Can you see it?

Images are a valuable opportunity to improve learning, as well as create a more aesthetically pleasing course design that improves motivation in learners (David & Glore, 2010).

Can you hear it?

Voice and video enriches online learning with nuances and emotional cues that are not present in text. This can reduce hurt feelings and improve social presence (Ice, Curtis, Phillips, & Wells, 2007; Borup, West, & Graham, 2012).

MoveNote

MoveNote is an easy to use video recording tool. It creates a video with a live capture from your webcam and any PDF you upload from your computer, Google Drive, DropBox, or Box. MoveNote has a free mobile app that can be used to record video from your smartphone along with pictures selected from your phone's Library. It's easy enough to have your students use it to create online presentations!

  • Videos hosted on MoveNote are visible to those who have  the link.
  • Videos may be download as an .mp4 file and uploaded to YouTube (like the one shown to the right).

Canva

Canva is an online graphic design tool that gets you started with free, editable templates. Once you design an image on Canvas, you may download it and/or send a link to others that give them access to view, download, or edit the image.

  • To create a course banner, start with a custom canvas size of 600x150; for a video thumbnail for YouTube use a canvas size of 1280x720.

Just for you!

Google

There's so much you can do with a Google account, it's tough to summarize everything here. A few of my favorite features are recording and captioning videos in YouTube and creating forms (online surveys) in Google Drive that can help you get to know your students or act as a formative assessment for a YouTube video.
