How to Video Tutorial Repository Lesson Plan

Each IT environment is unique with the applications that are used and how technology is integrated. There is a need for an educational video repository of how to video tutorials that are specific to the software used within the unique work environment.

I think your lesson plan will be a great resource for your work. It sounds like something that we could really use at Bay Mills Community College. Our IT is so busy that they just don’t have the time to come show us how to use certain technologies that are available to us, or we learn it once and forget it all. Having a video demo library would be excellent.

Technical Remarks:

The only thing that I would suggest would be to maybe have an area where instructors and administrators could comment on how useful the video was or add their own tips and tricks for future video viewers.

Ease of use: I was a little unclear with this lesson. Not entirely sure if the lesson is the creation of the tutorials, or watching the tutorials.

What you did well: I like the overall idea. Something like this would certainly come in handy in a variety of work places.

What you could add to make the resource more useful: Maybe could be a little clearer on who the lesson is for.

This is a great adaptation of flipped instruction to the work world.  The repository of tutorial videos is a great approach to the problem of providing training to new employees.  While face to face training is more personal, the videos allow uses to review them on their own time.  Often times new employees can experience information overload during orientation meetings, but with this repository, they can get the information when they need it.  It wasn’t specifically stated in your lesson plan, but I assume that you intend to add closed captioning to the videos so they fall more in line with UDL principles.  The lesson plan was easy to follow and well created.  Thanks for sharing.
