Film School: To Spice Up Course Work, Professors Make Their Own Videos
Young, Jeffrey R.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v54 n34 pA13 May 2008
College faculty members have recently begun creating homemade videos to supplement their lectures, using free or low-cost software. These are the same technologies that make it easy for students to post spoof videos on YouTube, but the scholars are putting the tools to educational use. The professors say that students tune in to the short videos more often than they look at the recordings of lectures. After all, the students already sat through the lectures once (the professors hope). In this article, the author discusses how educators are embracing do-it-yourself technology to make short online videos to supplement their lectures.
