  • 1. Creating Videocast Lectures for Online Courses

  • 2. How to engage Students?
    Some common complaints from students in online courses
    There’s so much to read – I don’t know what’s most important
    I never get to meet the professor. Or, What does my professor look like?
    I need a better explanation than the book provides
    The instructor never communicates with us
  • 3. Why Videocast?
    Video podcasts (videocasts) are becoming more popular and easy to use
    Alleviate students’ feeling of disconnect in online courses
    Instructors have an opportunity to engage students
  • 4. Tips for Effective Videocasts
    Limit length — provide highlights, topics you want to be sure students read, a “teaser” for a discussion forum
    Try to limit to 8 - 10 minutes
    Find a stationary, well-lit location
    Have notes available
  • 5. Getting Started
    Have a place to post video
    YouTube (public or EDU)
    Adobe Connect
    Have a tool to capture video
    iMovie (Mac OS X)
    Windows Movie Maker (XP and later)
    Adobe Connect and YouTube can capture directly
  • 6. Tools for Video Capture and Editing
    Windows Movie Maker
    Free with Windows XP and Vista
    Interface is a little more difficult to work with than iMovie
    Fewer automated tasks than iMovie (finishing video, sharing via Web)
    Windows Live Movie Maker
    Free with Windows Vista and 7
    Apple iMovie
    Part of iLife (’09)
    Low cost; free on new Mac purchases from Apple
    Advanced editing tools similar to Final Cut
    Ease of use and automated tasks
  • 7. Our Next Steps
    Let’s create and embed a short movie in iMovie (about 30 minutes)
    We’ll upload it to YouTube
    We’ll then embed it in a Pearson LearningStudio (eCollege) course
    We’ll have a Q&A session at the end (15 minutes)
    If you have a quick question for clarification during my presentation, please ask
