canvas LMS. Teachers have access to session analytics reports including: attendance, duration of stay, time of entry, time of departure, engagement through question or sidebar chat and more.

The Shindig Canvas plugin is stored in a public GitHub Repo, where IT administrators of the university’s LMS can install the free plugin.  Once installed, the IT Admin can contact Shindig to gain an API key for the ability to create on-demand Shindig sessions in their Canvas instance and set up a demo time with a Shindig representative. To get started, each Canvas client institution is awarded 10 free Shindig sessions of up to 1,000 attendees. 

“We are excited to become a part of the Canvas partner program, more and more we find institutions demand LMS integration and we find most of all they demand Canvas integration.  Many of our clients have been awaiting this integration to further their institutional use of the Shindig platform,.” said Steve Gottlieb, Shindig Founder.

Those interested in learning more about Shindig can contact education@shindigevents.com. Watch the Canvas for Shindig tutorial video. To experience the platform in action interested parties may visit any of the growing number of online educational series hosted on the platform including; Edchat Interactive, Bryan Alexander’s Future Trends Forum and more.

Shindig Adds Full Multi-Camera Production and Enhanced Interactivity to Facebook Live


(NEW YORK)  June 7, 2016 -- Shindig, the video chat event platform, announced integration with Facebook Live today. The integration puts at the disposal of Facebook Live hosts a full multi-camera production suite such that they can bring multiple remote subjects on “stage” before the Facebook Live audience to interact with one another as well as introduce pre-recorded video, slides and other multimedia. The integration expands the capabilities of Facebook Live, allowing for seamless switching from one camera view to another in full screen of one personality with the other inset; or having multiple cameras videos both presented with equal priority.

Shindig (Shindig Overview Video) also enables a virtual TV studio audience to interact with the special guests before the Facebook Live audience. Whereas Facebook Live itself only allows for text interaction between audience members and Facebook Live hosts, Shindig integration adds capability for a webcam enabled online studio audience to interact with the guests in video chat. Additionally, a host can have an assistant pre-screen such guests prior to bringing them to the stage. When the participants are brought to the stage they interact with the guest in video chat before both the audience viewing on Shindig and through Facebook Live.

"Facebook's power to aggregate audiences paired with Shindig's unique video chat interactivity creates an unbeatable opportunity for personalities and brands," said Steve Gottlieb, founder and CEO of Shindig.

The integration is achieved by embedding the livestream of the Shindig event into a Facebook Live broadcast.  The event can draw simultaneously a pre-promoted audience given the Shindig URL where they can join the event without registration, signup or download as well as the Facebook Live audience that receives the notifications from Facebook.  Viewers on Facebook can watch, comment, and react live on Facebook to the ongoing Shindig event. Hosts can alternate between interacting with text questions from Facebook Live audience members and video chat questions from those who have opted to join the Shindig audience. Participants on the Shindig platform can also enjoy other standard Shindig capabilities, including Shindig’s unique audience member to audience member video chat mingling.

The integration  allows for the interaction of Shindig to reach a wider audience via Facebook Live, without compromising the functionalities of either platform.  Having a separate Shindig URL for the events in advance also addresses Facebook Live hosts’ concerns that they were previously unable to promote their live events to audiences beyond those who have  already “Liked” them on Facebook or pre promote them to potential audiences outside of Facebook.

Shindig Offers $50,000 to Grow Online Learning Community
 

$50,000 Shindig Challenge aims to document the impact video chat interactivity has on student engagement, success and retention in online education


Shindig, the large-scale video chat teaching platform, launched today the 50K Shindig Challenge, a research initiative meant to improve the understanding of the efficacy of interactive video chat to create a more connected online student course experience.

Many prominent education leaders believe that increased use of new, more sophisticated video modalities will be one of the most significant ed-tech trends of 2016.  As Jonathan Blake Huer of Ball State University wrote in Campus Technology: 'Video in the classroom is still largely a one-way medium. This is not where students are. When they go into the classroom, whether in-person or online, it seems primitive. It's like asking faculty to go back to typewriters and Wite-Out.”

To help educators better understand the evolving potential of interactive video chat, Shindig will partner with 25-50 faculty members and/or course designers at higher education institutions to incorporate complimentary use of the Shindig platform into their online courses in the Spring, Summer or Fall semester of 2016. Participating educators will receive grants ranging from $1,000 to $2,500 and be asked to collect and report data concerning attitudes and perceived effectiveness of Shindig’s platform.

Educators applying for participation and looking for more information should visit Shindig.com/challenge.

For those interested in experiencing the Shindig platform, please join our weekly Future Trends Forum hosted by Bryan Alexander. RSVP for this series is available at http://shindig.com/event/ftf.

According to a recent blog post by Wainhouse Research, there are parallels between Ridley Scott's famous 1984 Apple commercial and the Shindig technology. Namely, Shindig's willingness to challenge the status quo and change the way we meet and collaborate online.


Wainhouse ties Shindig's ability to adapt to consumer needs to that of Apple's. The blog post delves into how users have wrestled with tech constraints and how Shindig offers features that are not only readily available but also very needed.

Shindig creates an environment where an immense amount of people can gather together online to communicate, collaborate and network. The features underscored are unique to the online video chat world, as Wainhouse highlights Shindig's unique tools to manage an event without stripping away the user's autonomy.

This uninterrupted shot was filmed by the most advanced gyro-stabilized camera system, the GSS C520, mounted to a truck on a custom road built next to a custom trail that took three weeks to build. This true cinematic achievement required perfect coordination between Semenuk, Anthill Films, and TGR with regard to athleticism, planning, timing and logistics. Injured at the time, Semenuk only hit the full line once.


This Thursday, July 30th, from 3-4 PM MST, you'll get a chance to speak LIVE with Brandon Semenuk and Teton Gravity Research cinematographer & GSS operator Brian Wulf over video chat or text about how the shoot went down and just what it took to capture this mind-bending feat on film.


This interactive video chat will give you the rare chance to speak with the athlete and filmmaker, one-on-one, from anywhere in the world.
