Earlier, I reported that Sweenglish would have a YouTube channel. It will but, thanks to some conversations with administration at RBC, I've decided to change the name. It did have "RBC" in the title of the channel, but that now seems unwise. Having RBC in the title would require more moderation than I would like to have, so I've created a new channel with a different title. It's called SweenglishTube. It will host some student projects in the fall semester, along with "likes" that students and I think are relevant.

Film Festival

There's a film festival on campus. Students (and maybe faculty?) can submit clips in different categories or original films to win prizes. I can't win, but I'll probably submit just to up the competition. Here's what I'm thinking.

Best credits:

Best fight:

This could go for best hero, villain, or line of dialoge???
Best chase.

Students have introduced me to a spoken-word poet who has some education-related videos on YouTube that I think are pretty awesome. They make me think, so I'm sharing them here. I've also "Liked" these three using the sweenglishRBC YouTube page, which will be more lively in the fall semester.
