In this 1- to 2-hour strategy, students will use Adobe Premiere Rush to create a 30- to 40-second video highlighting interesting information that the student needs to share within a given subject. Utilizing titles and images, students will create a short, fast paced video sharing 3-4 facts to further educate their audience.
Premiere Rush enables students to quickly turn their ideas into videos that impress. You can adapt this strategy to your desired field of study, and this strategy can stand on its own or be paired with video/multimedia strategies to further investigate any desired topic. This strategy can also be adapted for use with other Adobe products, such as Adobe Spark Video.
Introduce students to the video fact sheet strategy and inform them about the topic areas they will be covering in their 30- to 40-second video. (20 minutes)
After selecting their topic, students will write a script and collect the audio and visual resources they will need to create their video fact sheet. A sample script can be reviewed here. (50 minutes)
Students create their video fact sheet using Premiere Rush. They can view a sample project for reference. For guidance on Adobe Premiere Rush students can review this tutorial series and refer to these help pages. (60 minutes)
Students will share and publish your videos for the class to review per your instructor's directions. (10 minutes)
In this strategy, you will use Adobe Premiere Rush to create a 30- to 40-second informational video fact sheet based on your course sharing 3-4 interesting facts about the topic.
Premiere Rush allows you to easily create video content across multiple platforms to help you share amazing and engaging video content with the world.
1. Your instructor will introduce you to the video fact sheet assignment based and give you ideas of what video fact sheets to make. (20 minutes)
Before beginning, check out the student sample to get a sense of the type of content you will be creating. Consider:
What worked well?
Was the visual presented helpful in engaging you with the content?
What would you have done differently?
Identify the subject matter for your video fact sheet video.
2. With your topic selected, collect information and media material you need to create your video. (50 minutes)
Start by reviewing your chosen subject matter for your video. Write down some notes based on what you want to cover and the order you want to cover them in. Once this is done, you will write a short script.
The video will only be up to 40-seconds so keep it brief and focus on the 3-4 facts you want to share with your audience. Review the student sample script for your reference. You can use this format to help you create your script.
With your script written, it is time to source the content you will need to edit your video together. If you are having trouble finding photos and media for your project, Penn State has put together the Free Media Library, an amazing list of places where you can source creative commons licensed and other free media resources that you should use for this or any other project!
Pro Tip: Put all photos, video and audio you collect for your project in a folder that is easy for you to find on your computer, this will save a ton of time when you start adding them to your projects.
With your script written and your media selected, you can now create your project!
3. Create your video fact sheet using Premiere Rush. (60 minutes)
Keep the following in mind when crafting your video fact sheet:
Start by bringing in some of your media. Details for starting your project importing your media can be found here.
If you are recording a separate voiceover, you can add a voiceover to this project, be sure to record your voice-over in a relatively quiet space if at all possible. Remember, you can record your voice over in sections. You do not have to do it all at once.
You can bring in additional media as needed by clicking the “+” button then “Add Media.”
Media includes any audio, video or images you would like to add to your project.
Rush has different title options, which you will use to bring elements from your script into your video project that are fully customizable. For a tutorial, click here.
The “Pan and Zoom” feature will allow you to add motion to any still images you add to your project.
Choose a soundtrack to put underneath your video fact sheet; this will help things feel cohesive. Premiere Rush has quite a few music tracks built in to choose from, or you can find royalty free soundtracks using the Free Media Library.
This project does not need to be perfect. Do your best, focus on the message you are trying to convey and have fun with it!
4. Share and publish your videos for the class to review per your instructor's directions. (10 minutes)
Consult the attached rubric in order to evaluate students' videos.
