611 BYOD: Improving Outcomes with Video Graphics

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Thursday, April 21

Tracks: Development & Tools

Series: BYOD

Many learning professionals think that engaging video requires a considerable investment in studio equipment and highly trained personnel. Creating high-quality video is elusive for those who make learning content, as their video quality lags behind the professionalism of other content. The fact is the “magic” of video happens in post-production. Video editing is not a talent but a skill that anybody can learn. But for the beginner, the sheer volume and complexity can be overwhelming.

In this workshop you’ll learn how to create video graphics, focusing on the types of images used in digital learning. Using low-cost, readily available, off-the-shelf graphics software, participants will learn how to create video graphics that help people learn new skills and retain information. You’ll edit graphics on your laptop with templates provided by the facilitator. You’ll follow along, step-by-step, as you create graphics such as “over the shoulders” and “lower thirds” and learn a professional workflow made just for digital learning pros. The facilitator will explain how to use each graphic to enhance educational outcomes and what graphics work best with information and skill content. Then, you’ll work with the facilitator step-by-step to create eye-popping video graphics that engage learners. In the final part of this session, you’ll learn to integrate these graphics into video productions with standard editing software.  

In this session you will learn:

  • How to create graphics
  • How to edits graphics
  • A workflow for digital learning professionals
  • How to integrate graphics
