Motivation and emotion/Assessment/Multimedia
5 min. video to accompany book chapter
The goal 
Create a 5 min. instructional video explaining the main problem and relevant theory and research, with examples, based on your chapter.
This assessment task involves creating and publically sharing a multimedia overview of your chapter:
- Chapter overview: Explain and summarise the chapter's problem, key points, and take-away messages.
- Style: The style is very open - it could be in third person but you may also wish to use first person examples or share your viewpoint.
- Format: You could use a screencast or slidecast e.g,. via http://slideshare.net or http://prezi.com) with slides and voice recording (e.g., via http://screenr.com or BB FlashBack Express or a webcam presentation (e.g., via http://youtube.com). Alternatively, you could shoot video off-line using a digital camera, edit (e.g., in Windows Movie Maker) and upload it. If you're not sure and want to keep it simple, the recommended approach is a screencast using http://screenr.com
- Location: Multimedia should be posted for public viewing e.g.,
- Equipment: You will at least need a computer connected to the internet and a microphone to create the multimedia recording.
- Length: 5 min. maximum. No minimum.
- Copyright: Clearly indicate a copyright license (e.g., in the credits and/or meta-data). Ideally, put the recording in the public domain or apply a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Australia license in order to allow the multimedia to be used and re-mixed in this and other open education resource projects.
- Attribution: Provide appropriate acknowledgement e.g., in a list of references/credits at the end and remember that you should have permission for re-use from the copyright holder or claim to be making use of the image under "fair dealing".
- Links: Link to your multimedia presentation from your online textbook chapter. Also provide a link from the multimedia file(s) back to the textbook chapter.
