Multi-media Videos on Your iPad!
resources for using iPads to create videos
Project Innovate iPads are an efficient way to capture, edit, and upload short instructional videos. There are a number of easy-to-use tools to create professional videos and image slideshows. The apps we will explore today are:
Tips for Quality Videos
1. Make sure to turn your iPad in the horizontal/landscape orientation when recording video.
2. Try to speak clearly close to the iPad microphone.
3. When possible, record video in a space with little or no background noise.
4. Keep instructional videos to 5 minutes. This is easier to upload and share, and students focus better on shorter chunks of one-way instruction.
So, You've Made a Video. Now, How Do You Share it?
STEPS FOR SHARING:
- If you do not already have the YouTube app installed on your iPad, you should do so now. Click here to go to YouTube app download.
- After YouTube installs, go to your video project and tap the SHARE SQUARE (that icon that looks like a box with an arrow coming straight out of the top.)
- Choose the red YouTube icon and then give the upload a title and description. Consider including the objective or topic in the title. It will make sorting easier later when you start uploading more videos.
- It may take a minute or two to upload into YouTube depending on your wi-fi connection.
- Once it is uploaded, you can simply copy the URL and paste it on your web-page or anywhere that you can share it with your students. Teachers who use REMIND, can paste a video link for students in REMIND messages. Homework help? Test reviews? Flipped lessons?
- Take photos of student work and use iMovie to edit them into a simple video that can be shared.
- Take short instructional videos for your students for flipped learning.
- Use a Justand (stand for recording downward) to record videos of yourself working problems and taking notes.
- Take photos of each student project and make a Flipagram of an entire class period. Then, all class periods can view the student projects.
- Also, Flipagrams are much more portable to take home for grading than large poster or paper projects.
- Use photos and short text to create visually appealing short presentations.
- Take photos of different models with directions for students.
- Templates make creation quick and professional looking.
- This simple video editing tool is easy enough for a first time video-editor.
