Professor's Guide to Creating Video ^ free eBook | Visual*~*Revolution | 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
