In this course, you will be introduced to the best practices for the design and production of video-recorded lectures. In higher education today, an increasing number of courses are being offered in flipped, hybrid, and asynchronous online formats. Lecturing remains an efficient means of delivering course content, but opportunities for face-to-face lectures are becoming increasingly limited. Many instructors now prefer to devote precious class-time to interactive lessons. Producing video-recorded lectures provides instructors with the opportunity to efficiently deliver content to students outside of the traditional classroom setting. This being said, many instructors have little or no experience producing video-recorded lectures. Producing a video-recorded lecture is not the same as lecturing to a live audience. It is important to provide educators with guidance on how to produce video-recorded lectures. This is the aim of this course.
