ES.333 Production of Educational Videos: Skills for Communicating Academic and Professional Content

Class Info

Develops communication and media skills through the production of educational videos. Students conceive, plan, script, shoot and edit video content to teach elements of MIT's curriculum. Each student creates a series of short videos that concisely explains and contextualizes specific problems of importance to disciplines at MIT, especially physics, math, chemistry, biology, or the humanities. The resulting videos present these problems through compelling use of illustrations, demonstrations, animations, and commentary, all from the student's perspective. Empowers students specifically to communicate their MIT expertise to communities of learners and generally to reach broad audiences with quality, accessible online content. Limited to 12; preference to students in ESG.

This class has no prerequisites.

ES.333 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by G. Ramsay and D. Custer.

Lecture occurs 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 24-618.
