In the flipped classroom model, pre-class learning materials facilitate knowledge acquisition by students so they will be ready for the application of such knowledge in class. Multimedia content possesses certain advantages over traditional text-based reading materials in enabling a more engaging pre-class learning experience.
Hence, we introduce a six-step model to guide you through the production and application of instructional videos for use in the flipped classroom approach.

The Six-step Model

Step 1

Design Learning Experience

Step 2

Planning the Instructional Video

Step 3

Lay Out Your Production Plan

Step 4

Rolling the Camera

Step 5

Post-Production & Contingencies

Step 6

Delivery of Online Learning

Besides providing a standalone instructional video online, an integrated learning path can be built within a learning management system (LMS) with pre-class learning materials and assessment tasks. Pre- and post- quizzes are highly effective tools to gauge achievement of lower level cognitive learning outcomes, from individual students to the entire class. Teaching and learning support units within your institution can be the resource for specific assistance in the construction of integrated learning paths within a LMS.

One can see implementation of the flipped classroom approach as a spectrum - from partly-flipped to completely flipped. Flipping even just one class will provide practitioners with first-hand knowledge of the approach as well as the developing essential skills for converting subsequent classes.  There is no need to flip classes all at once. Picking just one class to flip will be sufficient to experience the entire process and develop skills to plan additional flipped classes with increasingly deeper levels of adaptation.
