Producing Effective
Educational Media

March 25–May 4, 2020

Educators are finding greater need to provide both audio and video media to their students, most of whom consume more and more content through online channels. With classrooms slowly adopting a “flipped” model (online lectures and collaborative work in school), the ability for educators to produce effective media will continue to play a larger role in the overall education process. This course illuminates how to record, edit, master, format and upload quality audio and video programs for your students. Class projects include publishing audio recordings, podcasts and videos, and setting up "channels" for both audio and video sharing.
