Emergency preparedness on campus: the amazing videos my students made
What makes an effective emergency preparedness video for college students? First, students have to want to watch it, then they have to like it enough to keep watching it, and finally they have to learn from it.
My students in Designing Health Campaigns Using Social Media conducted needs assessments that showed that videos needed to be short – generally under 1 or 2 minutes – and funny – but appropriately so. They also had advice from Mark Robertson that videos need a clear message and call to action.
Based on the plans they created, with goals, needs assessment, and competitive analysis, and having their choice of topic and tool, students created what I thought – and the class thought – were really effective videos. I was impressed not just by how well they handled their topics but by the creativity and unique approaches they used.
