When I first read that we are to make an instructional strategies video for the 3250 course, I must admit that a slight sense of panic set in. Though I am comfortable teaching face to face or delivering courses through a blended learning format, I have yet to delve into the world of producing videos.

So instead of climbing into bed and pulling the covers over my head, I decided to embrace this personal challenge and explore the topic of video production further.

What I found was a wonderful article by Jeremy Vest titled Six Steps to Creating High Quality Video Training. In this articles Jeremy explains the importance of instructional videos and offers the reader his six steps to making a great video.

I encourage you to check it out.
