Brett found it pretty scary when he first started keeping a blog during his study for a teaching qualification. Although he was told that it would help him to develop his online digital identity, he did not like the idea of being judged by others. Initially, he kept the blog private between him and the lecturer.
He was less dubious when he started using open resources such as Youtube videos to teach carpentry students. Even so, he had to spend quite a lot of time checking the videos to make sure that they were teaching correct techniques.
However, when he started to create videos with a colleague to teach specific skills he was very nervous that the quality would not be adequate. (Example.) It also took quite a lot of time and he did not have the skills to edit them. He was not convinced that these ‘quick and dirty’ resources would be effective for learning.
