Developing Effective Screencast Modules for Teaching Computational Techniques in Remote Modalities. Journal Article uri icon



  • Here we describe a systematic approach towards creating effective screencast based modules for teaching computational techniques in remote and online modalities. We adopted a multi-stage approach to create screencast videos that replaced in-person demos and active learning content in a finite element analysis based class. The stages include systematic preparation of video data and script; production stage, for recording and editing of captured video and audio; and post-production stage, for uploading generated media files into our learning management system. Modules were paired with assignments, thereby enhancing student learning and enabling assessment of module content efficacy. Our approach and technology received highly positive reception from students. Students also successfully navigated all associated assignments and final course project, which builds upon the content addressed in the modules. We identified several avenues for improvement in continued future offerings of such modules. We have outlined our design experience and student reception of screencast based modules for creating engaging learning content in remote teaching modalities. The description has been presented in form of teaching tips for other educators to adopt for their teaching needs.
