Multimedia in the Counselor Education Classroom: Transforming Learning with Video Technology

Michael L. Baltimore


This document addresses video production as it relates to counselor education. Groundwork for infusing video production technology is covered, including the video production process, equipment, computer technology that assists in production, video editing, and final production. In addition, three important formats will be discussed. First is the use of the produced video for streaming on the Internet. Simple procedures for embedding video in PowerPoint slide presentations can be easily achieved. This process can be aimed at distance learning, website enhanced content, and other purposes. A second use for produced video is that of the interactive CD-ROM, a medium also becoming readily accessible, that allows for supplemental or stand-alone content for learning. Finally, a new and exciting format is that of the Digital Video Disc (DVD). A discussion of this editing and production process will show its applicability to teaching and training.
