Although the benefits of using video as a learning tool in Extension programs are well known, less is understood about effective methods for creating videos. We present a five-step procedure for developing educational videos that focus on evidence-based practices, and we provide practical examples from our use of the five steps in creating a video series for an Extension program. Through the effective development of videos, Extension professionals can organize and present information in a meaningful way.
Using video media can be a successful way to demonstrate best practices, but there has been limited guidance for how to develop such media. The five-step procedure described in this article can be adapted in a variety of Extension areas to develop educational videos that effectively illustrate evidence-based practices.
