To Spice Up Course Work, Professors Make Their Own Videos
Young, Jeffrey R.
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v74 n2 p48-50 Oct 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 educators are putting the tools to educational use. 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 some of the gear needed to make short supplementary videos.
