Creating video mini lessons with ease

  1. 1. 2012 International TESOL Convention, Philadelphia Ms. Candice Quiñones(cjq208@lehigh.edu) Electronic Village Presentation March 29, 2012 Creating Video Mini-Lessons with Ease The best videos combine video footage, slides, and voice-overs blended through the use of screencasting. To create a mini-lesson, you will need to follow these steps. 1. Prepare: Determine the material you will need before filming/recording. a. Prepare a slide show for a background. b. Record any video footage necessary. c. Have necessary screens/programs running or cued up. 2. Organize: Once these materials are prepared, create a short storyboard and/or script for yourself and do a run-through. You may choose to record your run-through, but it is very seldom that things will go exactly as you wish the first time. 3. Film: Record your video. 4. Publish: Once you have recorded, preview, and then publish the final result through the method of your choice. a. You may need to convert your file after filming if your screencasting program doesn’t offer a way to publish directly (online), but free video converters are readily available online for download (see below). b. Popular places to publish screencasts are Youtube or Vimeo, but you can also use your course management site, wiki, email or the provided host site.
