It is important that innovative tools that are created to enhance student learning are efficient and effective. Satisfying both criteria presents many challenges to contemporary nurse educators who wish to embark on creating alternative media to augment student nurse education. This paper is based on the author's own experience of producing a teaching video with the assistance of two multimedia students. This project was made possible by a university teaching and learning grant. Some recommendations are made arising from the 'lessons learned' from this project are highlighted. These are broadly categorised into pre-production, production and post-production considerations. In general, a good working relationship within the production team was beneficial in clarifying discrepancies between multimedia perspectives and nurse educator perspectives. It is hoped that this paper will be helpful to prospective nurse educators intending to produce similar video material. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
