  2. 2. Using Video Clips to Stimulate Discussion in Online Courses (Kelley, 2008) highlights these points: 1) Be sure the video selection is aligned with the course objectives. Free Template from www.brainybetty.com 2
  3. 3. 2) (instructor) Preview the entire video so that you have the opportunity to prepare appropriate questions that lead to critical thinking. Free Template from www.brainybetty.com 3
  4. 4. 3) Consider having students write about the concepts being taught and viewed in the video. Videos tend to have a more emotional or psychic component than lectures, for instance. You may find students more ready to compose a written narrative upon viewing a video. Free Template from www.brainybetty.com 4
  5. 5. • Videos can be used in face to face , hybrid or fully online courses, as discussion starters. They can also be used as critique /evaluation instruments. • For instance you can have a student videotape his own classroom teaching and then post this to Teacher Tube for peers to evaluate him using established criteria/forms. Discussion can follow. Free Template from www.brainybetty.com 5
