Lately in technology class we have been finishing the tutorial. First we edited the tutorial and we post it on the blog post. I am editing the same blog post and I am writing the reflection about my tutorial. In this unit we made our own tutorial that meets the criteria. Every one made different tutorial with different topic. I chose cooking because my passion is cooking and I also wanted to make a video about it.
this is my video, How to make chocolate ice cream with chocolate chip cookie!
I think that my tutorial is connected these criteria:
Before I made the tutorial I also thought I am going to meet these criteria for my tutorial.
I think I met the criteria “Step-by-step” because I was explaining the step clear and easy to understand. This helps the viewer because when you explain in hard way maybe the viewer will be confused. I also think I met “Steady camera” because I used a high quality camera and I used the tripod to make sure the camera won’t move. If the camera is wiggling to much or moving a lot, the viewer will be really hard to see. The last criteria I met was “Subtitles“. I think I met this criteria because I used a lot of subtitles on each of the clip. I think this really helps the viewer to understand better.
After I finished making the tutorial I watched other peoples tutorial. I got a lot of idea how I should make the tutorial if I do this again.
First tutorial I watched was Elena’s tutorial. Elena’s tutorial was “How to make DIY Glitter i phone charger”. By watching this video I learned that it is very easy and simple to make it and I also leaned that you can but glue (mod podge) the i phone charger,I first thought it will damage but it didn’t. Her tutorial was effective because she showed the “finished product”. I thought I should do that next time because I showed finished product but still maybe I should’ve shown it more clear.
The second tutorial I watched was Julynn’s tutorial. Julynn’s tutorial was “How to make Cup cakes” . By watching this video I leaned that you can bake the cupcake with a cup, not a muffin pan. I also leaned another way to make a cup cake. Her tutorial was effective because her tutorial was so “unique”. The topic was about cooking but, her tutorial was about 1 min and that made me watch until last. I thought I should do this next time because, my topic was cooking and it took about 5 min and maybe that made the viewer board so I thought I want to make the video more short.
The last tutorial I watched was Isabelle’s tutorial. Her tutorial was “How to wash a Guinea pig”. By watching this video I learned that you can’t wash the guinea pig’s head because it can hurt your Guinea pig. I also learned that you need to use a shampoo that is for guinea pig or rabbit, not humans because it can can really hurt your guinea pig. Her tutorial was effective because her “creativity” was so good. Her tutorial was creative because I can see that she likes guinea pig and also this is really helpful for the people who has a guinea pig. (After I watched this video I thought I really want to have a guinea pig 🙂 ) I thought I should do this next time because this is a good tutorial that can help people, although my tutorial was about cooking 🙂
Something I am still challenging is “Length of video” because, My tutorial is about cooking and cooking takes a lot of time so I thought if I could make the video shorter it will be really good video because the viewer won’t be bored.
This is my survey and you can fill these out if you have a feedback or comment 🙂
I really enjoyed this unit because I learned how to make a tutorial and I also learned some “technique” on making a video. I hope I can make a tutorial again in the future 🙂
