Taking the Classroom Outdoors

We wanted to work together in a safe way, so we took it outside. We spent the day filming lecture segments in natural settings and with a portable green screen. The ability to break up the content into viewable segments, add call outs and animations, and create unique backgrounds made for really engaging material that students may actually watch more than once during asynchronous sessions.
