[00:00:01.600]My name is Jennifer Johnson Jorgensen,
and I'm an assistant professor
[00:00:05.000]in the Department of Textiles,
Merchandizing and Fashion Design.
[00:00:08.320]And I'm excited to share with you
a little bit about the project
[00:00:11.280]that I've been working
on, trying to integrate video into an OER
[00:00:16.280]resource for my students that are part
[00:00:18.880]of the capstone course
within our department.
[00:00:22.080]And so with this capstone course,
every student, regardless of program
[00:00:26.600]option, takes the course
and half of the course is devoted
[00:00:31.200]to professional development for the
apparel, textiles and retail industries.
[00:00:35.360]And the other half is on trend analysis.
[00:00:38.160]So getting students to use data
to be able to project
[00:00:42.080]what is going to be happening
30 to 50 years from now.
[00:00:46.200]And so it's a great course,
but students are always clamoring
[00:00:50.240]for more information
about professional development.
[00:00:54.560]And so I really wanted to delve
into that module first and develop
[00:00:59.920]an OER resource that really would provide
[00:01:03.760]different bits of information that could
benefit students once they graduate.
[00:01:08.680]And so I wanted to share the module
and what it looks like with you.
[00:01:12.840]So I'll go ahead and share my screen.
[00:01:15.600]And of course,
it looks like a typical canvas course.
[00:01:20.000]This course is in-person.
[00:01:22.200]However, I wanted the information
for the course that OER
[00:01:26.000]resource to be available on canvas
and so these different pages
[00:01:31.160]consist of the OER content.
[00:01:35.960]And so I
[00:01:37.000]have things divided by week and each week
[00:01:40.040]I have a to do list to start off the week
so students know what to expect.
[00:01:44.960]And then we start jumping
into different activities
[00:01:49.520]available online before they come to class
[00:01:52.640]so that they can become familiar
with the content that we'll be discussing.
[00:01:57.640]So we start off right away
discussing things like resumes
[00:02:00.920]and cover letters,
kind of the typical things that we
[00:02:05.000]want students to walk away
so that they can secure a job.
[00:02:10.400]And so we also have
[00:02:12.680]assignments involved with this as well,
[00:02:16.440]and we have videos that we've created
as a part of this OER resource.
[00:02:21.920]And so these videos really provide
the foundation for the information.
[00:02:26.680]And overall based on student feedback.
[00:02:29.960]Students really liked the videos.
[00:02:32.440]Now the videos are fairly short in length.
[00:02:35.080]And again, research says
the shorter, the better So the videos
[00:02:39.880]that we have
are from about a minute to 2 minutes long.
[00:02:44.560]So very short snippets really focused in
[00:02:47.320]on different topics throughout the week.
[00:02:52.400]So I'll go ahead and play this,
[00:02:55.080]this video focusing on resumes
just as an example.
[00:02:59.360]And then afterwards, I'll share some
of the challenges that I ran into as well.
[00:03:09.720]So for a
[00:03:11.560]creative industry, you want your résumé
[00:03:14.720]to be a bit more expressive
of your personality.
[00:03:18.840]So we want it to have some colorful
[00:03:23.920]elements some fun graphics, like a
[00:03:32.080]And it's so nice to be clear and concise
where you could put things in your box
[00:03:37.960]throughout the course.
[00:03:42.440]So you can add a few different sections.
[00:03:45.320]You can have your educational section
[00:03:49.160]and background section of your employment
[00:03:53.680]relevant for that job.
[00:03:55.880]Your contact information
[00:03:58.120]or the personal logo that.
[00:04:03.200]And then of course, you're going to need
which are both technical and soft skills.
[00:04:10.880]And you could really use those
[00:04:14.600]according to the job description.
[00:04:17.280]So it's asking for a problem solver
into your soft skills section
[00:04:26.240]as well as other things like communication
skills writing skills.
