so today I'm going to talk<font color="#CCCCCC"> you through</font>

how to create a Khan Academy style video like this one so for this demonstration I thought what better subject to base it on than the actual<font color="#E5E5E5"> process of creating</font> such a<font color="#E5E5E5"> video so or very matter but I</font> hope you'll bear with me and there are

two things<font color="#CCCCCC"> that you really</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> need to</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">create a video like this one firstly you</font> need the equipment so that's<font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font> hardware and software it goes into physically producing a video like this and then the second<font color="#CCCCCC"> thing you need well</font>

that you<font color="#E5E5E5"> need to consider is the</font> delivery so how to address the learners and make the material accessible and there are recommendations from<font color="#E5E5E5"> carnac</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">added me themselves which I'm going to</font> be covering<font color="#E5E5E5"> later and which I'm probably</font>

about to break as I as I go through the actual tutorial but we'll see how<font color="#CCCCCC"> we go</font> so if we<font color="#CCCCCC"> start with the equipment</font> creating a video like this is a very <font color="#CCCCCC">simple process you don't need to spend</font> huge amounts of<font color="#CCCCCC"> money on hardware and</font>

software the hardware's the kind of important part<font color="#CCCCCC"> really once you've got</font> that<font color="#E5E5E5"> then a lot of the software you can</font> get for free so the<font color="#E5E5E5"> first thing you need</font> is a graphics tablet like the one on which I'm currently writing so again

very<font color="#E5E5E5"> self referential and matter and</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">they'll make it even more so by drawing</font> a little icon of a graphics tablet on the<font color="#E5E5E5"> graphics tablet i'm using and so the</font> graphics tablet that i have here wacom bamboo and these seem<font color="#CCCCCC"> to be very</font>

popular<font color="#E5E5E5"> I found it</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> very effective and</font> it's the actual graphics tablet that Sal Khan himself has worked on and recommends so once you've got your graphics tablet the next thing you need is some<font color="#CCCCCC"> drawing software</font>

say the piece of software I'm using is called Smith draw for it has a leg<font color="#E5E5E5"> a</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">well not really</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> anything like this but a</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">little empty the drawer as best I can</font> that's a piece of software for the<font color="#E5E5E5"> PC</font> and the current long version<font color="#E5E5E5"> for and</font>

it's free if you're using a Mac instead <font color="#CCCCCC">of a pc there's a piece of software</font> called SketchBook Express say for Mac users you can<font color="#E5E5E5"> get your hands on this</font> again for free so the third item that you need to create such a video<font color="#E5E5E5"> is a</font>

screen recorder and as you expect it's a piece of software which allows you to record what you're doing on the screen <font color="#E5E5E5">so i'm using a bit of software called</font> Camtasia and that's<font color="#CCCCCC"> Camtasia Studio say</font> within Camtasia you have Camtasia

recorder which is the element that allows me<font color="#CCCCCC"> to do this screen recording</font> and Camtasia is quite pricey it's about 150 pounds if I remember correctly for the full version that<font color="#E5E5E5"> I'm using however</font> again if you<font color="#CCCCCC"> want to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> kind of use some</font>

free software there's a piece of software called camstudio and if you're on Mac<font color="#CCCCCC"> quick time itself actually</font> has a screen recording functionality built in as well as that there's lots<font color="#E5E5E5"> of</font> kind of web apps that do it and say one

that comes to<font color="#E5E5E5"> mind</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> is called screen cast</font> o matic so if you just google that and it should come up the kind<font color="#E5E5E5"> of final</font> essential piece of<font color="#E5E5E5"> equipment you need</font> then is a microphone and i really recommend<font color="#E5E5E5"> in investing in a USB</font>

microphone rather than one that<font color="#E5E5E5"> has a</font> three-and-a-half millimeter jack<font color="#E5E5E5"> so not</font> one like your normal kind<font color="#E5E5E5"> of headphone</font> jack one that has a USB<font color="#E5E5E5"> cable which</font> allows you to plug in and<font color="#E5E5E5"> i'm using one</font> that's a condenser microphone looks a

little something<font color="#E5E5E5"> like</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> this and it's made</font> by samson the one I have<font color="#CCCCCC"> so that's</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">Samson</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and the model is c01u and again</font> this costs a little bit of<font color="#CCCCCC"> money</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> it's</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">about 60 pounds i think but it's really</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">worth investing in because you know</font>

they're excellent and they and they last a long time so they're your four essential pieces of equipment really for creating a video like this and<font color="#CCCCCC"> just to</font> highlight the differences we've got a piece of hardware here obviously the

microphones hardware as well and then the two pieces<font color="#E5E5E5"> of software you need</font> which you're a screen recorder and the actual drawing software there's a final piece of<font color="#E5E5E5"> software which you may want to</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">consider say</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I'll squeeze that in the in</font>

the middle<font color="#E5E5E5"> there</font> and that's editing software say if<font color="#CCCCCC"> you</font> don't get<font color="#E5E5E5"> your screen recording right</font> first time or you you know<font color="#E5E5E5"> you want to</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">take a break and edit it back together</font> then some editing software such as as I

say Camtasia Studio that's a piece of editing software or Premiere Pro sir Davey<font color="#E5E5E5"> premier pray and then on Mac I</font> movie there's<font color="#CCCCCC"> a two great pieces of</font> software i think i may be comes with the mac as<font color="#E5E5E5"> well so that's really all the</font>

equipment<font color="#CCCCCC"> you need we'll move on now and</font> have a look at delivery so as<font color="#E5E5E5"> I mentioned at the beginning Khan</font> Academy themselves actually give recommendations as to the delivery and the first thing they they recommend and

