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.
