ABOUT OTAN TRAINING: Workshop Descriptions

Workshop title Creating Videos for Instruction (aka "Blenderizing Instruction") 
Workshop description

Name an educational topic that does not have a video on the Internet associated with it. From writing a paragraph to mathematical functions to citizenship test, videos blend and create an instructional connection with students both in and outside of the classroom. And what better way to present instructional content specific to your content, than with videos you create - for free!

This workshop will discuss and show free online apps to create videos for the adult education classroom as well as different ways to share or make those videos viewable to students. Let's "Blenderize!"
