“Student Video Production: Assignment to Assessment” by Rulisha Chetty & Nicola Pallitt


The value of student video productions in higher education is often understated in discussions related to ICTs in education, where the topic of lecture recording dominates. This concerns students’ consumption of video rather than production. We would like to shift from the notion of video as just a resource to focus on video as a teaching and learning strategy/task where the end product is as important as the filmmaking process.

This guide takes you through the process of setting up the assignment and preparing students for it, video editing software, ethical and legal issues to consider as well as how to assess student video projects.
