Creating video content

Video and audio are excellent mediums for creating fresh and engaging content for your students. Video is especially good for creating social presence and communicating complex visual information. It will no doubt play a very important part of your blended delivery, and you will want to get the most out of the hardware and software available to you.

Fortunately, below you will find a range of self-help resources on how to use both video and audio in your teaching to get you started.

Types of Video

Videos can be an important part of your blended delivery. To keep your content fresh for students, we recommend using a variety of video types in your teaching.

Thinking beyond video

Video is an effective educational tool and offers a rich learning experience for students. However, it is not a silver bullet. Video content is often passive and isn't always the best way for students to learn. Consider using online teaching techniques that encourage learners to actively engage with each other and construct their own meaning around information. 

When you do use video, provide students with opportunities to reinforce their learning using quizzes, discussion posts, and meaningful reflective activities.
