EDU 921 Effective Video Production
Examines the ways in which video content can effectively deliver instruction to the classroom. Through shooting original content, editing original and existing material, and production, teachers will investigate ways to deliver intended messages in multiple content areas. Connects with the ISTE standards for student learning and creativity.
Video can be a highly effective tool in delivering meaningful content in the classroom. Both teachers and students can utilize video in a variety of productive ways to support classroom learning. In today’s technologically advanced classrooms, videos can effectively deliver instruction. This course will help participants capture a powerful message or lesson on video. Participants will take part in shooting the content, editing the material, and producing a finished product that effectively delivers their intended message. Strategies will be implemented to encompass the teachers’ main ideas, and highlight them with added editing techniques.
This course is for classroom educators who want to be able to infuse video in their classroom. This class is designed for those teachers who want to engage their students in a dynamic new way by creating video content, teachers who want to learn more about what to do with their current video footage, and teachers who want to challenge themselves and their students to take their lessons to the next level.
As part of your tuition, a GoPro Hero5 will be included! We think it is important for you to have the tools you need in order to return to your classroom, fully ready to implement all you have learned in this course.
*Participants in the online version of this course will have several mandatory, synchronous, video conference sessions. The dates and times are listed on each course registration page.

The overall pacing of the course was good as well as the instructional manner in which material was presented. The time to "play" with apps and programs was very useful while the instructor was in the room to help with troubleshooting and answer questions.K.R., Science Teacher
This course was fantastic!!! I learned so much that I will be using in the future!J.T., Social Studies Teacher
It was very worthwhile. I learned a lot. Robin was available and responded when I had questions, almost immediately - definitely within hours.K.Z., Social Studies Teacher
I really enjoyed this class, very creative ways to teach.K.G., Science Teacher
I feel this course was very valuable to educators. Videos are a great way to enhance learning in the classroom, so the plethora of programs and activities we have learned about will definitely aid us.R.K.
I now have a GoPro camera that I can use to record and post videos on my school social media account.C.L.
I have already made and used a paper slide video, as well as Flipgrid. I love these tools.T.P., Math Teacher
I gained useful strategies and tools to use in my classroom to create meaningful videos.k.s.
All of the tools were easily applicable to my classroom.D.C., Language Arts Teacher
I really love using (and especially making) video in the classroom. This class pushed me to grow in my skills, taught me some new resources and especially challenged me to think about how I can get students making video in my classroom. Though I've enjoyed things about each, this has been my favorite eduspire course by far! Getting the GoPro was fantastic too!R.F.
With all the movements towards flipped and blended learning, this course was so helpful. I love that I am walking away with projects to use in the classroom and have a better understanding of video production.J.R.
I have been teaching for quite a long time. I feel that I am fairly up to date on technology use in the classroom. This course made me realize that there are many more valuable technology resources than those that I have been using. I also learned that I can use these resources in a variety of creative ways that I was not aware of prior to the course.A.E., Social Studies Teacher
I plan to use some video component in every lesson next year.T.B., Math Teacher
Even though I would say I am pretty tech savy, I learned about many video creation programs that I never knew about.K.G., Math Teacher
Exceptional, self-paced with instructor assistance whenever needed. PERFECT.B.G., Art Teacher
