ATE grantees have long embraced a wide variety of delivery methods for both instruction and training. Beyond traditional classroom activities, faculty have developed podcast series, designed interactive games, utilized virtual reality simulations, and even built custom lab environments. Not surprisingly though, the creation of home-grown video content remains one of the more popular delivery methods, with affordable digital video cameras and smartphones enabling grantees to quickly produce and disseminate their own content.
In this From the Archive blog post, we first highlight a four-part video series that walks viewers through pre-production, production, post-production, and the dissemination phrases of creating engaging video content. Next, we offer up a printable tip sheet on making your video content more accessible to users with disabilities. This tip sheet also provides links to additional resources on captioning and audio description.
