Webcasting, lecture capture now became integral to education, survey administered by Kaltura found. They say that universities are using video more frequently as part of regular education. You can read more about the study here. To read more about video in instruction and ways to create video, please go to my Diigo collection. Interested about videoconferencing?

As always, great tips from Free Technology for Teachers!
One of the suggested activities for flipped lesson is to have students submit videos to you that they locate, review, and annotate.
We just had a situation recently during the HEA workshops in November when people did not want to be in the video. It was very difficult logistically to organize and separate those who were ok to be in the video clip and those who opted out. FT4T offers 2 options. Check them out.
For various reasons we sometimes cannot use YouTube at NU (inappropriate ads, slow downloads, blocked content, etc. ). Here, thanks to FT4T, you can find 47 (!) alternatives. Try them out.
What a great resource for our students! Please consider using it for your courses, projects, and research.

From Practical EdTech:
“Microsoft appears to have taken a page from Google’s playbook, encouraging employees to “turn their wild ideas into real projects” and calling the effort Microsoft Garage. One of the results of this initiative is the new “Snip” tool for Windows. Snip is a screen capture and annotation tool (or just a ‘whiteboard’ if you want it). It makes it really easy to create instructional videos by writing or drawing on a screen ‘snip’ and saving the resulting video as an MP4 file”. Read the full article.
We might keep this in mind when creating video resources for our students.
“Animated flashcards and sub-two-minute videos turn out to be the most effective online resources for K-12 against all other common options. That’s the finding determined by OpenEd, which recently studied the data generated from the results of assessments given to students who used its free online resources for educational purposes.” See more here.

There are many ways of producing videos. It might be great if students engage in videography and animation for their projects. See this post from FT4T about “Create Stop Motion Animations with KomaKoma“. Potential usage in the classroom:
- Demonstrating mathematics understanding with manipulatives and/or hand writing
- Showing the process carried out of a science experiment step by step
- Using the time lapse feature to study a slow moving process
“Educational videos lasting 10 minutes or less may be the optimal length, according to The State of Video in Education survey, which highlights trends in video use in schools. Data also show a majority — 91% — of respondents believe video can boost student satisfaction. More
The best flipped courses provide students with compelling, interactive learning content to hold their attention outside of class. Here are five ways to take lecture videos to the next level.
