Videos and how-tos
See the goal project applied video recording to support the design, communication, training and self-assessment of in-company learning outcomes. Professional film producers were involved in developing methods used by “competent amateurs” in the VET sector. Sets of videos were recorded, each of them covering in-company learning outcomes for at least one VET program per partner country. 5-8 videos belonged to one set of videos. The following educational programs were recorded during 2017-2018:
- Denmark: Care helper
- Slovenia: Industrial mechanic, toolmaker
- Finland: Business & administration
- Portugal: Car mechatronic
In addition, a range of small videos were produced for other illustrations during the project.
The rrinciples for producing an amateur video are presented in a manual. This manual is elaborated for conditions with limited financial resources and producers with average technical insight. The manual contains the following aspects:
- Pedagogy and communication: identification of suitable work/learning situations for videos of in-company learning outcomes, translation of regulations into educational practice
- Technical issues: recording, edition, publication
- Ethics: data protection, personal rights, product production, recordings in sensitive situations
The manual was developed during the work process, as experiences and needs emerged. The manual is published in English.

The process of video production
As a preparation, DUAL had held introductory workshops for students to train them on how to use film technology for the production of learning videos. For this purpose, DUAL also produced an instructional video on how to use a smartphone for video-recording.
After an introduction to the students, they managed to video-record their learning outcomes themselves. Read more about the trial runs with this highly productive and successful method.
Videos Denmark: ´Care helper´, 2017
How did we do it?
The 16 in-company learning outcomes of the educational program ‘Care helpers’ (guiding regulation Jan. 2017, in Danish) were covered by 9 complex work/learning situations to be video-recorded.
- Storyboards of the first 5 videos (March 2017, in English)
These situations were recorded in March 2017 in 2 training companies: public nursing houses in Stevns Kommune and in Lejre Kommune. Authentic residents participated in the videos. The in-company trainers and their apprentices were recorded in work/learning situations, according to their daily practice. The settings were arranged with regards to the residents’ private spaces and their health conditions:
- The recordings took place in the companies’ public areas, not in the citizens’ private living rooms.
- The video shootings were recorded respecting the residents’ physical and mental capacities.
Danish videos with English subtitles
The 4-5 in-company learning outcomes per video are explained orally in the beginning of each video and visualised with “labels”.
3 of the videos are published publicly on See the goal project project’s website, while 6 of the videos are freely accessible via the VET school ZBC.
Videos Slovenia: ´Industrial mechanic´, 2017
The 7 video recordings took place in two companies. Firstly, the shooting was recorded in ETRA, a medium-sized company with 65 employees in the fields of automatics, projectation and service of electronics (summer 2017). The second company was Roboteh, a company for automatization and robotics (Nov. 2017).
The choice of the recorded work situations was done in dialogue between a VET-teacher (from the School Centre Celje) from the professional field, an expert from the company and an expert on learning outcomes from the national institute CPI. The dialogue ensured that the work situations could cover the intended learning outcomes in the educational programme for Industrial Mechanic.

A manual for video production
The manual is meant to support the producers of videos.
It contains technical and journalistic advice, as well as tips on how to identify work/learning situations to illustrate the in-company learning outcomes.
