Week 2: Creating High Quality Blended Instruction
Our goal this week is to understand what high-quality blended instruction is, and how to create it.
The Instructional Video Process
Step 1: Planning
Create your slides / doc (or something else) that you will screencast when you record your video.
Step 2: Recording
Use a screencast recording tool to record your video. Pro tip: Go for done not perfect!
Step 3: Enhancing
Students learn more from videos when they are prompted to engage actively. Use embedded questions and guided notes.
Step 4: Sharing
Use your LMS as a launching pad for all of your self-paced resources. Consider how you might organize your materials in a clear manner within your LMS.
