Learning with videos: Design principles for creating educational video

Friday, 18 March, 2016 - 12:30 to 14:00

Speakers:  Miss. Maya BOGDANOVA & Ms. Amy CHONG
                  Instructional Designers, Center for Education Innovation

Format: Seminar

Today, our students no longer rely only on lecture-notes and textbooks to access information and study. They watch videos to learn how to use software, how to solve mathematical equations, how to operate machines, and how to code. Thanks to platforms such as YouTube and Youku, educational content is created and delivered by anybody with knowledge to share and a camera.

Creating your own video content has never been easier, however, the technology is not everything. For educational videos to engage the learner, technical skills have to be coupled with sound pedagogical and instructional principles. This seminar aims to bring you just that – design principles and tips on creating your own educational videos, as well as examples of activities that can engage the learners with your video content.

In this seminar, the presenters have shown some up to date recommendations based on the latest research and shared their experience of providing instructional-design support for over 30 UST courses that use video to deliver content. Templates, checklists and additional resources have also been provided to help get started.

In this seminar, the participants also learnt about how to:

  • identify good pedagogical practices for the creation of educational video
  • outline the basic workflow of the video creation process
  • evaluate available technologies for video/audio recording
