Use video in my teaching

Video can be a powerful tool to engage students and enhance learning in the classroom.  Faculty can integrate video from their own research into lectures or place video in online course materials for students to explore, comment on, or use as a basis for a student research project.  Online collections of video at Wooster or at public sites such as YouTube or Google Video can be researched and critiqued by students as part of their coursework or students can create their own video as part of a student research project for inclusion in presentations and other class materials.


Use pre-existing video – Librarians can help you find sources for video to use in your course, including video databases licensed by the College.   See the Library’s media guide or contact a Librarian in your subject area.

Digitize existing video – Computers in Taylor 205, CoRE, and Digital Studio can be used by faculty and teaching staff to digitize materials.

Use video in lectures and course materials – Video can be used in presentations or placed in Moodle to enhance student understanding of concepts.

Encourage students to research video – Students can explore web sites or use tools such as Google Video or YouTube, in combination with Wooster’s electronic resources, to enhance their understanding of subject matter.

Have students create videos for assignments – The Office of Information Technology has loaner equipment that can be used to create original videos for assignments; students can integrate original videos into class presentations or their course research projects.
