Learn how to create education videos for students through vodcasting, a cheap and easy way to flip classes.

education-videoIt’s one thing to tell educators to make videos of their lessons. It’s another thing to know where to start. But thanks to the advice of a veteran tech-savvy teacher and administrator, “vodcasting” can help educators create education videos for students without hassle and for little-to-no cost.

In a recent edweb.net webinar, “Motivating Students to Communicate through Vodcasting,” veteran educator Shannon Holden discussed how he has created video and taught interested educators how to create one of the key components to flipped learning.

Flipped learning, or delivering instruction outside the classroom using video, has been a growing trend in districts over the past year. Proponents say flipped learning frees class time, allowing students to engage in hands-on learning, collaborate with their peers, and evaluate their progress. Teachers can provide one-on-one assistance, guidance, and inspiration.

“Interested in flipped learning? Then vodcasting is definitely something you should try,” Holden said. “It’s an easy way to record a lesson and it can be posted, embedded, and shared with every student.”
