Padhio is an online platform that connects passionate educators like you with students across the nation. The content on the platform is primarily short videos, that last 15sec to 2min. With different learning capabilities, and ever changing learning styles of students; they are always looking for better ways to understand the concepts and this is where you come in.

The length of short videos range between 15sec to 2min. Such kind of content is also popularly known as bite size content. It is usually centered around a single learning objective.

To keep it engaging. Typically, the attention span of kids (and ours too) lasts for only a couple of minutes. Hence, it’s best to keep it short, simple and to the point.

You are free to choose the style of videos as long as it explains a concept or delivers a piece of knowledge effectively. Some examples of styles are:
1. Directly speaking in front of the camera,
2. Showcasing experiments
3. Writing on white board/sheet and providing voice instructions on it
4. Animations, slideshows
5. Role Playing
We encourage experimentation and exploration of diverse creative presentations of content.
The answer is you don’t have to. The key to creating short videos that are effective and engaging is to focus on one learning objective at a time. For e.g. when explaining photosynthesis (the topic), you can have learning objectives like: knowing the reaction of photosynthesis, leaves: the place where photosynthesis occurs, do dark green leaves photosynthesize more than light green leaves and so on. You can see that photosynthesis as a topic can be broken down into multiple small independent bites. Usually, in a classroom setting, multiple bites are taught together in one go.
Padhio app for educators assists you through this process. You can access learning objectives related to a topic before you start making a video. Just tap on the create button. Select, categories, class, and topics, you wish to make your video on. On selecting topics, you can find suggestions for learning objectives related to a topic.
