Andrea- great poster. I like that you pulled the view lengths, that paints a really interesting picture. You guys must have some good meme-game 😀

I’d love to know more about the accompanying lesson plan. Do you have the available to share?

Love the example video – definitely more fun than videos I’ve created. 😀 What did you use to edit the videos?

Did students watch the videos and also attend the Zoom lecture? If so, were the videos provided before or after the lecture?

I used screencast-o-matic! The free version does the trick for me. The students all watched the videos before. We made sure they were on every first-year composition class’s Blackboard page.

I love the videos. Do you think the casual tone and unscripted feel also helped increase audience retention?
