Looking to Make Video Lessons For Class This Year? Check out Loom. Here’s a Tutorial from Flipped Classroom Tutorials to Help Get You Started

I’ve used the flipped classroom model in my intro broadcast class for the last few years and it was a big help when our school moved to virtual learning last spring.

I actually plan to use a lot more of the flipped approach this coming year. I’ll be recording lessons of 5-15 minutes and sharing them with my students and staffs weekly.

The program I’ve been using this summer the most and liking is Loom. It allows me to record my screen to show what I’m talking about and even allows me to be a little talking head in the corner of the video so my students can see that I’m actually there. 🙂

This nice tutorial walks you through how the program works and how to get started with it. If you’d like to learn more about the program and how one adviser uses it, check out this great post Jim Streisel did a few months ago.

Advisers, this is great to use for lessons you are making and editors, this is a great tool for you all to learn and use as well as you’re training and helping your staffs.
