Six second video review.

So, a week or so ago I asked my class to provide me with a six second video. This video would need to outline a topic of a technical nature and the task would not be graded…..just a bit of fun. I provided them with an example video (as seen in my first blog) and asked them to have fun when making bit.

I was apprehensive as there was very little by way of incentive. I didn’t even tell them what I planned to do with the video. So to my astonishment I had 40/60 topic videos returned to me within ten days of my request!!

What was even more astonishing was the quality of the end product. Here are three of my personal favorites:

 

Coronary artery bypass graft.

 

and my all time favorite:

 

Last week I thanked them for their efforts and told them that I intend to place them within the slide material and will open them up when the topic is covered. I could see from their faces that there was an element of shock and excitement. It seemed to all work very well!

This was a very cool project and one that I will definitely try to do each semester. I think this will promote engagement and keep things light in what is a very theory based paper.
