Quick Links

 
  • To register for the "Video Tools and Techniques for Educators--(Including edTPA Video)" workshop, please visit: http://education.illinoisstate.edu/edtech/workshops/.  Try not to let too much time pass between taking the training and working on your videos.  As with any learning, the knowledge and skills acquired during the workshop will be forgotten if not applied soon after taking the training.  Please also note that the scheduling system used for workshop registration only allows individuals to register for sessions that take place during the next 60 days.  Rest assured, however, that you will eventually be able to register for workshops scheduled later in the semester as soon as their dates fall inside the 60 day window.
  • For a breakdown (by program) of the required number, duration, and content of edTPA videos that are to be submitted, please see the document entitled "edTPA Video Guidelines."  (Since this is a .PDF file, you will need a program like Adobe Reader to access its contents.)
  • For the most up-to-date information on allowable video file formats/sizes that may be uploaded to the edTPA video web site, please see the document entitled "Recommended Video Formats and Settings."  (Since this is a .PDF file, you will need a program like Adobe Reader to access its contents.)
