Simple Steps to Create a Video on Coggno’s LMS
San Jose, CA - Learning Management System (LMS) provider Coggno, Inc. now offers a feature-rich, easy-to-use video creation tool for educators and course developers. Its simple format allows video creation with just a few clicks, making it accessible for not only educators, but students as well.
The rapidly growing popularity of video-sharing websites like YouTube demonstrates the wide appeal of creating and sharing videos. Increasingly people of all ages are expressing their ideas, identities, and life perspectives online in an exceedingly multi-media fashion.
The creativity and self-expression facilitated by technology is compelling not only for students, but for educators as well. Willing, enthusiastic, imaginative students are simply easier to teach, and more enjoyable to work with. Web 2.0 classrooms are interactive, collaborative, and exciting.
Video creation tools and video sharing sites allow anyone to become producers of their own movies. And easy-to-use educational tools like Coggno’s LMS allow educators and course developers to easily create videos to share with students.
Studies find that when students are allowed to take a piece of knowledge and create something with it, their understanding of the topic is much more thorough than if they were to simply take in the material.
One up-and-coming video-sharing website is TeacherTube. Created in 2007 by a Texan superintendent, TeacherTube is one example of how Web 2.0 is making its way into the classroom. The site works as an aid for lesson plans and a place to post student projects. TeacherTube now has over 50,000 videos posted, and also features activities and competitions for schools such as classroom makeover contests.
Creating and incorporating videos via a learning management system can transform lessons, activities and even entire courses. LMSs like Coggno offer a user-friendly video tool for creating engaging instructional videos.
And other robust tools in Coggno’s LMS toolkit offer a check-and-balance system. Learning content featured in videos can be checked for understanding using other course tools like quiz and assessment tools.
Passive or lack of learning can be avoided by instructing students to take notes and answer questions about the video they are watching. Tests and quizzes created on the LMS can be featured at the end of a video to ensure that students grasp the material. For eLearning courses that do not meet face-to-face, checking up on students’ comprehension of (and attention to) the learning content in the videos is especially critical.
Using Coggno’s video creation tool, educators and students are able to create and upload videos to share their interpretation and creative expression of the learning material. Creating video learning content on an LMS intended only for internal use is a safe, simple and exciting solution for many schools and organizations.
