I've been messing around with making videos for many years now. I've seen a lot of different programs and ways of doing this. Below you will find links to things I've used and would recommend. I also note which ones I use specifically.
Tools of the Trade
- Using a Computer - Computers have the most power and offer the most options when it comes to creating content for your students. All of these options and power can often be a bit intimidating when it comes to actually doing it though. In this section I will attempt to break it down to make it more accessible for you.
- Using a Mobile Device - More and more I find I'm relying on my iPad or iPhone for creating instructional videos for my students. Sometimes I use an app to record the screen and sometimes I use the built in camera. In either case using a mobile device you may already own greatly lowers the bar when it comes to flipping your class.
So you've got some great videos? Where do you put them? Hopefully I have one listed that is not blocked in your school/district. Barring that, hopefully I can give you some that might be more palatable to your technology director. Don't forget that you can always upload your videos to the Mi-Learning section of iTunesU.
