Create a video on a topic chosen on a first-come, first-served basis
My favorite activity was the create a video project. You can work with a
partner and it's fun to make and really
helps you learn about your topic teaching it to other people.
Purpose and Assignment
Practice communication skills and review and solidify a concept from class
as you create a short real-time video aimed at your classmates.
Here, real-time communication includes real-time handwriting on a board or paper, or real-time manipulations on a computer or board,
and real-time audio and video of your face.
Your face, voice, and other communication must be present in the video all at the same time, at all times, although
you may begin with some text already there. I've had some people ask if they can substitute their face with a real-time animated representative, like a moving puppet, and yes that would be ok too.
Start by introducing yourself and listing the topic you chose (first-come-first served on ASULearn).
The rest is up to you but you should
a) reviewing related concepts from class and homework, and
b) one specific example (preferably one we did so that the notation and methods are correct and consistent with the way we talked about it in class).
Explain and discuss the related concepts and example in your
own words, although the example itself may be one we covered. You may work with one other person and turn in one video only if both of you are in it and you subdivide the communication equally.
Creativity is encouraged, but keep it professional. Explaining concepts to others is one of the best ways to learn yourself!
Pretend you are presenting to the class in real time, but these can be more polished since you can plan,
re-record and make revisions as needed.
Here is a 5-minute sample video on a computer from 1120.
Here is a 3-minute sample video with a white board from
an 1120 class at a different school (but they didn't introduce themselves, and they didn't list or review the topic).
Aim to keep your video to 5 minutes or less if possible.
Recording from a phone, computer, or tablet is the method I would expect many to use.
I can also help you film during office hours--for example we could set up my laptop to record you.
Another option is the library tech desk,
which allows you to check out digital equipment, including camcorders. The library also has private
study rooms with whiteboards that you can book and record in.
If you want to borrow a marker for a whiteboard, I can lend that to you.
Taping up paper and writing on that with a marker is another option.
Youtube or Google Drive
You can upload your video to your school YouTube channel as follows:
First be sure that you are logged in to your school Gmail account.
Then upload your video.
Change the privacy setting to Unlisted and copy the web address for the video.
Then send me the video link in the private forum on ASULearn.
I'll respond there if I recommend any changes. When it is ready I'll approve your video and will add it to a page on ASULearn
designed to add to the class resources and build community.
If you are uploading from a phone, you might need to first select YouTube, and then log in to your
Another option is for you to upload to your Google Drive account. Then, be sure to "Get shearable link" that Anyone with the link at ASU can view.
Regardless of where you store it, message the link to me on the private forum.
Rubric and Revisions
The full-credit video is scored on a scale of 2
starts by introducing yourself and listing the topic you chose
focuses on one specific example. I encourage you to select an example from class/homework that you have solutions for
the notation and methods are correct and consistent with the way we talked about it in class
reviews related concepts from our class/homework
is in your own words
speech and writing is clear and correct
real-time handwriting or manipulations, and at the same time, real-time audio and video of you making eye contact. Your face (or your representative's face), voice, and other
communication must be present in the video all at the same time, at all times, although you may begin with some text already there.
please try to keep your video to approximately 5 minutes or less. It is ok if it is longer, but shorter and to the point is better.
(if working with a partner) both of you are in it and you subdivide
the communication equally
A score of 1 is given for a good faith effort
that is not quite ready for prime time.
You can revise your video by reading day, using my feedback to improve it.
The choice of topic is first-come, first-served on the ASULearn Choice Survey, and you may
work alone or with one other person.
