On Making A Video Lecture on iPad and Uploading to YouTube

On Making A Video Lecture on iPad and Uploading to YouTube

While we are scrambling to take the courses we teach from face-to-face format to remote format, we all could use simple tools to make the process simple and easy to implement.  I have created two extensive tutorials.

The first tutorial  shows step-by-step instructions on screencasting your lecture with an iPad using any stylus, editing the video in the Imovie app of iPad, uploading it to YouTube, or directly to your LMS.

The second tutorial illustrates on how to embed any YouTube video to your Canvas LMS course content.

I have been recording and uploading the videos to my Canvas course since Spring 2019, but following the same procedure has been frustrating as it takes several hours for videos to process. I really can’t blame anyone; there is an unprecedented load to the servers.

That is the reason I created this alternative method tutorial on using 1) YouTube as a platform to upload and store your content  and then 2) embedding the videos to Canvas.

This process works flawlessly as the videos are not stored on the LMS servers.

Audiovisual Lectures for Novice Programmers

The other day, a student asked me if I would recommend freely-available online digital audiovisual lectures  for those students who are learning programming for the first time.  I can point out three sources I have used myself and to say the least, I have been inspired.  Over the last two years, I have used their teaching techniques and examples in my own 1-credit hour EML3035 Programming Concepts course at the University of South Florida.  I do not have audiovisual lectures but I have several scripts to help you along if you use MATLAB.  Let me know what you think.

1. Harvard’s David Malan: Introduction to Computer Science   

2. MITs duo Eric Grimsom and John Guttag: Introduction to Computer Science and Programming

3. Stanford’s Mehran Sahami Computer Science I: Programming Methodology

YouTube Videos on Numerical Methods Cross 1-Million Views Mark

In a short 2.5 years since starting the numericalmethodsguy YouTube channel in January 2009, this month the channel crossed the benchmark of receiving 1 million video views.  Currently the channel gets between 2,500-3,500 video views per day.  Although we have playlists on the channel, the playlist for all the available topics are given on single webpage at http://numericalmethods.eng.usf.edu/videos/index.html

Complete resources on each topic of available numerical methods including textbook chapters, videos, multiple-choice tests, PPTs, and worksheets are  given at http://numericalmethods.eng.usf.edu/topics/textbook_index.html
