NowComment: Educational Uses of Online Discussion

Video Tour of Selected NowComment Features


Note: With the exception of #1, these videos are several years old, but they still do a good job showing how NowComment works, even though we've made many improvements (e.g. simplifying the Upload Document workflow while adding a Preview). Click a media player's bottom right corner to play in full-screen mode.

Also check out the NowComment screencasts made by Heidi Weber, the 2013 NCTE National Teacher of the Year and a 2015 PBS Learning Media Digital Innovator. She has both how-to tutorials and other posts emphasizing educational theory, e.g. Delving into Discourse (Digital Literacy for elementary school students).
