When students pay for a digital product, they tend to expect a certain level of professional material.
HD video is now a universal expectation. Beyond that, students ability to see what’s on screen directly impacts the quality of their learning experience.
Students expect you to know what you are talking about. Written lectures need to include proper formatting, grammar, punctuation, etc. Make sure you clearly enunciate your words when recording video and pause to emphasize important points. Maintain a professional and straightforward speaking style (with very few “filler words” like umm or ahh).
Good Audio Has:
- No background noises or hums (usually comes from electronics, appliances, environmental noise, and mic setup issues)
- Little to no echo (usually comes from undampened hard surfaces in your recording space or from recording in too big a space)
- No distracting “popping” sounds on “p” and “t” sounds (not all voices and mics have this problem, but if you do, a pop filter helps)
- Adequate base volume that comes out of both headphone buds
Good Video Quality is:
- In HD, 720p or 1080p with 16:9 aspect ratio
- Clear, not blurry, so students can see you and your learning material easily
- Steady, not shaky
- Well-framed and zoomed-in appropriately so students can easily follow along with what’s on screen
- Well-lit and free of distractions in the video frame, so that it looks like you took a few minutes to tidy up and present yourself in a friendly and professional light
