Using Instructor-Created Video in the Distance Learning Classroom: Effectiveness and Methods for Production
Abstract: The benefits of incorporating video in traditional classroom instruction are well documented at all levels of education. This is obvious when comparing a lesson containing only a verbal discussion of the Mount Saint Helens eruption to a lesson that also contains video of the mountain's summit exploding into a cloud of dust. Teachers at all levels are finding that carefully chosen videos help foster a deeper understanding of the subject matter and facilitate retention. Sometimes videos can easily be located on the Internet, and this approach is great if suitable videos can be located in the public domain, but what should instructors do if appropriate videos are not readily available? This session will first present the results of research investigating the effectiveness of utilizing instructional videos in the distance-learning classroom. The presenters will then demonstrate methods that will easily enable educators to record and edit their own instructional videos.
