  2. 2. Intro – about me • High School Science teacher (Physics, Biology, General Science) • Background in Paleontology Hobbies include •Wasting time on Facebook • Long walks in a dark forest • Staying out late on cold dark nights • Operating the largest telescope in the country
  3. 3. Sequence •Why? •What? • How? •Q&A
  4. 4. Why do you want to make flipped-class videos? Good reasons • Free up class time for interaction • Generate lessons for missing students • Focus the lesson • Let students review lessons at home • Go full-flipped Bad Reasons • Because everyone else is doing it • So you can slack off
  5. 5. Why make your own? • Lots and LOTS of great videos on YouTube • Making your own generates a connection with your students • Present the information how you want • focus your lessons
  6. 6. What is a flipped-class video anyway? • Short Video Lesson • Addresses one or two specific topics • Can be used as a lesson, or to supplement a lesson • Can be made by the teacher, or someone else entirely

  14. 14. This the part you probably came for…
  15. 15. How to make a lesson video Things you will need: • Ideas • Camera and/or screen capture software • Editing software • Enthusiasm Bonus: • Pen enabled tablet (for Chalk & Talk style) • Remote mouse/clicker
  16. 16. Ideas • know what you are going to say. This is important - it is easy to ramble, but you want to keep it short & sweet! • know what you are going to show • Plan to keep it to 10 minutes or less • Use existing lesson presentations as a starting point!
  17. 17. Camera • Any camera will do. • Digicam •webcam • cell phone • camcorder • DSLR • Tripod is useful too.
  18. 18. Screen capture software • Camtasia – powerful, but not cheap • CamStudio ( – free but limited • Open Broacdaster ( – free, full featured • Jing ( ) - Web based, also from Techsmith, limited to 5 minutes • Screencast-o-matic ( free version has watermark • Screencastify – Chrome plugin • Educreations ( ) - for chalk & talk style
  19. 19. Video Editing Software • Adobe Premiere / Premiere Elements • Magix Movie Edit Pro • iMovie (Mac or amore limited version on iOS) • Windows Movie Maker (free, but loathsome) •WeVideo (works with Google Drive) •Camtasia Studio buit-in editor
  20. 20. The Process • Decide on a format • Spend some time up front planning your video lesson. Know what you are going to say, know what you want to show. • Edit your PowerPoints (if doing that style of video) to minimize text, maximize imagery - include animations! • Record your video – you may need to do a few takes, but don’t worry if it’s not perfect • Edit • Publish
  21. 21. Chalk & Talk style • Can be done on an iPad using Educreations or ShowMe • On Windows touch-screen computer using OneNote ow Word and a stylus • On non-touch PC or Mac with a pen tablet • Run the “white board” medium, run the screen capture, and record.
  22. 22. Narrated Slide Show / PiP slide show • Record the slide show with voice-over narration. •Camtasia integrates with PPT to facilitate this • For picture-in-picture style, run a webcam video preview in a small window while recording - Some let you keep the window always on top (eg AmCap)
  23. 23. Illustrated Lecture • Let me explain in video form:
  24. 24. Editing considerations • If it’s not necessary, cut it. Be harsh. • Cut out “ums” and dead space • Doesn’t have to be beautiful • Images can be overlaid as PiP or floating (“greenscreened”) with multitrack editors • Use the “zoom” tool frequently to allow precision edits efficiently
  25. 25. Publishing your video • YouTube – public or link only • GAFE – now unlimited storage for schools • Sharing directly with students
  26. 26. Overall Considerations • Find a style you’re comfortable with and works for you • dont worry - quick & dirty is better than nothing, or many hours making it “perfect”. • jump cuts are perfectly fine • Keep it tight, under 10 minutes if possible. If longer, consider splitting into parts • have fun with it!
  27. 27. Ninja Level: Special Effects • Animations in ppt overlaid on live view • Animated titles • Slow or fast motion • Cutting effects (see Georges Méliès) – transporter effect, dropping from the sky • Split screen effects – talking to yourself
  28. 28. Community support • Flipped Learning Network • YouTube • Forums and discussion groups • G+
