Making Videos

Course Overview, Teaching Methods, Learning Activities, Communication

Lesson 1 Module 1

Welcome- We're glad you're here!

In this module we will introduce the course and ourselves, and give everyone the opportunity to say hello and tell us a little about themselves. We'll explain what we will be learning in the course, our teaching methods, and the learning activities and resources we will use. We'll also make our first video of the course!

Please have your smartphone or the camera you plan to use to record your videos, with a charged battery and enough room on your memory to save your video.  See you on Zoom!
