Video Responses in Online Classes

Dr. Nancy Jurik discusses how she uses video responses in her online classes to keep students motivated. Every Friday morning, Dr. Jurik creates a webcam video to supplement her readings, narrated PowerPoint lectures, videos, websites, etc. Her goals are to bring herself to life for her students and grab their attention to keep them engaged in the course content. She looks at the Discussion Boards to determine what concepts resonate with the students and what topics need additional commentary and then crafts her weekly video responses. She then uploads the videos, grabs the embed code and pastes it into her course for the students to view.
