What software do you recommend, and why?
How have your students presented drawings, narratives, films, models, and other media?
|SOCIABILITY + REVIEW CULTURE:|
How have you arranged critic to student relationships? How have you timed these interactions?
for video chat, screen share, on-screen drawing - Using Breakout sessions (within Zoom) to share Polls, and drop into the sessions.
|Format is key, conventional "boards" won't do anymore. It is good for recording the meeting, the steps that would have been taken in time.||We created smaller break out rooms, where there were hosts in each room. A student was assigned to keeping time and reporting back the tonality of the room. All reviewers were given in advance a expectation of conduct in review statement. This allowed reviewers to be very conscientious of the review culture in ZOOM.||Zoom Overview|

for screen share and on-screen drawing
|We can all take clues from Columbia's paperless studio!||Instagram Review - USC Course taught by Alvin Huang|
|Concept board |
retains image quality as you zoom in
|Drop-in format: Can anyone from any studio, or any school drop in uninvited?|
|Microsoft Teams Like Slack, but in Microsoft Office 365 environment||MsTeams = perhaps awkward way of using, but muddling through using drawing tool in PowerPoint, having students export pdf to PPT||I have found the announcements, email list serv, shared folders useful. I have yet to try the sychronous meeting capability.||Links for USC virtual events: http://bit.ly/TechIsTheAnswer|
|Miro: Like Mural, it is a collaborative platform - potentially good for presentations||Regardless of media, sharing images/files etc. with reviewers/facutly in advance of any live interaction so they can view in advance is helpful||Miro Homepage|
|Mural: Mural responded they can tackled unlimited users, but recommend a cap of 25 simultaneously, but others have tackled sessions in the 100s||Mural Homepage|
Gallery presentations & shared hashtags
|The drawings, collages, questions, and parts of their essays for an Architectural Theory course were presented in plate/slide form. The students were given citations, they were asked in adance if they wanted to share their work in this format.||good idea, but privacy issues. Perhaps students can create second accounts if their main accouont is private?||Two faculty members are the curators of INSTAGRAM with a separate and shared account: https://www.instagram.com/thearchitecturalquestion/|
asynchronous presentations and students/prof feedback
|Emphasizing video representation of hand-made physical models as final product - views, lighting, sequence of panning, etc.||Voicethread Tutorials|
good for mark-up options, but expensive
|Blackboard Also called Desire2Learn and used at Universities in Georgia.||PDF upload and file share, PPT file share, or screen share to view active modeling studies or research.||Providing a link to external critics is simple and online review is facilitated in the Collaborate Ultra area intuitively.||Blackboard Homepage|
for more linear format and narrative, using slides to zoom in/out
|If privacy is not a concern, can try livestreaming your private crit sessions to Twitch, YouTube Live, or Facebook Live, they allow commenting and feedback as well.|
Way to tie all other platforms together, synced directly to Slack.
|Very useful in creating channels of chats, the students can create their own topical channels to share info quickly, if you allow the notification feature to pop up in your computer. When you are working, questions and concerns will come up in your lower righthand corner.|
|Google Earth site analysis. I created a project and highlighted the site for students to see the extent of their research.||There're differences & similarities in film vs. architecture narrative. Neuroscientific aspects in visual communication are covered by Roland Bleicker and others. Design expertise in corporeal physical connections is extremely underdeveloped.||Since I get only 6 hrs/wk w/ the class, I allow students to text me images of their progress models. I comment asychronously when I have time. Of course this takes more of my personal time.||https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-118.28926981,54.20208454a,1000d,35y,0h,0t,0r/data=MicKJQojCiExZUJ1ZFFuTE1hYVM2OUQ2RlBPd0ItUVJlT1pNbGxMV2s|
|Google Meet + Google Slides|
|Canvas Streamlines digital tools and content for online learning||Webex installed in Canvas for meetings and office hours for one-on-one with students. Students can upload presentations or use whiteboard.||Have not tried yet, but Webex Event can be used to invite individuals and students to review sessions. FERPA issue unresolved. Use WebEx "Office Hours" for one-on-one meetings with students. Students select hour from posted schedule and appointments appear on Calendar.||https://www.webex.com https://www.instructure.com/canvas/higher-education|
|Bluebeam PDF mark-up platform that also allows simultaneous sharing of screen and marking of pdf using architecture redline and note tools.||Look especialy into the Studio and Session collaborative tool. Very useful for tracking files and mark-ups. All PDF so only works with this file format.||Not great for reviews, but very effective for desk critiques. You can follow a student as they walk through a set and have a really effective mark-up tool set that is embedded in the pdf.||www.bluebeam.com|
|Google Meet - Zoom alternative||https://gsuite.google.ca/intl/en_ca/products/meet/|
|FreeConferenceCall.com - is a free platform (takes donations) that has an interface much like Zoom|
|ESRI ArcGIS online, story maps could be great for urban analysis, many universities have accounts, free accounts also available||https://storymaps.arcgis.com/|
|Adobe Project Aero (Advanced License, iOS)|
|Adobe myportfolio.com sites||Students had first created a series of PDFS related to site drawings, site sections, project diagrams, project floorplans, project axonometrics, and project perspectives.||The products of this format were then plae quickly in myportfolio.com websites in order that classmates/cohorts who were not attending the final sychronous review could see their colleagues work and could be shared with the rest of the faculty.||https://portfolio.adobe.com/ examples of portfolios: https://riverbhf54b.myportfolio.com/|
|Adobe XD (Interface and UX/UI Design)|
|ADOBE Spark||One can make slideshow/slidedeck with imbedded video for presentations overlap text, titles. This can incorporate a sense of narrative in the presentation.||It is a presentation style that overlaps slides therefore has this opportunity to feel like the presentation is somewhat animated or has moving qualities but are mostly developed from still slides.||https://spark.adobe.com/|
|ENSCAPE (3D Model sharing both in VR and in a simple web app)||https://enscape3d.com/|
|HUBs by MOZILLA (virtual gallery - can walk around a virtual space)||https://tyler.temple.edu/architecture-2020-celebration|
|WEBJETS (presentation tool)||group work presentations, this is a platform for group collaboration and see the work in progress.||This is a great way for students to prepare work together in group, the faculty member can look onto the work during the project.||https://www.webjets.io/|
|HAIKU DECK (presentation tool)||presentation maker. There are many graphic short cuts to a fast presentation built within the program.||This program requires some one to drive the screenshare. It is a program that requires to be in queue.||https://www.haikudeck.com/|
