How about producing a stunning video montage for promotional and marketing? Or a video slideshow for personal use? Yes, anyone can do it! This course is designed to teach the necessary basic skill to anyone interested in DIY video production.
Yes, creating video content nowadays is unbelievably easy and straightforward even for non-tech savvy. It could be fun as well! With just one click of mouse, you can create a teaching video by recording anything displayed on your computer screen or create a stunning video montage as seen in the promotional/introductory video of this course.
Why would you want to create video content for teaching or instructional purposes? Imagine your students can listen to you speaking while they are on the bus, walking to the gym or doing their chores. If you have watched a video tutorial on YouTube or other video sharing sites, then you should appreciate the value of these resources in education. All you need is a simple web-based application or an app.
This course will provide hands-on training on how to produce screencasts and rapid video content and discover how these tools can effectively enhance the teaching and learning environment of your courses. With the right techniques, making an engaging teaching or training video can be accomplished with little more than a smartphone, tablet or laptop.
You will also learn how to create a stunning video montage and video slideshow for personal or professional use (such as video for promotion, marketing, etc.).
I'll be covering EIGHT important applications in this course—four applications (Loom, Screencastify, Go Video, Soapbox) for screencasting (screen recording) and four applications (Lumen5, Biteable, Adobe Spark, Animoto) for creating video montage, video animation and video story. They are all FREE, web-based (nothing to install), simple and intuitive. Most of the applications are relatively new but increasingly popular because of their simplicity and the stunning quality of the products.
