Palau (with Graphics)


Created as a 2019 project of the TLT Faculty Fellowship, this video is a part of Karen Kackley-Dutt’s “Biome in a Box” collection at Penn State Lehigh Valley.

What Works Well

This video allows the viewer to dive-along off the coast of Palau, observing various aspects of the coral reef and this underwater biome. Helpful numbering matches an optional in-class activity.

Level of Guidance

What does this mean?

The Level of Guidance indicates how much the creator has imbued the video with a sense of at what the viewer should be looking.

For instance, a Level 1 video would mean that the camera has been left in place while life happens around it, allowing you, as the viewer, to simply observe. A Level 2 video might incorporate subtle visual, textual or audible hints or simple transitions. A Level 3 video would rely on a handful of hints and transition. A Level 4 video would employ multiple hints and dialogue. And a Level 5 video would rely on all of the above as well as a narrative arc that pushes the viewer forward.

Another way of looking at this would be how much production went into the video if you are considering making one of your own like it.