they can't<font color="#E5E5E5"> really stress this enough is</font> that videos are conversational say you should speak as if you're in the same room as the<font color="#CCCCCC"> the learner that you are</font> hoping to impart knowledge to avoid highly scripted videos<font color="#E5E5E5"> say although</font>

that's been the kind of staple of creating tutorial videos for many years Khan Academy recommend that you avoid scripting it the the reasons they give for this is that<font color="#E5E5E5"> you can</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> come</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> across</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> as</font> a<font color="#E5E5E5"> robot or you know this puts a distance</font>

between<font color="#CCCCCC"> you and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the learner it doesn't</font> seem real so quite quickly people can switch off from videos that have been highly scripted the second piece of advice is to inject emotion and personality so I don't know<font color="#E5E5E5"> if I've</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> been</font>

successful doing<font color="#E5E5E5"> this today being a</font> cynical<font color="#E5E5E5"> English man I don't necessarily</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">have the same kind</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> of dynamism in my</font> voice as a sum of the the American counterparts I see on Khan Academy but you know<font color="#E5E5E5"> hopefully the register i'm</font>

using includes a bit of the<font color="#CCCCCC"> Hartford</font> sure roots and then some northern inflections which will hopefully inject a bit of personality into into<font color="#E5E5E5"> the video</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">the moving</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> on there sorry the next piece</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">of advice is that you don't talk above</font>

or below the learner so this<font color="#CCCCCC"> is this is quite a difficult one</font> to gauge really<font color="#E5E5E5"> I'd say the best way to</font> approach<font color="#CCCCCC"> it is</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you know think think</font> about who the kind<font color="#E5E5E5"> of target audience</font> for your video is and and then place

<font color="#E5E5E5">yourself in the classroom situation you</font> know you wouldn't<font color="#E5E5E5"> speak in the same way</font> to a post-grad as you would to a GCSE student sorry i'll just add that info clarity and finally then is just the use of colors and visuals<font color="#CCCCCC"> so trying to</font>

engage<font color="#CCCCCC"> the learner with visuals as well</font> as the dialogue hopefully<font color="#CCCCCC"> I've</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> tried to</font> use a range of colors in this video<font color="#CCCCCC"> and</font> I've tried<font color="#E5E5E5"> to diagram where i can smooth</font> draw actually makes it really easy to set up presets say as you can<font color="#E5E5E5"> see I've</font>

been changing colors and if I was capturing the whole screen you'd be able to<font color="#E5E5E5"> see</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> how quickly i'm able</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to just</font> change between these colors using the f keys on my laptop<font color="#E5E5E5"> there they're really</font> easy to set up as is setting up

shortcuts for the different types of pens and pencils you want to use so i've been<font color="#E5E5E5"> using a pen that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the whole way</font> through but i can very quickly switch to pencil or other tools such as the the eraser and for<font color="#CCCCCC"> example spray can which</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">I've got here I don't</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> think I'd er I'd</font> ever want to use that<font color="#E5E5E5"> pink white car</font> services at the moment with my video making but you can see that there's a lot<font color="#CCCCCC"> of possibilities within a piece of</font> software like this so the the<font color="#E5E5E5"> final</font>

thing to consider is to prepare your mind that's the way I can't Academy put it say think about the subject which you're <font color="#CCCCCC">going to be speaking about hopefully the</font> whatever is let's suppose a little

<font color="#CCCCCC">drawing of brain but whatever you're</font> going<font color="#E5E5E5"> to be</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> speaking about is hopefully</font> a subject you're very familiar with so it's just a<font color="#E5E5E5"> matter of talking through it</font> yourself before you come to do your recording so the kind<font color="#E5E5E5"> of last thing I'll</font>

mention then is really the length and I feel that I've<font color="#E5E5E5"> probably broken this rule</font> let's have a look yes I have won 13 minutes so ideally<font color="#E5E5E5"> video should last no</font> longer than 10 minutes if I were a<font color="#E5E5E5"> more</font> mendacious fellow I'd claim to have run

over<font color="#E5E5E5"> the 10-minute mark intentionally as</font> to illustrate one of Khan Academy's other recommendations which is to split up lengthy videos into chapters or sections that the<font color="#CCCCCC"> the viewer can</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> then</font> flick between however that's not in fact

<font color="#E5E5E5">the case I had planned for the video to</font> be slightly shorter than this still it does give me<font color="#CCCCCC"> an opportunity to</font> demonstrate what that might look like say when I go to edit the video<font color="#E5E5E5"> I'll</font> split it up into two chapters one

chapter for the information<font color="#CCCCCC"> I covered on</font> equipment and one chapter on<font color="#CCCCCC"> the</font> recommendations<font color="#CCCCCC"> for delivery the reason</font> they recommend we do<font color="#E5E5E5"> this is that it</font> allows students to focus in<font color="#CCCCCC"> on a section</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">that's of particular interest to them it</font>

may be that they've already covered the contents that<font color="#E5E5E5"> you're featuring in the in</font> the<font color="#E5E5E5"> first part of your video and</font> therefore may wish to skip it and focus in on some<font color="#CCCCCC"> of the content that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you're</font> covering<font color="#CCCCCC"> later so that's really all you</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">need to know in terms of the basics for</font> creating a Khan Academy style video there are<font color="#CCCCCC"> lots of tutorials online on</font> how to use<font color="#E5E5E5"> the specific software I've</font> mentioned and<font color="#E5E5E5"> I'll also try to put</font> together

some such videos myself thank<font color="#E5E5E5"> you</font>
