Playlists: Multimedia Production Part 4

Create a Video Playlist

You may be uploading and creating your own video playlist, or collating a playlist of useful resources to suit a particular topic. Here are some resources to consider using. Please post in the comments section any other resources that are available.

  • Viewer playlists – organise your favourite videos and share. No creation of videos is required, you are just grouping together useful resources to share.
  • Creator playlists – if you create videos it provides a way to organise videos into topics and for viewers to find them.
  • Organised into subject content, theme or whatever you choose.
  • Videos are organised in a legal format for yourself and others to view.
  • Can embed into a website or resource.
  • Can provide analytics.

Example: Nursing Education Network Playlist

Why To Make a YouTube Playlist

Some Persuasive Data from YouTube Statistics:

  • YouTube has over a billion users — almost one-third of all people on the Internet — and every day people watch hundreds of millions of hours on YouTube and generate billions of views.
  • YouTube overall, and even YouTube on mobile alone, reaches more 18-34 and 18-49 year-olds than any cable network in the U.S.
  • Growth in watch time on YouTube has accelerated and is up at least 50% year over year for three straight years.

Recording: Multimedia Production Part 3

Use you mobile phone, laptop or tablet for quality video recordings. Just check your device to see what video recording and editing software you already have. There are lots of options available for editing but as a beginner using your devices editing software or using YouTube may be the easier and less frustrating approach until you build up your recording skills.

Some considerations:

  • Lighting
  • Stability (use two hands or a selfie stick)
  • Audio and background noise
  • Point of view: where is the camera focused on
  • Framing: orientation of the camera
  • Clean your lens

Inclusivity

Don’t forget to add captions and subtitles [more info here].

Storyboard: Multimedia Production Part 2

Storyboarding

 “A storyboard is a graphic organizer in the form of illustrations or images displayed in sequence for the purpose of pre-visualizing a motion picture, animation, motion graphic or interactive media sequence” (Wikipedia, 2019).

Example of a Storyboard

Editing Resources

IT skills and budget are likely key factors in finding suitable editing resources. Here are a few, but a quick internet search will show many available resources. 

Inclusivity 

Don’t forget to review accessibility during the creation of resources for neurodiversity inclusiveness.

Multimedia Production: Part 1

This is the first post in the journey for development in multimedia production. I have minimal experience in photography or video production and so this is also a personal learning project. Any useful resources will be shared to enable nurse educators to give it a try themselves (anyone with multimedia experience please add resources in the comments section below). A ‘traditional’ nurse educator approach will be used (i.e. no budget), so whatever resources we already have or can borrow will be used.

  1. First step will be the process of multimedia production.
  2. Step two will be the production side of things.
  3. Step three the equipment, likely using a mobile phone and any free developing apps and potentially a borrowed GoPro.
  4. Step 4 creating and collating playlists

Rule of Thirds

“The guideline proposes that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally spaced horizontal lines and two equally spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections (Wikipedia, 2019).
