Here are a few examples of how video as a comment can be used to expand and enrich the conversation:
The ability to record a video instead of writing an insight, comment or feedback can be a great time-saver for some people.
Instead of typing your thoughts, you can just say what you have in mind. This can save you some precious time.
Provide extended feedback
If one picture is worth 1000 words, imagine the worth of a video recording!
A video feedback combines not only the content of the feedback, but a lot of additional added value: the tone of what is said, body language, hand gestures - all of these create a much more comprehensive way of expression.
Create "How to" videos
Recording the screen opens a world of possibilities in the ability to show how to do something, instead of explaining it.
This can be used to demonstrate how a program works, to show how to find something in your device, to demo how to change settings, to focus the viewers on a specific location in your screen, etc.
Record\ ask for introduction videos
Video as a comment can be used to strengthen the introduction between all video viewers - Learners & Instructors. Anyone can add a self-recorded video, answering a specific question (such as: "why did you choose to take this class?"), or telling about themselves.
Can be used, for example, at the beginning of the semester, where the instructor and the learners introduce themselves in a video – can be a great ice-breaker! 😊
When teaching languages, pronouncing has a huge meaning. Video as a comment can be easily used to demonstrate how to pronounce a specific word, phrase or even a letter.
The instructor can record the correct way to pronounce and\or ask the learners to record themselves doing so.
Feedback on a created video
When a video is created, feedback can be given in several ways.
Adding time-base written comments is one of these ways. By recording your screen as a comment, you can also show exactly what you are referring (in terms of a specific part of the video, as well as a specific location on the screen).
Sometimes the easiest way to help a student understand is to give them a real, visual example of what you’re talking about.
