Up-Coming Webinars On Using Video in Your Teaching

Over the past two weeks I have shared a couple of messages related to way of using video in your face-to-face and online courses.  First it was an item focused on different resources for creating instructional videos, specifically using the Kaltura video recorder and editor that is embedded into Canvas.  Second it was a report from Kaltura that provided a guide to the state of video in education.

Below I wanted to pass along notices of two up-coming webinars focused on this theme.  The first is from Kaltura and is actually focused on the report that I shared last week.  The second is from MediaSite, which  thought might be of interest given its use at both TUC and TUN.

As always, if you have any questions about using video or Kaltura in any of your Canvas courses, please contact Jim O’Connor or myself.

Subject: Webinar: Highlights of the State of Video in Education Report

Webinar: How Educational Institutions Are Using Video – Insights from the 2019 Report
Video is everywhere in education—not only changing the way we teach and learn, but how we communicate, collaborate, build communities, and extend our reach. As today’s digital natives increasingly expect video in every aspect of their lives, educational institutions are rising to meet the demand, using video in ever more effective and creative ways. 

Kaltura released its sixth annual report on the State of Video in Education July 9. The report is based on responses from over 1,400 participants and is the most comprehensive report on the subject to-date; it covers video usage, perception, and trends in education around the world. In this webinar, get a closer look at the report’s highlights and the lessons that can be drawn. With a substantial Q&A session at the end, you’ll have a chance to get all your questions answered.

Your Guide to the State of Video in Education

Last week I sent out a message focused on specific “resources for creating instructional videos,”  earlier today I received this message in my inbox.  Some of the items I found interesting in the report mentioned below related to students include:

  • Students increasingly expect video to be part of their educational experience.  82% see students’ expectations for how much video should be part of their learning experience as increasing.
  • Video will be a major tool in increasingly personalized learning experiences.  98% of respondents see video as having a part to play in personalized learning experiences.  98% think that interactive videos will be important to education, and anticipate self-paced curriculums.  9% of campuses are already tying video analytics deeply to student behavior and results to predict and bolster student achievement.
  • Educational institutions see a high ROI for video. 91% believe video increases student satisfaction. 82% see it increasing student achievements, and 80% thinks it increases educator collaboration and professional development (80%).
  • Interestingly, the farther along in the educational process an institution is, the more likely they are to see student demand for video increasing.  …while 87% of graduate schools report increasing expectations.
  • 11% of institutions report that more than half their students are actively using video (rather than merely watching it passively).
  • The highest rate of positive feelings, by far, is the ability of video to increase the satisfaction of students with their learning experience, as 91% believed video had a positive impact in this area.

Those interesting items related to faculty include:

  • 80% of faculty… have at least some ability to use simple workflows to publish their work.
  • In terms of support, 84% of faculty get at least a little training…  79% of educators… have at least some access to staff who can help them video production.
  • The most frequently cited [hurdles to creating videos] were: time, money, lack of staff, lack of administrative support, need for easier-to-use tools, lack of awareness of the resources available and the value of video, and rouble making videos accessible.
  • More than half of respondents (52%) report that their institutions are currently recording only up to a quarter of the classes on campus. Only 11% are recording more than half the classes on campus.
  • 38% would like to record more than half the classes on campus, and 18% would like to record more than three quarters.
  • 25% felt lecture capture originated with administrative demand, while 21% saw student demand as a driver.

I have attached a copy of the report below to this message (to save you time from having to download it).

Resources for Creating Instructional Videos

Last week the TUC Provost e-mailed me a copy of an article entitled “Raising the Bar for Academic Video.”  What I found most interesting about this article was that it described the process that one should take when working with an instructional designer to create an instructional video.  However, I would argue that faculty should undertake this process whenever they are creating any instructional video – regardless if it is a five minute screencasting video or a full production video in the green room.  Any time you are creating an instructional video, be sure to think about what you want to achieve with the video; decide if there are ways to cut the topic into multiple, shorter videos; have an outline prepared before you start recording; carefully consider the visuals (e.g., slides, the screen, whether you’ll have a video of yourself included in the video, etc.); don’t just record the video, but be sure to do some editing too; and make sure to upload it into Kaltura instead of as a file in Canvas.

I actually received the article the day before I noticed that Valencia College Faculty and Instructional Development had posted this series of videos:

  • Kaltura Capture Overview – a video that outlines how to access Kaltura inside of Canvas in order to create instructional videos, how to download the new Kaltura Capture client, how to create a screencast using Kaltura Capture, and how to upload a video to Kaltura inside of Canvas
    • note that I created an instructional video that just shows just how to upload an existing video to Kaltura inside of Canvas at https://youtu.be/PJfV_viRZk4
  • Requesting Captions in Kaltura – a video that outlines how to request any video uploaded toKaltura inside of Canvas is closed captioned
  • Editing Captions in Kaltura – a video that outlines how to edit the closed captioning that you receive from Kaltura inside of Canvas

Now one of the good things about Kaltura is that videos that uploaded to Kaltura inside of Canvas do not count against the Canvas file size quota. Another nice thing is that if you do take the time to request the captions from Kaltura, the company claims that their captioning meets the requirements of both Section 504 of Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA).

By the way, I should have stated up front that Valencia College Faculty and Instructional Development has some great Canvas instructional videos in general.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me.
