You can teach your learning goals that don’t require videos through lecture notes, assigned readings, discussion boards, podcasts, and online activities. (You can check out my LMS site for some例子。)
(For example, I have created教学比赛和种族主义18个视频，你会发现，而不是创建自己的视频，解释了一些有用的种族和民族之间的差异or what种族形成理论是。）
Making videos for teaching can be fun, although making high-quality videos takes a lot of time. I took over a year to make those 18 videos, and I had a lot of help. Here are a few simple steps to follow to make your videos.
我们的大脑使用两个主要渠道接受信息 - 音频和视频。我们可以同时使用两个通道，但只能采取输入上一次一个类型的信道。无论听和读的话是对的音频通道。所以，我们可以听到在图像声音和样子。但是，我们不能听音频，并在同一时间读单词。因此，如果你在屏幕上显示的话，请你说话一样的，并保持最低限度的话。
Step 3: Create a story board that assigns media for each sentence in your video.
I use PowerPoint for my story boards, but you should use whatever technology is easiest for you. Some people like to use Excel sheets for story boards, for example.
还有像网站提供吨的免费图片pexels，unsplash，andflickr。You can also find historical images in wikicommons. Try to find images that add value to what you are saying. If you are talking about emotional bonds, for example, you can show a photo of a mother and child. The image reinforces the message. Look at each sentence and decide if it can be conveyed using an image.
Step 5: Add in one or two pre-recorded videos。
Pexels and other sites also have free videos available that you can record your voice over. The use of moving images instead of still images can keep the viewer entertained for longer periods of time. There may also be concepts that are better captured through movement such as the movement of boats across water to discuss migration via sea routes.
Step 6: Add in slides with words, phrases, or figures that are critical.
Your slides with just words on them should be minimal. But, if there is a definition, concept, sentence, or figure students need to see, include a slide with that concept.

Step 7: Include some live-action
As should be clear, making good videos takes a lot of thought and time. So, only make videos for your classes if you have determined you really need them. Otherwise, use alternative methods of conveying information.
