  • 1 - Most students in online courses have the bandwidth required. Video file sizes have become smaller while enhancing quality.
    3 - It’s easier to get students excited about the material with audio/video. Leave them wanting more so they’ll engage in discussion forums and assignments.
  • Follow along in the handout. We’re starting on page 1.
    3 - You can use a Word document almost like a TelePrompTer.
  • TeacherTube is an option, but I’ve found that it has even more ads embedded on its site than YouTube. Plus, its system for creating html code so you can embed the video into an eCollege content item is not as easy to use as YouTube.
  • We’re going to focus on iMovie on my Mac, but we’ll take a few minutes in a little bit to go over the instructions for Windows Movie Maker, too.
    I don’t yet have access to Windows 7, but the previews I’ve seen of Live Movie Maker appear to have a much more streamlined and user-friendly interface than the XP version of Movie Maker.
  • I’m going to go through the steps for iMovie (on the left), and the comparable steps in Windows Movie Maker are on the right. When our movie is processing and uploading to YouTube, I’ll come back and walk through the Windows Movie Maker steps.
