How To Use Keynote to Create Better Video Essays
Matthew Hale / Austin Peay State University
We’re so excited to include the video essay below as part of our special issue, “Essentials, Dilemmas, and ProTips: Teaching Media Studies.” Since the urgent need to shift in-person course instruction to online modalities at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, educators have been exploring, learning, and sharing strategies that work best for their pedagogical goals. The video essay included here doubles as an example of the form’s effectiveness as a teaching tool, and practical walkthrough of the author’s process to create these videos. Specifically, this video essay provides detailed information about how to add voice overs and basic motion graphics, as well as recording/exporting completed lectures directly from Keynote (an Apple application). You can find more of Dr. Matthew Hale’s work at Digital Pedagogy.
