Learn about one instructor’s use of YouTube’s free and easy-to-use features incorporated in Blackboard 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. A summary of feedback survey results from students regarding their experiences with video in the course will be 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. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the session and see first-hand a demo by the instructor of how the video was seamlessly incorporated into Blackboard Learn.

    46. 46. #BbWorld14 Feedback Surveys
    47. 47. #BbWorld14 I viewed Dr. J’s weekly unit introduction videos… 0 5 10 15 20 25 Unit folder in Bb Announcements on course front page Announcement emailed to me From YouTube channel Options for Viewing Instructor Videos (n=21) 20 11 4 2
    48. 48. #BbWorld14 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 48
    49. 49. #BbWorld14 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 49
    50. 50. #BbWorld14 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 50
    51. 51. #BbWorld14 Lessons Learned • Students find video communications and resources very helpful • Videos don’t need to be polished to be effective • YouTube’s built-in transcription features make providing accessible video quick and easy! • Auto captioning, while not perfect, can make other YouTube videos accessible

    53. 53. #BbWorld14 5 Tips for Getting Started 1. Keep your videos “quick and dirty” 2. Keep videos under 10 min in length (5-8 min is ideal) 3. Record in quiet location, eliminate background noise whenever possible 4. Use consistent recording volume level 5. Embed videos in LMS with rest of the content for each unit/module/week
