Course Description

ONLINE: Learn, in this online course, to use your mobile device to tell engaging stories and produce content that informs an online audience about a business, hobby, or project. This could be on your own website or any social media page (e.g., Instagram, Facebook or TikTok). Smartphones are capable of capturing professional quality video, and we’ll cover the fundamentals of shooting video content for those new to it. We'll then explore popular social media platforms, and learn how to create work that resonates with the audience on each one. Learn how to shoot, edit, design, and publish this content using inexpensive and/or free software. The instructor will give weekly assignments and provide notes (via individual emails) on all submitted projects. This course is perfect for anyone who wants to produce video stories for social media, or to save and share in other ways, quickly and creatively, using just the smartphone in their hand! | Active Skill Learning.
