Episode PA025: Recording Videos for Your Classes

by Jim and Beth Harger | The Professional Adjunct Podcast

This week we discuss some of the things that go into recording videos for our classes. We begin by asking the question why videos. Jim makes the comment that if you do only one video for your course, make it your introduction and welcome to class. Students appreciate a welcome video because it helps them to get to know who you are and what you are all about. We then discuss the purpose of our videos followed by a discussion of the equipment we use. Next week, we will continue with a look at technique and how to upload your videos.

We have updated our logo and website! You can now find us at www.proadjunct.com. On our website, you will find the video lesson, How to Make a Good Video for Your Course. For a limited time, we are making this course available to our listeners at no cost. This is a five-part training course that includes tips and techniques to recording videos, including example videos, how to upload the videos to YouTube, how to embed your videos in Blackboard, and a look at some of the equipment options to record videos.

If you record videos for your classes, let us know how you do it. Perhaps we will include your tips in a future episode.  You can post a comment on our website, www.proadjunct.com, or send us an email at comments@proadjunct.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
