If you wish to activate your students, study activities involving student produced videos is a great possibility. When students produce videos on their own, it is possible for you as an educator to gain insight in the students´ understanding of difficult concepts, working methods, and their individual learning process.
By listening to the students´ phrasings you can identify whether key concepts and the professional language is used correctly, and it provides the opportunity to monitor the students´ educational progress closely. It is equally possible for the students to monitor their own progress, and student produced videos can help to identify problematic areas in the curriculum and provide the base for discussions in plenum.
Panopto for student produced videos
Aalborg University has their very own platform to record, edit and share videos. The platform is called Panopto and it is very similar to YouTube. The advantage is that Panopto is in line with the GDPR-rules, so any videos uploaded by the students are kept securely. Panopto is compatible with Moodle, and this gives the educator the opportunity to ask the students to upload their videos directly in Moodle.
