Getting started with flipped learning can seem overwhelming. The idea of having to create a ton of your own videos and then find a way to easily share them with your students seems daunting. I thought I would share a couple easy suggestions to help you get started.
Resources for Videos Already Made
These are suggestions of websites that already have a lot of videos and you can search them for ones that might apply to a lesson you want to teach.
WatchKnowLearn - WatchKnowLearn is pretty easy to search. They have a pretty big selection of videos by lots of different subjects and domains.
LearnZillion - LearnZillion focuses on Common Core resources so the videos are for Math and Language Arts. Most of them are short, engaging, and pretty easy to understand.
KhanAcademy - This one is obvious.
StudyJams - I really like Study Jams for Math and Science. The videos are short and animated, They are a little cheesy, but they are good for summarizing information and making it easy to understand.
Resources for Creating Your Own Videos
Creating Animated Videos
Below are resources for creating short, animated or photo-based videos. These seem like they would be fun and engaging.
Creating Videos with White Boards in the Background
The iPad has a lot of great apps for this, but for web-based options here is one:
A lot of websites have file size limits, so some of them can be tricky to use.
Youtube - This is probably the most obvious and easiest option.
Schooltube and Teachertube - These will have more protected backgrounds than Youtube, but I found they had file size limits that did not work with what I needed.
Edpuzzle - This is my favorite solution that I found. We use Edmodo and this ties into our Edmodo account. I can upload videos without a limit. I then assign the videos to the kids on the day that I want them to watch them, and it gives me a progress update on how many people have watched them.
