14 Tools and Resources to Get Students to Create Instructional Videos

“Animation offers a medium of storytelling and visual entertainment which can bring pleasure and information to people of all ages everywhere in the world.” – Walt Disney

Research indicates that one of the most effective ways students learn is by teaching others. In my new book, Hacking Digital Learning Strategies: 10 Ways to Launch EdTech Missions in Your Classroom, students are sent on a mission to instruct others by creating their own video tutorials. Other ways students can teach others is by creating explainer videos (sometimes called One Take Videos), Do It Yourself (DIY) videos, or How-To Videos. These videos help students visualize and explain in their own words their understanding of the topic. Additionally, these videos save you time if you are flipping instruction and need a library of instructional videos. No need for you to create the videos. Your students will have a much valuable learning experience if they create their own. Future students can learn with these videos and create others to demonstrate the same concepts. Below are some tips, web tools, and resources to get your students started.
