Professor's Guide to Creating Video ^ free eBook

Professor's Guide to Creating Video ^ free eBook | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it

"Whether you’re practicing flipped or blended learning in your classroom, set the occasional video assignment, or have just observed that your students are part of the Netflix generation, you’ve likely seen what a powerful tool video can be for teaching and learning. And, while there’s certainly a wealth of great educational content available online, sometimes you — and your students — will want to create your own.

 

"Terrific news: It’s never been easier to create great video content! We know that quality matters; viewers rarely find shaky, inaudible and poorly lit video terribly engaging. But, an understanding of commonly available software, tools and basic production techniques is all you (and your students) need to create great quality video content. Best of all, you probably have most of the tools you need sitting on your desk right now. In this guide we’ll cover everything you need to know to produce educational and instructional videos using your PC and webcam. Why create your own video content?"

 

02 What you need to get started

03 Webcam and screen recording software

04 Upgrading your microphone

05 Upgrading your camera

05 Recording video on a smartphone or tablet

06 Production

06 Planning your video

07 Recording crystal–clear sound

08 Getting the most out of your webcam

09 Post–production

10 Adding titles

10 Adjusting volume levels 1

10 Removing background noise and fine–tuning your voiceover

11 Adding closed captions for accessibility

第一类是引起学生注意:1。吸引我; 2激励我。

第二类是告诉学生:3告诉我; 4给我看。

低三类是让学生自己行动:5.让我来;6.支持我;7.让我做的更好;8.让我产生价值。

Helen Teague's curator insight, June 11, 4:37 PM

In the constructivist-learning model, engagement and experience combine with immersive environments and self-organisation of knowledge to establish a context in which learning occurs naturally. Constructivism has since the time of Dewey become closely affiliated with Project Based Learning and yet despite years of efforts to refine the process the result does not always match the promise (Scheer, Noweski and Meinel. 2012). Scheer et al. argue that ‘Design Thinking’ is capable of providing

Toolkit: Homepage | CARLI

While the new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education was filed by the ACRL Board in February, 2015, and was a major topic of discussion at ACRL 2015 in Portland, many academic librarians still question how to use the new Framework in library instruction. Since 2013, the CARLI Instruction Showcase has offered academic librarians from Illinois the opportunity to share tips, tricks, and techniques they have used in library instruction. This Toolkit maps those instructional activities taught at the CARLI Instruction Showcase to the Framework, with the hopes that instruction librarians can use these presentations as resources for creating and/or re-imagining their own library instruction to accord with the Frames.

Being able to successfully learn in sometimes challenging ways, is as important if not more important, as learning in the way we 'prefer'.
