Making videos / cloud concepts

‘Cloud concepts’ at Deakin refers to short videos. These videos may be used to add ‘life’ to a key concept or area of study; help to explain a complex idea; or enhance student engagement. They free up classroom time to focus on application and a deeper understanding of those core concepts.

Camera tips
  • Check your iPad camera & microphone are not covered by your fingers or your iPad cover while recording.
  • You/your subject should make eye contact with the camera on the edge of the iPad (not self in the middle of screen).
  • You can use the volume button (top right-hand side of the iPad) to take a photo or start recording.
