Video Teaching can be used to increase flexibility in your course, or in feedback and assessment, or in student generated content and more.


Teaching through video can encompass meetings of people, the curation of video content, the creation of new video and the assessment of learning. Video teaching includes things like topical video playlists, video conference meetings, instructional screen recordings, field recordings, recorded lectures, interviews and panel discussions, studio recordings, learner presentations and more.

Video meetings or events can take place through services like Skype, Google Hangouts and Hangouts on Air (HoA), and a range of other services. Video playlists can be created through services like Youtube, or combinations of services like a list of links to a range of online video. Videos can be created with a screen recorder, webcam, camera phone or a range of specialist equipment and software.


Video Teaching can often help enhance understanding of a topic; give people at a distance some level of access to learning; offer flexibility in time and location for students and teachers alike; consolidate experience into a shared narrative; communicate ideas engagingly; offer opportunities for learning new communicative literacies.
