As an Instructional Technology Specialist, faculty come to me for advice on using technology to increase student success in their classrooms. This is humbling, exhilarating, and incredibly rewarding. One of the most exciting areas of technology currently is the creation of engaging educational video content but unfortunately I do not have much experience in this field. I have used TechSmith | Camtasia, Screen Recorder and Video Editor to create basic screen recordings, videos, and voice annotated presentations and other basic tools like YouTube, Jing, Vimeo. I have heard of some other interesting products to create interactive video and animated video. My question to all of you is what new and/or exciting tools (preferably low-cost or free) have you used to create great educational video and how did you use them (examples and tutorials would be much appreciated).
