One of the best ways to use video is to prerecord lectures and have your student's watch them before class so you'll have more time for class activities and discussions.  It’s best to create several short 5-15 minute recordings and add quiz questions to reinforce key points instead of one long lecture.  
Here are a few benefits of video recording your lectures:
  • More time for class activities and discussions
  • More time to help students in class 
  • Increased understanding of difficult concepts 
  • Less emails from students
  • Higher student test scores
