Developing instructional videos

Instructional video has a long history in education but a major advantage of the digital format is that learners have far more access and control depending on level and need. This format can also help in mastery learning for complex procedures and concepts.

High-end digital cameras are needed when video quality is important such as filming detailed clinical procedures as shown in the following case studies:

The Duke University MOOC, ‘Introduction to Chemistry’ details the production process and requirements for recording laboratory experiment.

The School of Veterinary Science at UQ found the need to create detailed instructional videos and purchased a high-end digital camera to film anatomical procedures which were published to DVD for students to view at their own pace. This production was resource intensive involving hours of filming, set-up and DVD authoring in order to support a particular learning need. See the UQ Flipped Classroom Case studies- Paul Mills for more details.
