YouTube, not WeTube: Empowering Instructors to Create and Deploy Media JOHN MAKEVICH INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN COORDINATOR COLLEGE OF THE CANYONS SANTA CLARITA, CA
The reason for this presentation At our school, many faculty expressed a hesitance to creating media because of: Lack of support staff Fear of the time it will take Worry about doing it “right” Objective: to introduce methods and strategies by which an individual faculty member can successfully create valuable content for students without any support.
The Myths: Are They True? I don’t have time to set up the camera and tripod every day I teach to capture my full lecture. I need to produce quality recorded content, so my amateur filming with a camcorder won’t cut it. Where’s my lapel microphone? I teach five classes. I just don’t have time to edit the content I produce and make it available to students in the same term.
The Assumed Equipment – Do you need all this? Professional video camera, possibly HD Lapel mic for quality audio Tripod Audio/visual staff (perhaps) to do the filming Audio/visual staff (perhaps) to do the editing Captioning? And, in the words of James Hutton, famous geologist, “time, immeasurable time”
Wow! Really? If your school has all these resources: great! Many schools do not Instructors have to do it on their own Based on previous description, very difficult
What do the students need? Fundamental questions Do students expect a studio-quality production? Do student benefit from this quality, or does it take away? Full lecture video (math) Short lesson on linear equations (math) Don’t think about the presenters in these videos nor the topic. Focus instead on the delivery methods
Is there a Better…Is there a Worse? Questions to ask yourself? Which videos did effective teaching? Did the “professional” recording of the lecture serve as a better teaching tool than the screen capture recording? Which video required more resources (likely)?
From Problem to Solution At our school, we have limited resources 1 Instructional Designer (me), spending much of my time training and meeting individually with faculty…not much video time Small, helpful A/V staff; calendar full Larger, also helpful computer support staff; calendar still full Though we could piece it together for a video occasionally, it’s tough to get all these resources on a frequent basis for production Solving the problem: find a way to get each faculty to be confident enough to make content alone!
Some equipment Portable audio recorder Flip Video (Olympus audio recorders) (http://www.theflip.com) Audacity (free audio editing Camtasia (screen capture; application for Windows captioning) and Mac)
The Production Steps We’ll use audio as an example. Record (with tripod if you like) Upload (easy to do with Flip or portable audio recorders)
The Editing Steps May or may not need to edit What kinds of editing? Basic splitting of clips and reorganizing content Full on sound editing, adding still images to clip, etc. How do you choose?
Other advantages Media becomes more “live” Are there advantages to creating more spontaneous content? Examples? Avoid having to work out schedule conflicts with the rest of the staff What else?
Let’s try this out… Quick audio recording Upload Edit, if you like Put into online course
