I have been struggling for some time now about creating and posting videos for my students and classes, because I am a perfectionist. If I'm going to post something, I want it to be done well. When creating a video, I have yet to record myself perfectly. I constantly will make mistakes, say things twice, repeat myself, or say things twice constantly. Even if I don't make a mistake, my speech is so littered with "um" and "so" that it's embarrassing counting how many times I eliminate those.
Typically, when I create a video, it takes me 3-4 times the length of the video to edit it and do what I would consider a "great" job. For day-to-day lessons, that has proven to be unfeasible.
On the trip home today I listened to live radio and was reminded that the real world has a lot of mistakes, but that doesn't stop them. So I decided that I would start publishing more videos -- but in a raw, uneditted format. I will still produce high quality videos, especially for my physics class which is "flipped" and depends highly on video lectures for input, but I don't feel I need to do as high quality a job with my algebra videos, which aren't as highly viewed.
The same thinking, by the way, is the reason I don't blog very often -- maybe once a week. I feel like I need my entries to be deep, rich, well written entries -- but they really don't. After my Master's project is finished, I'll try to express more thoughts in rougher un-editted form. Be ye warned....
