Video Lesson Creation

Newer technologies make it easy for anyone to create a short web presentation using a combination of audio, video and screen capture. Poorvu staff can help you decide whether this is an appropriate solution for your teaching and learning goals, and introduce you to the available technologies for developing these materials on your own.


Examples of where this technology is of value include:

  • Short video “screen captures” that illustrate a solution to a science or math problem
  • A slideshow with voice-over that takes the viewer through a presentation or lesson
  • A single-person video that provides an audiovisual introduction to a topic.
