Tools for Making Videos


Other Resources 



  • Video Blogging:  (from wikipedia) sometimes shortened to vlogging [1][2][3] is a form of blogging for which the medium is video.[4] Entries are made regularly and often combine embedded video or a video link with supporting text, images, and other metadata





  • Bonner Video Project
  • Many campuses are engaging students in deeper reflection to examine long-term strategies for change and impact.  Activities like 'Social Justice Film Series' have been created on several campuses.  Student leaders and staff could share not only the lists of these resources, but also specific ideas of clips and how to engage students/volunteers in discussion. 
  • Teams of college students worked with groups of local middle/high school students in New Brunswick, Woodbridge NJ to create short documentaries/PSA's. The subject matter and format were deveoped by the youth participants with help/coaching from college students. College developed relationships with local video production companies to edit and create finished products. These short films were used as recruiting tools both on-campus (to get college students involved) and off-campus (to garner further interest from neighborhood youth)
  • UC-Berkeley students are making video profiles of Cal Corp Public Service tutoring/mentoring sites that will be featured in a Google mashup so students can see where schools and afterschool programs are located, find out all program details, and watch a snapshot of the program in action.      YouTube plugin error
  • From Serve 2.0 Proposal Campus Surveys:
    • From student survey:

      • The videos I have used are also via Facebook.

      • To advertise for a summer program

      • We use a video produced by Get Ready for College!, an organization that fosters college access towards underrepresented students. When middle and high school students visit us, we show it to them.

      • YouTube is ever growing in popularity. Though, I don't think CU is taking advantage of it, students are using the site more often.

      • Youtube has every kind of video imaginable. It can be used to post scenes from an event or sevice activist in a bid to get other students excited about and activity or cause.

      • Whenever something exciting happens or takes place on campus, there will be a link sent to my emial that lets me know this is what I need to watch.

      • We frequently use YouTube to watch news, promos (i.e. the ONE campaign).
      • Used in a student teaching environment for educational purposes to show flamenco dance.
      • We have posted videos of Cool Conferences on youtube.
    • From staff survey:
      • We use youtube to post short clips of our students in community service to increase our celebration of service and to create a buzz around what we do in the Francis Center. We have plans to utlize the videos next year as educational tools about current community issues.
      • Through our participation with the Campus Movie Fest program, as well as our Fall Bonner Exploration, we created videos that highlighted community partnerships as well as geographic areas that we work with. It helped to show students what is out there, without having to spend the money to drive there in person.
      • We use video to shine more of a fun and positive light on service and to help attract the attention of our students who live in a visual society.
      • Record Bonner Events (i.e., retreats, service plunges, special events)
      • You tube is a godsend. We are able to show short films and lectures from various persons and events. We showed a speech by Arundati Roy from YouTube,then had our discussion.
      • Some students use video to document service trips
      • We generally use videos for advocacy efforts or recruitment purposes.
      • We have used video to highlight student service, participation in national conferences, and original videos created by youth participants (PSA's, short documentaries) With the exception of the youth videos, our center has posted original videos on you tube and our facebook page.

I viewed the Media Release Form above - do any campuses have a policy or guidelines around the use of students' work (videos or pictures) on the public web or social media (YouTube, FLickr, Facebook)? The U. of Washington Seattle is currently researching this to develop a policy for use of media.
