Asynchronous on-line teaching

Please leave any tips and tricks on asynchronous on-line teaching here (asynchronous doesn’t require a scheduled meeting).

From Joe Pater

Here are a few hints on video course materials. Usual good advice is to keep each video short, like 5 minutes. If you are just narrating slides, there’s usually no need for the students to see you doing so, though a little bit at the beginning of the video or unit helps personalize it. This page from CUNY 2020 (thanks Brian Dillon!) provides instructions for two ways of making a video presentation: Quicktime/iMovie, or OBS, a platform-independent, open source, free piece of software for making .mp4 videos.
