Pre-recording (micro)lectures


Using video in your education has never been easier. There's many different ways you can create your own educational video: either comfortably from your home office to professionally at the UT videostudio. You can either use them (partially) substituting your regular lecturing or as extra reference material for your students. Next to that, H5P can be used to make videos interactive and increase the quality of your content.

By using videos you could flexiblize your education: videos enable adapting to a student's way and pace of learning. This also supports you if you're trying to try different educational models, like flipping the classroom or a different blended learning model. But you can also safely try out an instructional video on a smaller scale as well.

How to create your own video?

As stated, creating videos can be done by anyone nowadays. You can either record a PowerPoint from your (home) office or use the video services at the UT to go all-in. You can easily start today or contact the videoteam about your specific case.

We'll be launching a new microlecture course soon! Besides creating your own video, you'll also learn about the different use-cases and facilities available.
