At Advancing Learning, I was able to connect with educators interested in leveraging video in their classroom. This presentation was more discussion based than the last one. Today I briefly introduced myself and answered questions of the audience using the website below as a reference.

I hope that participants were inspired to give video creation a try. The discussion was engaging. Some questions I was able to address based on my experience. Other questions remain unanswered. Participants raised the following questions:

  • How do instructional designers “sell” the idea to faculty? (especially when there are limited resources)
  • How can the workflow be improved?
  • In the college setting, how do Colleges view and support video creators?

My presentation was one of several dedicated to the use of video in the classroom. There are a variety of options out there. I went to the TouchCast presentation by Phil Arnold. He is quite an interesting and engaging professor. Check out his demonstration set-up.

Although it does not allow as much video editing flexibility as Adobe Premiere, it has a teleprompter built in and seems to be user-friendly for beginners. The major downside for me is that videos need to be created on iDevices and I like my PC setup. I also like the advanced features, but am not paying the monthly fee. Phil says the free version is good enough for educators. I picked up some good tips on useful apps from the presenter. If you are new to video creation TouchCast is worth trying.

You’ve really taken the SPLOTpoint far in creating this fabulous resource for your presentation. And a big hat tip for figuring out how to have the second sequence list of slides.

I just noted I forgot to adda requested feature (just updated the theme) so you can create a button to jump to a specific slide:

[startbutton start="5"]

to start at slide 5.

I appreciate too how you are using and attributing images in your blog posts, a great practice to demonstrate for students and colleagues.
