Feel free to follow a few steps that our team has drafted to make it easy for y’all! 

 

Step 1:       Create a video flowchart/storyboard

 

Step 2:       Look into video platforms that can be utilized to create your Service-Learning video!

 

  • You receive FREE access to Adobe video editing software through the university! 
  • You can access video editing services through your PC or MacBook that are pre-installed
  • Try googling free video editing software (Ex: https://www.wevideo.com/)
    • Remember to exercise caution when it comes to downloading content from the Internet and do so safely

 

Step 3:       Record each segment of your video individually so any mistakes can be edited out. The following methods can be used to easily record your video segments:

 

                   Method One: Make a reservation at YouStar Studio at Alkek Library.  Green screen and speaker notes stand available.

 

                   Method Two: Record a video on Zoom

 

                   Method Three: Photo Booth on Mac.

                

                   Method Four: Camera App for Windows.

               

Step 4:       Use your video editing software to edit out any mistakes, add titles/music/captions/text, or anything else you would like to add

 

Step 5:       Submit your video and it will be reviewed by our team (who will follow the attached rubric).
