For teaching videos, the same rules apply as for texts. For an in-depth examination of the videos, it is useful to provide guiding tasks to the students.
The videos can be typical recorded lectures. Sometimes it is worth searching for open-source lecture videos with same subject as one’s seminar, in particular for introductory courses. A short overview is available here under existierende Lehrveranstaltungsaufzeichnungen anderer Hochschulen.
However, listening to recorded lectures for 90 min is often exhausting. Therefore, we recommend to subdivide the lecture into several videos.
If there are no recorded lectures available and own videos have to be created, the recorded units should be no longer than 20 minutes. The IMT offers single lecturers the possibility to record lectures in teaching rooms until April 20th 2020. If you are interested, contact the IMT (imt(at)upb(dot)de).
The Hochschule Niederrhein published the following handouts about this topic. We particularly recommend the handout about legal aspects of lecture recordings.
How can videos be produced with simple tools?
Using cellphone cameras:
If you don’t want to show presentation slides (more information below), you can simply do a recording with your cellphone. This is particularly adequate for welcome sessions, before you start the audio-visual presentation.Auch Digitalkameras bieten die Möglichkeit, Videos zu erstellen, häufig liefern aktuelle Smartphones qualitativ hochwertigere Videos ab.
Using digital camera:
Digital cameras also present the opportunity to create videos. However, current smartphones usually allow better results in terms of quality.
Laptops, cell phones and cameras have integrated microphones. Nevertheless, the sound quality should be tested. For better sound quality, external microphones are preferable (if available). The sound quality should be tested before a long recording.
Tools for video production are available on our tool webseite.
Studio and recording possibilites at the IMT
The IMT offers a large number of recording possibilities. You can “pre-produce” short video modules of relevant courses in lecture halls. These videos can be integrated into courses via PANDA. Due to limited production capacities, prioritizing will apply. Lecturers can send their request to the IMT ticket system (imt(at)upb(dot)de).
