Massive open online course videos (MOOC)

Videoproduction of three e-learning courses (MOOCs) for Iversity.

The Global Labour University (GLU) is a network of trade unions, universities, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung and the ILO (International Labour Organisation) to deliver high-level qualification programmes as video lectures.

Together with different global experts and the project management from the university in Kassel we produced three video online courses with around 20 videos per course. Every e-learning programme contains a trailer for social media video ads. Some videos got graphic illustrations and 2D animations to visualize the spoken content.

In our simple studio setup with grey background in our office in Berlin Kreuzberg we filmed the German speakers. Other experts from around the world were filmed by other studios and some filmed themselves with their own smartphone. We wrote a guideline for that.

In post production we did some of the illustrations inhouse and others with the great illustrator Susanne Asheuer from Berlin. The animation and sound design of all videos was done by Karacho with Adobe After Effects, Illustrator, Audition and Premiere Pro.

For some online e-learning courses we did seeding and social media advertising. We placed the trailer as video ad on Facebook, Youtube, Twitter and Linked-in. The courses got featured in the Iversity newsletter and on the homepage of Iversity. We are able to produce videos for all e-learning plattforms, like for example edX, Coursera, Udacity, FutureLearn, Alison.
