Adaptation: Taking Your Lecture from the Classroom to the Camera

While a camera in the back of a classroom is one way to produce educational video it is far from the most effective. In this ViTaL session we will take a lecture that was previously only taught in the classroom and walk through the steps to transform it into a format more suitable for online learning. From modulating content, to script-writing, to graphic design, this pre-production process will walk through everything you should consider before pressing record.
