The author reflects on how video journalist training and education producer methods can inform video as a core driver for teaching excellence. The article draws on personal experience of making radio teaching resources for BBC Education. The author also has recent experience as a video journalist, and suggests that practice not theory, and the craft of making teaching resources is still alive and well today. In particular, the latest techniques used by backpack video journalists may illustrate the way forward in education video. Video is now easier to manage, is a hands-on practical activity, fits the individuality of the lecturer, and provides a personal experience for students. Online systems cannot deliver the learning experience students expect in higher education without good content. Lecturers can create their own video content with the quality to inform, educate, and engage. They will also improve their everyday teaching, because the thinking, planning, and execution are inherently educational. Future research ideas are outlined.
