Video Presentation Assignment Instructions


The purpose of the Video Presentation Assignment is for candidates to articulate a philosophical perspective on a chosen topic related to the field of education. The candidate will create a video presentation conveying the significance and impact of the topic. They will present various viewpoints and will include an analysis from their own personal philosophical perspective. The video will be 3 to 5 minutes in length. It will display the face of the candidate and at least one type of visual. The visual may be digital, such as a PowerPoint or Adobe Spark Page, or it may be a physical image/object shown in the camera view. As candidates research to prepare for the presentation, they demonstrate knowledge of educational ideas of the past, consider the relevance of a chosen topic, and critically analyze the topic in light of their own educational beliefs.


Prepare the Content and Image(s)

Select a Topic: You may select a topic which you have already written about or plan to write about in this current course. It may be a topic that interests you from one of the assignments listed below:
If you do not wish to select one of the above topics, you may choose a different one. It is acceptable, however, to repeat a topic you have already addressed in another assignment. Your chosen topic must align with the content of the course and the Measurable Learning Outcomes in the course syllabus.

Consider the Audience and Purpose: Prepare as if you were planning a video for a particular audience. Below are examples, but you may be as creative as you would like:
Plan Key Points: Decide on key points that you will make in your 3 to 5-minute video. Do not plan on reading what you may have already written. You may, however, create an outline or notes to follow. Your key points should be clear to your audience and accomplish your purpose for the video.
Finalize Content & Image(s): Consider how you will package the content and the logical flow of progression you will use to make your point. What image(s) will you use? Will the image(s) be digital, such as a PowerPoint slide or an Adobe Spark Page, or will you use a physical image that you hold or show alongside you in the video view? Citations and references are optional for this assignment; they are not required.
Record the Online Video

Select a Recording Platform: Record a 3 to 5-minute online video. You will be submitting only a URL web link, so do not plan on uploading to Canvas a large video file from your computer. Video files require a large amount of storage space and can be cumbersome to upload. As you record, make your face and at least one image visible to the viewer. If you are unfamiliar with making online videos, you are encouraged to try Loom; it is commonly used by educators, free of charge, easy to use, and secure. The video you create may be accessible only to those to whom you provide the link. If you are already familiar with YouTube, Screencast-O-Matic, or another online video creation program, you may use those instead of Loom as long as they store the video online and provide you a link to share the video.
Record the Presentation: You may use notes but maintain eye contact with the camera as you would an audience. Your face must be visible as you speak, and you are to display at least one image of some sort. Your image may be a PowerPoint recorded as a screen-capture if you choose, but ensure that your face is also visible on the screen along with the screen-capture.
Test and Submit the URL Web Link

Test the Link: Once the video is recorded, test the link yourself or have someone else test it before submitting. A common error is that the link does not work so that others can see the presentation. Candidates often mistakenly share the link to their Loom account rather than providing the share link to the video itself. Another common error is that the candidate submits the wrong web address altogether. The best way to test is to send the link to someone else to ensure they can access the video.
Submit the Link: There is no writing required for this assignment, simply submit the URL web link to your online video.
