Recall the article from the first chapter of this section about designing video for instruction. That article illustrates how to match a desired outcome to a video genre. For example, instructors wanting students to perform a specific set of tasks can use a step-by-step video.
Considering the article, I used the following video called Alone in the Wilderness as an example of a step-by-step video. While it didn’t give every step and I had to consult a number of other sources, it did get me started. I used an iPad to document the process. There are many lessons I took away from the experience, including the realization that accompanying the video with a voice-over would improve the video’s effectiveness as a teaching tool.
