Making educational YouTube videos: Teacher-created content
This crash course in educational video creation will go through educational script writing and branding, filming, lighting, and camera equipment, all the way through to editing and video dissemination through social media and educational platforms. Research shows that educational videos hold attention more effectively than traditional lectures and textbooks. They can facilitate discussion on subjects, demonstrate experiments and homework activities, and provide instruction outside of classroom time. Over time, creating videos can reduce teacher workload as they build a library of evergreen resources to share with students. Learn to create your own in this hands-on session with three experienced YouTube creators!
