Making Effective Videos for Education
Welcome to Making Effective Videos for Education. In this Learning X series, we will guide you through the key steps for making effective videos for education, focusing on practical and basic video creation principles in the following 5 sections:
- Engagement and delivery style
- Video ready teaching materials
- Recording video for education
- Editing video for education
Our goal in this learning X is to give you practical advice and guidance based on current academic evidence. We will also include tool suggestions and links to further reading and online, ‘how-to’ video tutorials.
While you may not consider yourself a video producer, it is hoped that this series will help you to develop your own video creation style, learning what works for you and your given audience. The videos that you make will have an impact on your students learning, so we want to help you make the most of the opportunity to create the best, most effective resources that you can.
We will be releasing new content daily with examples, questions and in some cases activities to engage with. Each day we will focus on one of the video creation principles. You can apply these principles to video projects that your are about to undertake or even one that you have already completed and that you want to overhaul. It will help if you keep your projects in mind when going through this Learning X series.