[00:04:32.400]And then of course, for technical
things like Adobe
[00:04:36.600]Photoshop, Microsoft Word, Excel,
[00:04:41.040]Google G Suite, Outlook, email,
[00:04:45.120]and anything else that you like.
[00:04:54.840]And so for each video,
[00:05:00.680]I wanted to integrate different viewpoints
from industry professionals.
[00:05:05.880]And I also wanted to have an opportunity
for students to have key takeaways.
[00:05:12.000]So you probably saw at the end
[00:05:13.760]there was kind of a a portion of the video
that said key takeaways.
[00:05:17.960]And then a couple of bullet points
just so that students could sum up easily
[00:05:22.720]what really the information was saying.
[00:05:27.920]I also wanted to
[00:05:28.680]include just a branding slide,
just so that as this
[00:05:32.920]OER resource is shared across
kind of where the origin of this is.
[00:05:41.400]So a few challenges that I ran into
with creating these videos.
[00:05:46.280]It was fairly difficult,
especially because of COVID
[00:05:49.560]to recruit industry professionals
to be able to come to campus.
[00:05:53.960]So me trying to go out into the industry
and get these interviews.
[00:06:00.720]Kind of was the tactic
that I needed to take.
[00:06:04.040]The other thing was the audio.
[00:06:06.520]And you probably noticed
[00:06:07.800]when the videos started playing, there's
kind of this white noise in the background
[00:06:12.720]I tried a lot of different things
to try to cut down on that white noise,
[00:06:18.440]and I just couldn't
find a good way to do that.
[00:06:22.840]I tried lapel microphones
[00:06:25.200]or a regular microphone,
and it just wasn't working.
[00:06:28.880]However, I did want the flexibility
of not being in a studio
[00:06:34.400]so that I could reach the industry
professional more easily.
[00:06:38.520]So overall, some challenges to think about
if you're hoping to integrate
[00:06:43.960]this kind of a video
within your OER resource.
[00:06:47.800]And I also wanted to share with you
[00:06:50.520]the video editing software that I used.
[00:06:53.600]And I was really impressed
with this editing software.
[00:06:57.080]Some of you might be familiar
with it already,
[00:07:00.320]but Magisto is fantastic,
[00:07:03.120]it's really easy to use, very intuitive.
[00:07:06.520]And I just can't say
enough good stuff about it.
[00:07:09.760]So I wanted to share it with you.
[00:07:11.000]And this is basically
the start of your video.
[00:07:13.520]And you can just click Add Media
[00:07:15.600]and you can find different stock photos
if you need.
[00:07:19.720]You can also upload pictures.
[00:07:22.560]You can upload your video clips.
[00:07:26.040]And once you do that, you can just
[00:07:30.080]click upload, and that process will start.
[00:07:33.640]So I'm going to just click on a few things
and click ADD.
[00:07:38.080]And then from there,
you'll just click next
[00:07:41.400]and you'll choose kind of the vibe
that you want your video to have.
[00:07:46.000]And so these are
all of the different options.
[00:07:48.480]And you can kind of go through and see
which one has kind
[00:07:52.760]of the look that you're going for.
[00:07:55.880]Once you identify that and you
[00:08:00.600]So go choose this one sounds upbeat
and then click preview.
[00:08:05.720]And this is where Magisto starts
taking what it thinks
[00:08:10.880]is important from the clip and starts
piecing it together
[00:08:14.120]along with the pictures
that you've included.
[00:08:17.680]And once the video is done,
you can move around the pictures,
[00:08:21.720]you can edit the video clip
however you need.
[00:08:25.800]And overall, just incredibly intuitive
[00:08:30.520]So please let me
[00:08:32.400]know if you have any questions about this
if you haven't used it before.
[00:08:36.800]Also, if you have any tips for me,
please let me know that as well.
[00:08:40.840]And I hope to hear from you.
[00:08:43.320]Thank you so much.
