  • how to prepare media:  smaller pieces rather than one large piece; why smaller is better for students
    We recommend that you create your presentations in episodes of approximately 5-10 minutes each.  This strategy allows some opportunities for both you and your learners:

    • 1.  The learner can more easily manage watching shorter episodes, rather than finding a block of time to watch a long presentation.

    • 2.  Short episodes make the learner more likely to stop and reflect on the essential learning you have presented.

    • 3.  Short episodes allow the learner to more easily watch a presentation again, and retain more of the information.

    • 4.  Episodes that focus on a key concept, or a nuance of a concept, enable you to direct a student to the specific episode that helps them correct a misconception.
