Follow our 6 point checklist to design powerful visual content that meets the demands of modern learners:
Have you decided if your video should evoke emotions, provide instructions, give context or depict WIIFM?
Does the video have a clear message? Do you want it to illicit a different POV?
Will learners view the video in class with discussion from a facilitator or are they viewing it on their own?
Is the video duration suitable? In class, play the section that best fits. In a self-paced program, set the video to stream only certain portions. (Don’t know how to go about it? Email me and i’ll share how!)
Do you have permission from the video owner? Are you streaming the video versus downloading it in respect of their permissions?
Have you checked that the Closed Captioning (automatically built in to YouTube videos) is accurate?
