Event Overview

In this short session you will be introduced to a duo of short online courses, designed and facilitated by the Online Course Production service.
In summer 2021, we launched “How to Create an Online Course” and in summer 2022, we are launching its companion course “How to Create Videos for Online Courses”, both on Future Learn.
For this Digital Skills Festival session, we will introduce you to our latest offering “How to Create Videos for Online Courses” and empower you to create engaging videos to film on your own using tools you likely have to hand (i.e. a smartphone and/or tablet). You will hear from team members behind both short online courses and watch a demo on how you can turn your smartphone into a high-quality filming device for educational purposes.
The schedule comprises:
  • 10 minute Presentation
  • 15 minute Demo on How to Film on a Smartphone
  • 10 minute Q&A
