Simple Techniques for Applying Active Learning Strategies to Online Course Videos | Faculty Focus

Simple Techniques for Applying Active Learning Strategies to Online Course Videos | Faculty Focus | 3C Media Solutions | Scoop.it
From Web-enhanced face-to-face courses to MOOCs, flipped, blended, and fully online courses, videos are an integral component of today’s educational landscape—from kindergarten all the way through higher education.

Via Mark Smithers, Kim Flintoff
Blaine Morrow's insight:

"Videos are great for presenting visual information and emotional appeals, but not particularly effective at diving below the surface of non-visual theoretical or abstract topics or for driving critical thinking. What’s more, any video presented in class must compete for attention and memory with the five-plus hours the typical student spends outside of class watching television programs, movies, and other onscreen entertainment. (Nielsen, 2013)"

Using iMovie and Keynote to Make a Web-Based Keynote | Inside Higher Ed

Using iMovie and Keynote to Make a Web-Based Keynote | Inside Higher Ed | 3C Media Solutions | Scoop.it
Blaine Morrow's insight:

"If you have access to iMovie and Keynote, the potential for all sorts of projects using this method is pretty grand. While you won't be able to do live-action screen captures (see Camtasia), this method is certainly a terrific option. One thing that I would highly recommend is that you always use a high quality USB microphone. Audio can make or break a video. My microphone is mounted on a heavy duty mic stand that allows me to suspend the mic above my head. Note that in this case, captions weren't added, however, there are numerous captioning solutions on the web."

Tips for Choosing an Online Video Platform (OVP)

Tips for Choosing an Online Video Platform (OVP) | 3C Media Solutions | Scoop.it
Companies looking for an OVP often chase the wrong features. It's not what the OVP can do, but what platforms it integrates with easily.
Blaine Morrow's insight:

"

Too often, people create very long lists of technical requirements which, to a point are useful, but the reality is OVPs, they generally all do more or less the same thing and the difference is more how they do it and what technology they use to make it happen, and also what channels they tend to be more inclined to distribute to and integrate with more easily,” Regli continues.

What’s useful is thinking about the other technologies you’re already using, including your in-house workflow and your content management system. You want an OVP that easily connects to the systems you currently have in place."

SparkReel To Go (starting around $10,000) lets brands build the hub into their site, blog, or Facebook page, but still carries SparkReel branding. Finally, SparkReel Premium (starting around $30,000) integrates into all your properties and has customized branding. Visit the SparkReel site for more details on the plans.

Animoto Partners with Vimeo for Pro Premium Plan

Animoto Partners with Vimeo for Pro Premium Plan | 3C Media Solutions | Scoop.it
Companies get easy video creation, a variety of advanced features, and a Vimeo Pro account with the new Animoto plan.
Blaine Morrow's insight:

The new Pro Premium account costs $499 per year and adds several features on top of that. The big addition, though, is that it includes a Vimeo Pro account — itself a $200 per year value. Vimeo Pro allows 1080p video streaming, a video player that supports custom branding, and custom video and portal pages. It also gives brands the option to sell their videos online.

But there’s more to Animoto Pro Premium than a Vimeo Pro account. The plan offers 3,000 music tracks and lets brands add custom branding to their work with post-roll videos. The ability to put a call-to-action inside a video should help sales. This new plan also comes with phone support and includes analytics.

Digital Video Is New Again…What?
ClickZ
Digital video has been around for a while now and we've actually become very good at distributing it, certainly via YouTube and other video hosts and as pre- and post-roll.
Blaine Morrow's insight:

"The biggest challenges are around creating great video content at reasonable expense and then mastering the "converged media" landscape where owned, earned, and paid all work together to drive outcomes. There's nothing new here for us seasoned (jaded) digital marketers. Video is yet another "native" ad type to be leveraged across customer touch points, online and off-. A content type we're really excited about if we can get the good stuff."
