There is so much content available on public sites. Students use YouTube as much as any other site to figure things out and deepend their understanding. But we (university educators) are tempted to think of ourselves as instead of YouTube instead of in addition to YouTube.
It turns out that instead of creating content of our own to compete with content on YouTube for student attention, we can remix it. We can use features that already exist in the Learning Management System at my university (and probably yours) to mix our own priorities, learning objectives, and student activities into already existing content.
I call this “Educational Remixing”, and below is a video for how to get started.
You can also download the quick guides to educational remixing for your own use.
