Tips and Tricks


  • What is your why? Establish your purpose for creating videos.
  • Limit your videos to under 5 minutes.
  • Include your webcam image in one of the corners of the screen.
  • If you are using YouTube, be sure to fill out a Websense request in order for your students to see your video.
  • Test your video on multiple devices if possible.
  • Get comfortable with one tool. Don't feel like you need to be the expert on them all. Teaching is overwhelming enough as it is.
  • Make sure your videos are accessible. Students have various abilities and your videos need to have captioning.
