Online Teaching Using Camtasia®

Whether you teach in a flipped classroom or an online classroom, you will probably need to create a video or a screencast at some point. I have been teaching at University of Phoenix Online for 16 years, and before that I taught at the Electronic High School in Utah. Perhaps one of the most difficult subjects to teach online is mathematics, but all subjects could benefit from lectures or lessons on video. I recommend using Camtasia® from TechSmith company -- it is a powerful product to create videos and GIFS to illustrate your lessons.

Quality Teaching Methods

Just because you are teaching online using videos or screencasts does not mean you no longer need to adhere to proven teaching methods such as chunking, interactivity, schema learning, correlation, differentiation, articulation, metacognition, and Bloom's Taxonomy. It is also important to create a lesson plan for each video or screencast -- before beginning to record, review that lesson plan for appropriate learning objectives, effective teaching practices, and quality assessment.
