Create the Most Effective Course Intro Video
An introduction to your online course is an essential and valuable piece to aid in the success of your students. As with a face-to-face class, its purpose is to supply the students with information necessary for understanding the course and its objectives. SHSU Online encourages our online faculty to prepare and record an introductory video for their course. And we are here to help! Please contact Mike Power at 936-294-2368 to discuss and set up a time to record your introduction today.

Creative Tools at Your Fingertips
