Beginner’s Guide To: Producing Their First Youtube Tutorial

Beginner’s Guide To: Producing Their First Youtube Tutorial | Coach Jeffery's: Teaching with Technology | Scoop.it

This post provides a tutorial that will show readers how to produce high quality YouTube tutorial without the use of a studio or even a video camera.

 

Users will mak a How-to video tutorial, or product introduction with voice over and subtitles.

 

YouTube has a function to translate the captions so that viewers from all over the world can understand what is in the video.

 

Subtitles also make YouTube tutorials text searchable so people can find them easily. It’s best to keep the length of the video in under 6 minutes – people don’t like to watch a video if it is too long.

Clyp.it is one of easiest-to-use audio recording tools that I've tried.

To record on Clyp.it users simply go to the website and click the big record button (they may have to allow pop-ups in their browser in order for Clyp.it to access their microphone).

When they've done recording, they click the share button and are taken to a page on which they can download their recording or grab an embed code to post the recording within a web presence.
Clyp.it is also available to use as a free iOS app or as a free Android app.

In the past, this application would be used in a collaborative sense to connect geographically dispersed learners. This article displays virtual collaboration reinvented through several of the mentioned activities. If Skype had a recording feature this would provide even more affordances to further reinvent itself within the e-learning realm.

Kelly's curator insight, February 23, 11:00 PM

While Skype offers an additional option, it is limited by the 1:1 connection (unless you pay for an upgraded version) as well as the inability to screenshare, etc. However, it may be a very good option when looking at international connections and low-cost alternatives and should not be summarily dismissed.

As always you just have to have rich imagination and ideas how to use tools for creative and useful educational purposes  and it works!!! :)

“ Acclaim facilitates constructive, educational discussions and feedback around video content.”
Via John Dalziel
more...
John Dalziel's curator insight, February 1, 10:30 AM

Acclaim is a web presence for practitioners facilitating discussion around video content.
It allows learners and practitioners to share questions, notes, and feedback by inserting time-specific comments that link to moments in each video.
Each comment is clickable, and once clicked, the video will jump to the specific moment that is being discussed.
Learners can see and respond to comments from their practitioner and peers at any time.
Users add videos to Acclaim in one of three different ways:
   - By embedding YouTube or Vimeo clips;
   - By uploading video files stored on a hard drive or mobile device; and/or
   - By using the built-in webcam feature to create and upload a video in real time.
Acclaim promotes learner engagement by encouraging discussion in a responsive and asynchronous format.
Using Acclaim as part of a flipped learning model, practitioners could...

   - assign video content for viewing as homework, and ask learners to share their thoughts and insights in the form of discussions with fellow classmates.
OR
   - in performance based-courses, such as dance, public speaking, and trial law, learners may record themselves using the webcam feature, and receive precise feedback from their practitioners and peers about areas of excellence, as well as points for improvement.
Acclaim hones critical thinking, listening, analytical and observational skills.
Acclaim also has built in privacy management, which can be reassuring to learners with anxiety about their performance or concerns about public critique.
Users can create secure folders based around course units and assignments, then grant access to specific learners or peers on a limited basis.

John Dalziel's curator insight, February 9, 4:15 AM

Skaffl could provide a solution for practitioners who want a simple way to distribute and collect assignments without wading through a myriad of extra features that they won’t use.
Skaffl is a free iPad app that is designed to help practitioners...
   - distribute,
   - collect, and
   - grade assignments
...on their iPad.
On Skaffl practitioners can create 'classrooms' that their learners join through a class code.
Once a 'classroom' is created practitioners can distribute assignments and hand-outs to their learners.
Assignments can be created in the app or practitioners can attach items created outside of the Skaffl app.
Their learners can submit work through the app.
Practitioners can grade their learners’ assignments directly within the app.
Assignments that aren’t going to be graded (a rough draft of an essay, for example) can be annotated by practitioners to provide learners with ungraded feedback.
To sum up, with Skaffl
Practitioners can:
   - Create activities for students to complete
   - Plan ahead and save activities for distribution when you need them

   - Collect student work

   - Annotate and grade student assignments
Learners can:
   - Get their assignments and keep track of due dates
   - Hand in their assignments from other apps
   - Annotate and complete written assignments
   - Ask questions directly to their teachers using assignment comments

John Dalziel's curator insight, February 10, 6:30 AM

Typeform takes a completely fresh approach to asking questions online and puts user experience and engagement at the forefront. Optimized to look stunning on all devices (desktop and mobile), Typeform is well worth exploring as your go-to tool for...
   - polling,
   - quizzing,
   - surveying
...and engaging...
   - learners,
   - staff
   - employers or
   - any other stakeholders.
Typeform isn't a dedicated assessment platform, but it's an ideal place to put together...
   - a short quiz,
   - a test or
   - a poll.
Users can style and design their questions in hundreds of innovative and fun ways as well as embed images and video to make your test informative as well as evaluative.
NOTE: With a Typeform account users can review the results of every form they've created in the application, and they can also have Typeform pass results into a Google Spreadsheet.
This offers a lot more portability of data for...
   - printing,
   - exporting or
   - simply collating for later use.
If practitioners are comfortable with their learners using their email to signup to Typeform, the tool can be of great value in many different areas of study.
Typeform can be used for research to poll or survey opinions and feedback. While it is easy to deliver forms digitally using social media or email, one more interactive way is to take advantage of the mobile interface and have students poll attendees in person using devices at events or in public.

AudioPal, a free service, offers three way to create short audio messages to embed in any web presence.
Users can...
   - record using the microphone connected to their computer;
   - record by calling AudioPal's phone system; or
   - create a message by using AudioPal's text-to-speech function.
AudioPal has many potential uses within education but does require users enter an email address in order to access the embed code and sharing links.

If learners don't have email accounts, practitioners could set-up a classroom Gmail account that all learners enter.

All of the AudioPal messages that their learners create would then go to that one email account that they manage.

John Dalziel's curator insight, January 28, 3:56 AM

From the practitioner's perspective, I like Desmos activities because they are able to see their learners' progress as they go through the games and have a record of their activity.
If I were using them in my learning environment, I would probably have the "teacher's dashboard" on screen (or even projected) so that I (or everyone) can see who is making progress.
NOTE: Practitioners and learners don't HAVE to be in the same room all together. On-line practitioners can see multiple learners at the same time.
Overall, I think that Desmos is a tool that math practitioners should check out. I think their learners would enjoy them, too.

Activities can be viewed at...

Thematic is designed for building and sharing visual stories, allowing users to display up to twenty pictures organized around a theme of their choosing.
After importing pictures users can add one line of text to each image in their story and rearrange the sequence in which their images appear on their screen.
The resulting story is displayed in a vertically scrolling format with each of the images occupying all of the available space within the browser.
Completed stories can be shared publicly or kept private.
Each public story can be shared via Twitter, Facebook, email, or embedding into a webpage.
I recommend importing high resolution images as smaller images will become pixelated when enlarged to Thematic's full size. After importing your pictures you can add text and rearrange the sequence in which your images appear on your screen.
