Tools and Tips for creating your e-learning resource

Here are some useful examples of tools and tips for creating your e-learning resource. Please don’t feel you have to watch every video or click every link.

Tips on video

Sound: Positioning the microphone is difficult when using a mobile as it is fixed to the camera. If possible use a separate microphone. One cheap option is to use the microphone built into headphones. Here are some useful videos that show some ways to record sound using a mobile phone.

Shooting video: Making sure your video looks good is also important. Here are some links to advice on achieving a good recording.

Sharing video on YouTube

  • Create a channel: Creating a YouTube channel allows you to upload videos and edit the content within it. It is possible to control who sees your content by sharing privately with a discreet group of learners or opening it to everyone

  • Subtitle or caption your video: It is also possible to subtitle your video to allow a wider audience to access your content for example in an alternate language or to give access to deaf or hard of hearing viewers.

  • View moderate, interact and organise comments: Every video and channel in YouTube has a comments feed associated with it, much like you will have seen here in the FutureLearn platform. When you have created your own channel you will be able to moderate, interact and organise the comments on your videos. This can be used as a forum or discussion relating to the subject matter in your video.

  • Collaborate: One of the ways you can collaborate with learners on youtube is to collaborate on playlists. This allows a learner centred approach by enabling learners sharing content and link it to yours.

Authoring tools

PowerPoint:

Capable of creating animation, video and allowing functioning Excel Worksheets for calculations. You can also record narration to accompany your slides.
