Tips for making a video to share:
- Be aware of your background. I had a paper hanging in the background with a bunch of phone numbers and birthdays that I covered up before making the video.
- Move yourself or the camera make the most of your lighting. If your audience can't see you it won't work as well.
- Keep it brief.
- Don't be afraid of YouTube. Check out Google for Education Training Center for tips on using YouTube.
- Don't aim for perfection. Your goal isn't to earn an Oscar. Your goal is creating a video that will enhance your communication with parents, teachers, or students.
