Creating Learning Nuggets on the Fly - Online Educa 2015

  1. 1. "Creating Learning Nuggets on the Fly" OEB 2015 | Knut Linke Hochschule Weserbergland Wir bilden Zukunft.
  2. 2. Our session • Introduction Learning Nuggets Open IT • Learning Nuggets Basics • Technology I: Microphone & WebCams • Creating a small learning nugget • Technology II: Studio and Production setup • Learning Nuggets Production Details • Technology III: Choosing the right Application • Questions
  3. 3. The Open IT Research Project
  4. 4. Open IT Research Project • Research project between the University of Applied Sciences Weserbergland (HSW) and the Technical University Darmstadt (2015-2018) • Research focus is on the crediting of vocational training for academic studies in the sector of IT • Research result should be special part-time academic offers (Bachelor/Master) for IT practitioner with a background from the field of IHK training (Fachinformatiker, IT Specialist , Operative Professional) • Study participants needs to be trained in advanced in academic basics
  5. 5. E-Learning for Open IT • For the new target group bridging courses are required within the subjects of Mathematics, Business/IT-Administration and Project Management • The bridging focuses on beginner courses and should be used in addition to match students and requirements • Student project (2015/2016) to review the existing technology for the production of video content • Reproduction of existing Learning Nuggets
  6. 6. Learning Nuggets
  7. 7. What is a Learning Nugget • A Learning Nugget is a small learning unit – Focus on a small aspect of a topic – Also known as a micro learning content – Explains an aspect in detail – Maybe received as part of subscription learning – Duration period should be between 3-7 minutes • Learning Nuggets can be independent or related to other Learning Nuggets (a course)
  8. 8. How we use Learning Nuggets • The HSW uses a duration time of 7-15 minutes for their videos – replacement of fixed topics with Learning Nuggets (Flipped Classroom approach/Virtual flipped classroom approach) • Focus is not only on the transfer of knowledge; we are focussing on a confirmation approach of existing knowlegde • Supported by E-Examinations
  9. 9. Technology I
  10. 10. T1: Microphone & Webcam Assumptions/Learnings: • Sound quality is important for the duration rate – Students are listening to the video (and not mainly watching them) • A view on the lecturer increase the duration rate of a Learning Nugget – Interaction – I can see what is happening – „Face2Face“ – I can see how is speaking – This does not mean that the speaker has always to be in the video
  11. 11. T1: Microphone & Webcam Recommended Hardware: • Standard WebCam or external WebCam – i. E. from Logitech/Microsoft (PnP-Experts) – 1080p Solution/25 Fps is recommended – Maybe use an additional tripod to increase the distance • Internal Microphone is not recommended – Headset or additional table Microphone (remember the ambient noise and the directivity you need)
  12. 12. Practical Part I Creating a small learning nugget
  13. 13. Creating a Learning Nugget • What do I want/need to transfer? • What CI/CD do I have to follow/use (Template)? • Do any legal restrictions apply? – Which images do I use? – Do I use internal information? • How can the content be presented? – Don’t be to offensive or improper – Rethink your personal behavior – But(!) remember your target group • How many time do I have (Storytelling)?
  14. 14. WHAT IS A LEARNING NUGGET? E-Learning Basics:
  15. 15. What is a Learning Nugget? • A Learning Nugget is a small learning unit – Focus on a small aspect of a topic – Also known as a micro learning content – Explains an aspect in detail – Maybe received as part of subscription learning – Duration period should be between 3-7 minutes • Learning Nuggets can be independent or related to other Learning Nuggets (a course)
  16. 16. Learning Nuggets can be used for: • For Teachers and Lectures – Replacement of PowerPointPresentations (Flipped Classroom/Inverted Classroom) – Repeating of basic or providing of additional information • For Employee Content Development – Temporary Replacement/Internal Training – Knowledge Sharing
  17. 17. Thank you for your attention
  18. 18. ... Time for Camtasia/Cutting ...
  19. 19. Can it be better?
  20. 20. Technology II
  21. 21. T2: Studio and Production Setup • Let‘s setup an small studio... This might include: A GreenScreen A dedicated Audio Connection Camera (HDMI) Additional Lightning (don‘t forget the clothespin)
  22. 22. Practical Part II Creating a better learning nugget
  23. 23. WHAT IS A LEARNING NUGGET? E-Learning Basics:
  24. 24. What is a Learning Nugget? • A Learning Nugget is a small learning unit – Focus on a small aspect of a topic – Also known as a micro learning content – Explains an aspect in detail – Maybe received as part of subscription learning – Duration period should be between 3-7 minutes • Learning Nuggets can be independent or related to other Learning Nuggets (a course)
  25. 25. Learning Nuggets can be used for: • For Teachers and Lectures – Replacement of PowerPointPresentations (Flipped Classroom/Inverted Classroom) – Repeating of basic or providing of additional information • For Employee Content Development – Temporary Replacement/Internal Training – Knowledge Sharing
  26. 26. Thank you for your attention
  27. 27. PRODUCTION DETAILS (HINTS, ISSUES AND CHANCES...)
  28. 28. Storytelling & Production • Use a story or use case which helps you recipients to identify them with your videos (like an additional practical work) • Keep it short and keep it simple • Know the time you need and the time you can use (a long video increase the dropout rate) • Work rapid/standardized if possible • Reproduce instead of „work around“
  29. 29. Keying & Spill • Keying  Inverted Mask/Inverted Edge • Spill  Right lightning/Color Setting Source: https://www.youtube.com/user/HSWeserbergland/videos
  30. 30. Transitions & Design • Use the right transitions for your Learning Nugget (Black or White Screen) • Work TV and target group oriented • Setup a standard template together with the marketing department and stakeholders / producers to fulfil the Corporate Identity • Select the right color intension if possible or needed
  31. 31. Technology III
  32. 32. T3: The correct application During our research project we reevaluated the used application for the production of Learning Nuggets. We tested: • Solutions by Magix (Video Deluxe) • Solutions by TechSmith (Studio) • Solutions by Adobe (Premiere, After Effects)
  33. 33. Offers by Magix Positive: - Low Price - Easy of use Negative: - Standard Keying (Basic version) - Transitions might be hard to set - Limited functionality
  34. 34. TechSmith Camtasia Studio Positive: - Comparable Low Price - Easy of use - Focus on Rapid Video Production Negative: - Issues with media formats - Possible issues with long videos/movies - Working with text is a fussy job
  35. 35. Adobe Premiere Positive: - Works perfectly with everykind of media - Excellent for on-demand cutting - Integration within the Adobe world Negative: - Price - Usability/Operation - Keying is not the same quality as After Effects
  36. 36. Adobe After Effects Positive: - Works perfectly with everykind of media - Excellent support via additional plugins - Integration within Adobe/Photoshop Negative: - Price - Usability/Operation - Hardware Requirements
  37. 37. • You might wanna look on the following applications for animations: – PowerPoint – Prezi – VideoScripe Others (37)
