WE'RE INVITING the Amazon Echo Dot into several multimedia tutorial sessions to learn more about tools that favour immersive classrooms. And a surprising thing has happened--the students have accelerated post-production workflow of the 360 video recording that we create during some of the sessions.

Echo dot

I've experimented with the Amazon Echo Dot in Ireland for the past fortnight, learning how to make it work in Ireland by side loading apps on Android and iOS.  This is an essential work-around that I'm showing to several cohorts of students who take animation, business and multimedia modules from me this semester. The ideas are supported by dozens of clever people inside a Facebook Group of Irish members. I think it's important to know how to leverage personal technology and the Amazon Echo makes it a lot of fun--as you can hear in the YouTube clip below.
