What Is A "No Edit Video?"
A "no edit video" is a (generally) short video recorded without any later editing. Basically, you record it and you're done!
If you mess up when recording a "no edit video," you just start over and try again. In addition to the methods described below, you can also use SCREENCASTING tools.
Method 1: Record with QuickTime Player
QuickTime Player is a free program on every MacOS computer (like Casady faculty's MacBook Air laptops) which can readily record a short video. This 5.5 minute tutorial demonstrates how do to this.
Remember after you record and STOP your selfie video in QuickTime Player:
- From the FILE menu choose EXPORT AS - 720P.
- Save it with the desired filename, in a location you want (DESKTOP works well)
- Upload your video to Google Drive or YouTube (Guidelines on how to decide are available)
- Share your video in your interactive learning platform (Google Classroom, Seesaw or MyCasady)
Method 2: Use a tripod and smartphone mount / clamp
This is an example of a lovely no-edit video a teacher recorded using a tripod and smartphone mount / clamp.
You do not HAVE to use a tripod and mount when recording yourself using an iPhone or an iPad, but it's possible your finished video may look like footage from the Blair Witch Project. (Hint: That's NOT a good thing.)
A variety of tripods and smartphone mounts are available. This is a smartphone mount available from Amazon for $8. This is a basic tripod for $16.50 from Amazon.
Method 3: Add a Whiteboard to Method 2
Effective videos can be created adding a whiteboard to the techniques described in Method #2 above.
