A one-shot video from a mobile device is a simple way for you to produce a short (10 minutes or less) single-topic video using your own available video capture technology (e.g., camera, mobile phone, iPad, tablet). You hit Record, speak in front of the camera, and press Stop. There is no editing. Upload the video to YouTube or another video sharing site. Done! A mobile video is dynamic, engaging, lets your students see you, and appeals to the current video culture.
|You probably already have a smartphone, iPad, tablet, or camera||No need to learn something new or borrow equipment.|
|Quick to record||It doesn’t have to be perfect.|
|Able to record demonstrations in the field||You can take your device almost anywhere. Want to show a demonstration out in the field? Just head out and record.|
Record from your own mobile device when you want to record:
Check with your device manufacturer for instructions on how to record from your specific device.
Audio: If recording outside, keep in mind that sound quality will suffer. You may want to use a separate microphone, headphone, AirPods, or other device to help with sound.
Video: hold your device stead. If you have access to a tripod, even better. Even small movements can cause motion sickness in some folks. Don’t swing the camera around quickly when panning. Use slow, steady movements
If you have questions about using your device for creating one-shot videos, contact the OIT HelpDesk to schedule a consultation.
