As a follow up to my earlier blog post about creating videos quickly, I thought I would share a few examples of the final product. When I started creating videos for an entire term online, I decided to add a bit more personalization. All of the videos started with me on the screen introducing the content before jumping into the annotated PowerPoint content. I created an animated logo in Adobe After Effects to add some flair and personalization. Finally, I put some bed music and end credits to make it seem a bit more like what they were used to from other YouTubers.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, many faculty have been asked to move their courses online with very short notice. Last year during the polar vortex I experimented with making lecture videos with PowerPoint. I have now updated the process again for the videos I am creating this year. The process is efficient and I think it meets ADA requirements for captions. The videos are not perfect but they convey the material clearly and are pretty good given the circumstances.
The final results of my dissertation research about affordable and portable laboratory kits were published in Advances in Engineering Education in 2019. The full paper can be accessed from the AEE website.
At WE19 I collaborated with Yanfen Li and Nicole Jackson to facilitate a flipped session on applying for academic jobs. The slides and additional details from the session are provided here for reference during and after the session.
