Drumming up educational videos

Posted on: April 30, 2013

Video source

At first glance, this video does not seem like an educational one. Or rather, it might not seem to use any principles of design for educational videos.

But on closer inspection and reflection, I see that:

  • The longer, raw video is not as exciting nor does it send the intended message
  • A short, tightly-edited video is better at telling a story
  • It is important to credit ideas, if not in the video then in the text that accompanies it
  • A video is nothing without planning for social interaction around it
