Want to liven up your courses with relevant multimedia materials? Take a look at the following list for some ideas.
- For quick courses messages, such as announcements, use the built-in CarmenCanvas video recording tool.
- For real-life teaching moments, such as demonstrations and tours, you may have the right tools already! Here are some tips and tricks for recording (and editing) videos using your smartphone and/or tablet (courtesy of Office of Distance Education and eLearning).
- For webinars and sessions with remote experts, there is a great tool supported by OSU called CarmenConnect, which includes recording functionality. Here is a collection of information regarding the tool.
- For small-group web conferences that do not need to be recorded, VMCA and VMC 100 both have a high quality solution
- If you have projects that you would like to produce long-lasting videos with high production values, let us know! The Denney Hall Digital Union on main campus might be the right solution for you.
- Your course materials should support its learning outcomes.
- Outline/script your videos first! This would help keeping your videos/segments short and concise (~ 6-7 minutes). This can apply to lecture capture as well – for example, clearly signal where one segment ends and where another one begins.
- If you are using slides, be as concise as possible, and don’t include excessive text, visuals and/or animations that do not support learning outcomes – they are actually distracting and harmful to learning.
