This guide is intended to be helpful for faculty, instructional designers, and multimedia specialists that are in the early stages of creating a video for teaching purposes. The guide breaks down the many types of pedagogically-useful videos into several types and sub-types in order to help you think about the best approaches for discussing your content.
Several examples are provided throughout the guide and are primarily categorized by how difficult or expensive they are to create. Special attention was paid to provide examples for those new to creating video for a course, those with resources for crafting elaborate examples, and those that require the skill sets of a full production crew.
The guide was designed to take you through each step of discovering what kind of video best suits your purposes. It is recommended you select a video category, read about what attributes define that category, and then explore the sub-categories that further explores organizing content in this medium. The guide can be used as often as you like and will email you the results of your exploration as well as provide links and information on pursuing the creation of your video and next steps.
