In my previous post, the idea was to reflect about if I have the mobile learning competencies and skills needed. The first task for week 2 was convert a Power Point presentation into a Youtube video.

Why should we convert a Power Point into a Youtube video?

During the week 2 the topic is Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs). Most of us have presentations that we use for a face-to-face training. Turning your presentations into a video format can make these presentations into a reusable objects and can be used along different contexts, not only during face to face trainings. Another goodie of converting a ppt into a Youtube video is that it can be accessible from any platform and most of mobile phones can reproduce Youtube videos.

Some important recommendations when creating a video:

  • Keep videos short, up to 5-10 minutes in length.
  • Focus on just a single topic

This is my presentation converted into Youtube video

Here is the presentation

How to convert your power point into a Youtube video

There are different ways to do it.

Option 1

Option 2

My power point today wasn’t in the mood to work properly today. That’s why I had to do the following workaround.

  1. Upload your presentation in Google Drive as a presentation
  2. Start your presentation
  3. Open Quicktime and start a screen recording. You have to set up the recording preferences so you record your voice during the presentation.
  4. Once you’re done, use Quicktime to trim the video
  5. Upload your video on Youtube.

And that’s it.
