lecture breakers podcast teaching and learning creating effective videos with karen costa




Let's talk about videos! Our guest for episode 23 of the Lecture Breakers podcast is Karen Costa, the author of the book  99 Tips for Creating Simple and Sustainable Educational Videos.*

Now, I am one of those people who would rather read than watch a video. I’d rather write than speak on a video. The idea of creating my own videos just overwhelms me. The lighting, the technology, the sound quality, the slide design, how many slides, how long should the video be . . . all of these details can stress me out.

But, I've seen the research about videos. I know how powerful videos can be for teaching and learning, which is why I invited Karen to the show.

Her approach is all about creating a simple and sustainable process for using videos in your courses. Sign me up!

And I must say that after this conversation with her, I feel more confident - dare I say even excited - about using videos in my online courses and webinars. I like her approach and the tips she shares, and I know you will too.


In this episode, you'll learn more about: 

  • how to humanize online learning by creating videos that connect with students.

  • how to create a simple and sustainable system you can keep up with without getting overwhelmed.

  • how to let go of thinking your videos need to be "fancy" and overproduced.

  • how to speak from the heart and why it matters in your online videos.

  • how long your videos should be.
