Most traditional lectures given in the lecture hall can range from 50-80 minutes. However, student attention spans online are not what they are in the classroom, and lecture videos should be more in the ballpark of ten minutes. So how do you decide how to take material that you have prepared to be delivered in the long format of the lecture hall and format it for online delivery? Can this only be done ahead of time, or can you take long videos you’ve already filmed and retrofit them for online learning? In this workshop, we will explain the importance of digital content and instructional videos for online learning. We will also share practical techniques of helping students retain knowledge by dividing lecture content and instructional videos into bite sized chunks.
