Teaching Strategies for Finding and Creating Video Content for Blended and Online Courses
Abstract: Using videos for instructional purposes can be an effective way to support student learning through interaction and engagement in blended and online courses. Unfortunately, the large number of existing videos can be overwhelming for K12 teachers and higher education instructors who are looking for specific educational content. In addition, educators who want to develop their own videos need to be aware of the video creation tools available and the phases of the video production process. Some of the issues to be addressed during the presentation include: How types of videos are appropriate for educational purposes? What sites are available that contain appropriate existing educational video content? How considerations need to be made for selecting the right videos? What video creation tools are available for creating quality video content? How needs to be considered for each phase of the video production process from the planning stage through distribution? What are the benefits and challenges to using videos in the classroom? Questions will be posed at different points of the presentation to encourage participants to apply what is covered to their own practice. At the end of the presentation, additional resources and presenter contact information will be provided.
