Clearly, today’s students pay attention to video far more than print or even graphics. In this course you’ll get comfortable with the technical issues surrounding videos, including finding, making, and sharing them, and ways to make them a regular part of your teaching toolkit. You will learn to 1) find and use videos relevant to your courses, 2) convert existing presentations to video, and 3) record and embellish your own videos and animated graphics with sophisticated software for use in weekly lessons, demonstrations, explanations, or just “welcome to the class!” It’s time to enhance your own instruction with video! Note: Video production is time-consuming and computer intensive. Participants must commit to 5-7 hours per week, participation in the weekly forums, and minimally have a 64-bit multimedia computer running Windows 10 or MacOS10.14, a 1366x768 monitor, and good internet access.
Tuition is free! Satisfactory completers of the Practicum will receive a certificate and a stipend!
