Creating Instructional Video
Ideal for teachers who are new to creating instructional video or those looking to extend or improve their methods of delivering content to students, these videos contain practical advice and guidance from long-time Blended Learning advocate, Steven Kolber. He covers the four key forms of instructional video: screen capture, boards, classroom observation (video on demand) and green screen.
The six videos are titled:
- The Why and Basics
- Making a Video
- Research-informed principles: Making them Better
- Forms of Video: Making them Different
- Using the Videos in Class: Applying Them
- Pedagogy: Using them Effectively
Some key ideas and content covered in the six videos are:
- Instructional video give teachers more freedom in the classroom to do interesting and engaging things with students.
- There is strong evidence-based research that tells us how to make effective instructional video, including the cognitive load and the redundancy principles.
- There are some simple but effective ways to increase student engagement, such as using gestures, tone and metaphors,
- There is a range of free and licensed software that are easy-to-access, learn and master.
- Choosing an appropriate filming location, working out how to handle mistakes and deciding to script (or not!) are just some of the things to think about when creating your own instructional videos.
- Deciding which editing software to use and where to publish your videos are things to consider as part of the production process
- Instructional videos are an essential tool for teachers to use when partially or fully flipping a teaching and learning program.
