One Minute Embryology - Video Preparation

This page has been prepared to support the 2016 UNSW L&T Forum presentation.

The one minute format is not designed to give a comprehensive coverage of the specific topic, just an introductory "taste" of the content including terminology and material from the teaching content. The intention is that is a stimulus to the actual class content.

In these technology rich days there are several ways in which these videos could be prepared. I will describe what was used and some simpler alternatives.

One Minute Embryology | Medicine


Photoshop is known for its utility in editing still images, it is not well known that it can also be used in video preparation and editing.

Drawback - is that it requires knowledge of this somewhat complex software.


Power point slides can be exported in movie format. This is also a more easily approached software format that many users have experienced.

Drawback - requires an understanding of Powerpoint options, slide progression and voice annotation.

Screen Capture

There are many mechanisms for now capturing as screen recording content displayed on the computer screen.

Drawback - Difficult to coordinate what is displayed within the brief timeframe and include a voice over annotation recording. May require editing and later addition of voiceover.
