Creating Videos for Instruction

Short videos that really work
Alice Keeler  works at California State University Fresno as Teacher and Technology Coach. Attends Boise State University.

"When I create my videos in one shot I pause, I think about what I am going to say, I ramble. I have a lot of seconds that could be edited out. Record yourself saying the information you are trying to get across. Now do it again in 30 second or less segments (Mine are usually about 12 seconds.) Put together in a playlist. Compare the total run time. Same content. My 20-minute video went down to 7 minutes!"
