The plan is to make instructional videos about Moodle. I’m the sole instructional technologist and support 120+ faculty members. If I can create videos that demonstrate features, my hope is that it will save us both time and will allow me to be more effective. After creating two videos, I’ve learned the importance of writing a script.
If you’re looking to make some instructional videos, I highly recommend “They Came for the Carbs, and Stayed for the
Collaboration: Engaging Library Workers across
Units to Deliver Meaningful Learning Objects” published in ACRL. The appendices are especially helpful. One thing I learned was the importance of adding a short feedback form after the video in order to improve the videos and/or discover gaps in learning. My first two video are embedded below.
If you’ve made instructional videos, what are some things that made them effective? If you experienced bad results, in terms of learning, what may have caused that?
