|With the increasing availability of broadband interest, mobile devices, cameras, and editing software, video has become an increasingly common way to communicate and share ideas. This course will explore the impact of video on higher education in Australia, and look at how and why video might be used in your university teaching practice. It will discuss the affordances of video, and investigate what factors make videos effective for student learning. We'll look at a variety of examples of educational videos, and think about what types of videos can be used in different disciplines. |
This course is Part 1 of a series on Video, with Part 2 exploring the practical aspects of creating your own videos, including what types of software, how to film yourself, and how to successfully integrate the videos you create into your teaching. You are welcome to sign up for either or both of the courses.
