Teaching with Video

Why Use Video in Teaching?

Effective video delivery is a powerful means of showcasing educational concepts, whether in traditional classrooms or online learning environments. Harnessing the potential of videos empowers educators to enrich the learning experience, cater to diverse learning styles, and foster interactive and comprehensive educational settings.
This page provides a roadmap of tools tailored to various stages of video creation. For educators working remotely, please consult the remote work recommendations and guidelines.
UIW educators and students have access to the following tools at no cost. It's important to note that while some of these tools are not officially supported by the UIW Help Desk, they are available for use as indicated in the respective drop-down tiles. These "unsupported" platforms are independent of UIW, and the university does not benefit financially from any purchases made through them. UIW assumes no responsibility for any negative experiences with external vendors or platforms.
