I think students need to make more noise about how bad many video lectures (recorded lectures) are. Also, slides. If slides are good, is it worth skipping the video? If the video is bad, do the slides compensate? #education #onlineLearning #instructionalDesign Anyone who's taken an online course is likely to know why I'm bringing this up — unless you were very, very lucky. We see so many online degrees nowadays. When the courses are asynchronous, that means there will be video lectures.

Here's a sympathetic note to all teachers who are trying to teach via video for the first time:
1. You'll improve each time you do it.
2. It might help more students if you record the video and upload it to YouTube.
3. After you've put videos on YouTube, you can make a playlist ... and share a link to the playlist.
4. If you have earbuds that came with your phone, there is a microphone there. If you are *able* to connect that mic to your laptop, it will improve the sound quality of your video 10x.
