Monday Morning Mentor: How Can I Make My Video Lectures Effective and Engaging?

The impersonal, text-heavy nature of many online classrooms makes it challenging for instructors to engage students with course material in an interesting, meaningful way. Video lectures provide an effective way for online instructors to teach content, personalize the learning experience, and evoke social conventions that promote students’ engagement with course material. But, for students to benefit from a video lecture, they must be willing to watch it.

This 20-Minute Mentor provides guidance for designing and delivering engaging video lectures that are effective in the unique context of the online classroom. You’ll receive the guidance and direction necessary to create video lectures that are intentionally designed to capitalize on the ways that students learn online.

Learning Goals

  • Design a video lecture that is uniquely suited to the online classroom
