During this session at the 7th Annual International Symposium on Emerging Technologies for Online Learning, learn about one instructor's use of YouTube's free and easy-to-use features for recording, editing, captioning, and embedding video into his online course. An overview of the steps for recording, editing, captioning, video in YouTube will be provided as well as examples shared for various approaches for seamlessly incorporating video into any online course. While the session featured the integrated "video anywhere" YouTube features in Blackboard, the principles provided will be applicable to an online course in any learning management system. A summary of feedback survey results from students regarding their experiences with video in the course were shared as well as lessons learned by the instructor for those wishing to follow the same suggested steps for incorporating video in their own course.

  • 48. Student Comments on Instructor Videos “The webcam videos that serve as introductions to each unit are great. They are very effective in replacing some of what is lost by not meeting in a classroom. Just those videos alone have taught me a lot about the power of video to be used in online instruction. And I think it is important for students to see their instructor talking to them.” - ETT 510 Student, Fall 2013
  • 49. Student Comments on Instructor Videos “The videos every week were extremely helpful in that you outlined all the assignments and tips for completing them in a unit. I had a clear understanding of all activities that you wanted us to complete and nothing was a surprise. This made scheduling time very easy because we knew what was expected. I also appreciated your timely feedback on questions. Thank you for all your support through this course!” - ETT 510 Student, Fall 2013
  • 50. Student Comments on Video Resources “The additional resources and videos that are posted with the week’s readings have been very helpful. The videos always help explain the concepts for me and I am a visual learner anyway so it works.” - ETT 510 Student, Fall 2013
