After our first two videos (Student Feedback in Turnitin and Student Feedback in Grade Centre) it was time to think of new training videos that could be created. The previous videos have been successful with viewing figures higher than expected (both at 179 views as of 21/06/2018). We also received positive comments from viewers, where it was mentioned that the subject matter was presented in a clear and succinct style.
Taking the comments on board and considering the topics that our face-to-face workshops were covering, we decided on the themes of our new videos. We decided to create 3 videos that explained the basics of undertaking the Marks Integration process.
Marks Integration speeds up the procedure of transferring marks to the student records system. The activity requires lecturers to set up new columns in grade centre, add weighting to the columns, downloading a spreadsheet of the marks for your own personal records and then transferring the marks over. The process was divided into three stages which make up the three videos.
Each video is under one minute in length and presents the subject in the simplest terms. I did not include information on what Marks Integration is, as there is already a Community on GCU Learn that presents this information. The three videos consisted of screen captures and voice overs explaining the procedure. As with the previous videos, Camtasia was used to record and edit.
The Marks Integration videos continue to show how new and unfamiliar procedures can be presented in uncomplicated and succinct training videos.
