"No green screens and expensive software here in Karen Costa's inspiring new book; instead, this is a hands-on, let's-go practical guide to using the tools you already have (webcam or phone) so that you can humanize your courses with video. As Karen's examples show, even just a minute or two of video can make a big impact. So if you're looking for creative new ways to connect with your students, you've come to the right book. Highly recommended for teachers and instructional designers in all fields. Bravo, Karen!"
