Instruction – Experiments with Video FAQs

Many of my classes combine teaching software with comprehensive student projects, resulting in common challenges for students once they dive into the work. Rolling out fully virtual instruction has given me the opportunity to pre-record or (in these cases) post-record answers to frequently asked questions so that students can easily refer back and replay at their own pace.

The example below is from my scheduling class, CMCE 2421:

Q: In P6 I’m seeing yellow boxes at the bottom of my screen instead of the details (WBS, activity type, etc.). I don’t know where I clicked or how to get back.

A: Click View > Show on Bottom > Details. See demonstration in the following video.
