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.



My Name is Alexander Benesch, but it is okay to just address me with Alex. I am from Germany but have spent more than half of my life in Denmark, where I have been teaching special needs students, among many other activities. I write about education and teaching, provide tips for teachers and lesson materials, and blog about educational technology. I also offer my tutoring services via the blog. I am passionate about teaching and I have many thoughts and opinions about pedagogy, education, and social issues. I believe that our education systems need a major revolution to be fit for the challenges that humanity faces in the 21st century. That is why I decided to write about it.
