Many years ago, I worked at SFU, purchasing and booking videos for university instructors to use the classroom. I'm now at ACT - Autism Community Training, and we video some of our presentations so that we can put them online.
These two very different experiences got me thinking about video - not the "how to record and edit", but the "why bother" half of the discussion.
How do you currently use video in your teaching, or how have you seen it used? You might wish to dicuss your objectives, contraints and priorities.
My answer: We're currently taping day-long events, which run a total of about 6 talking hours. We break that into four chunks that follow the actual talking time, broken up by coffee breaks and lunch. This makes it easier for our editor to identify where the breaks are and makes the editing cheaper. We host the videos in our instance of Moodle and charge our users a nominal fee to access the videos. We chose to record because our potential audience is all over BC, and attending face to face workshops isn't feasible. It's our beginning steps to making our training opportunities more accessible, but of course in a cost effective manner! (www.actcommunity.net/videos)
