$50k Shindig Challenge
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. 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.
