Making Videos for Your Courses

Want to give your students a little bit further information about a concept? Maybe something you would like to tell them to help clarify a certain point? Some faculty are creating short video clips from their own office computer. Students are finding the videos helpful and tend to tune in to view them more than they tend to watch full captured lectures.

Find out more about this idea by reading the Chronicle of Higher Education article, "Film School: To Spice Up Course Work, Professors Make Their Own Videos."

  1. This is interesting because this is what my university (University of Louisville) did. I was assigned to make a number of instructional videos for the students teaching them how to connect to our new wireless network. As most students are non-tech people, we figured a video was much easier to follow than step by step instructions on paper. We just implemented this a few months ago and it seems to be going well.
