Creating Effective Educational Videos

Instructor-produced educational videos can be an important component of instruction and content delivery. When made well, they enhance student learning and engagement and provide excellent opportunities for teaching and exploration.

Videos can be used for many different purposes, such as:

  • Quick introduction for a course or unit
  • Screencast or narrated PowerPoint
  • Teaching when absent
  • Makeup lecture for bad weather
  • Demonstration or tutorial
