A Spanish television commercial project is one way students and instructors can use original video recordings in teaching and learning. In STEM areas, video word problems are another possibility. It’s not hard to produce a simple video that is rough around the edges. However, if you need high production values be prepared to spend many hours working with expensive hardware and software.
The Remix website provides lots of ideas for student projects and assignments that involve video recording (follow link and click “Video” at top of page).
