Welcome to the Open Online Course in Producing and Editing Video for Online Learning Environments or VideOOC.


How will it work?

The course will run for 6 weeks starting in the first week of September.

Each week we will hold a live event which may be a webinar, fm, Skype or Google Hangout.

Each weeks lesson will consist of essential content, required reading, an essential activity and optional extra activities.


Course Aims

The aim of the course is to assist you in learning to plan, shoot, edit and share video content.

By the end of the six weeks you will have produced a short training video describing/showcasing your area of expertise.

(We are also using this as a pilot course for the project so we will be learning from you by collecting data to help us improve this course and to help us make other courses in future.)
