by EdSurge

A new research initiative is underway to understand how video impacts student engagement in online classes. Video-chat platform Shindig announced yesterday a “$50K Challenge,” in which it will partner with 25-50 faculty members and/or course designers at higher-ed institutions to let them test-drive the technology in their classrooms during the 2016 academic year. Shindig will award grants from $1,000 to $2,500 to faculty who use the platform and report data about how it impacts the online course experience.
