Capturing students on video and sharing them online


Presented at the TESOL 2016 Electronic Village, Baltimore, MD

After showing sample videos of students of varying English proficiencies performing different language tasks, I explained how to share them for educational purposes within a secure LMS and on YouTube and other open sites with privacy and other setting choices.

Equipment

Flip camera, smart phone, laptop or desktop camera, webcam, DSLR camera. Be sure to record landscape (horizontal), not portrait (vertical). Headset.

Recording operator options

Teacher records students. Students record each other in pairs and small groups. Students record themselves (or get friends outside of class).

Some considerations

Adults only, with consent, if public. No children. Lighting: students are ideally front-lit, not back-lit. Microphone placement: near students unless wired remotely. Voice projection: students should try to speak louder than ambient noise.

Sharing videos with students

Give/send file to individuals.
Upload to course LMS (Learning Management System).
Upload to Youtube or other video service.
Embed video in a blog.
Play video in class
Privacy settings:
Public, Unlisted, Private
