EduTubePlus: Virtual Workshop on Creating Your Own Video
A series of online modules for creative and curious teachers who are keen on integrating video in their classroom activities. You will learn in a number of simple steps how you can complement your learning and teaching activities with (moving) images. Moreover, you will also learn how you can create these materials yourself so that they are fit for use.
This workshop was created in the framework of the EduTubePlus project (www.edutubeplus.info) along with face-to-face training sessions that took place in 2009 and 2010. The lesson plans that are mentioned in the workshop are only accessible to EduTubePlus portal users.
The EduTubePlus project aims to develop a European hybrid, multilingual video-based service for schools. This service will integrate thousands of multi-lingual curriculum-related video-clips by major European educational TV & video providers, with tools enabling educators to enrich the library with user-generated clips. The EduTubePlus service will enable users to develop, translate and share video-based learning scenarios and lessons, to search resources using terms related to their national curriculum and to use video in a pedagogically relevant manner in-class.
The EduTubePlus service will come about as a result of the effective adaptation, extension and integration of existing digital educational video resources and services, robust technical solutions, pedagogical knowledge, best practices and success stories.

- Introduction - What do you need when making videos?
