One of the assessment tasks in the first year subject Convergent Media Studies at UOW is to produce videos exploring some of the weekly topics. The students get to choose which topic they create videos for as part of their overall online portfolio. Here is a random smattering of some of my favourite student videos from 2015. I’ve chosen these for all sorts of reasons, but many of them are very funny and do a good job of also engaging the topic at hand. They’re also often the student’s first ever attempt at video-making.
