I did an experiment

I ran an experiment with the free plan of Lumen5.
I have a wish to produce some more videos.
But I have to admit that I currently do not have the resources to do so.
I lack decent video and sound equipment and writing the articles for this blog is already quite time-consuming.

I did an experiment in creating videos with Lumen5.
I have a wish to produce some more videos. But I do not have the resources to do so now.

I then had the idea of taking some of my posts and using these as a basis.

Basically, creating videos with the key points from the post. But also that required some work.

I stumbled upon Lumen5, an online tool that enables you to do just that. Turn your blog posts into a video by importing the post and creating scenes with the key points in the text.

The free plan will add a watermark at the end of the video. I can live with that, given that this is an experiment.

I decided to try and turn my latest post about digital media into a video and uploaded it on YouTube.

You can see the result here.

It is not too bad, I think. But some scenes may need reworking.

Perhaps, it could also be a good tool for the online classroom?

Let me know, what you think.



I am from Germany but have spent more than half of my life in Denmark, and other places abroad. I have a background in teaching, both youngsters and adults. I am interested in a wide field of things, which I love to teach and write about. Sustainability, technology, politics, social change, and mental health are just some examples.
