Do Mobile Ed instructors use a teleprompter or do they record as they go and then their content gets transcribed?

Thanks!

Probably both (the textbooks clearly are transcribed from the videos) but you'll probably want to ask this in the mobile Ed subforum, where @Miles Custis has a better chance to see it and answer.

I think they are transcribed after the fact, because yo can often find corrective type statements that most certainly would not have been in the original script.

But I do think they are following at least an outline on teleprompter, if not a heavy outline. It seems to me that some of them are reading from something rather than lecturing from their heads.

Just my 2 cents.

I believe the same, but the Israelology course definitely looks like Mr. Arnold is reading his manuscript. I’m just curious.  Some lady that lectures at the gospel coalition showed a teleprompter and stated it made it easier for her to teach.  So I was just wondering what’s going on behind the scenes.

Maybe something that the mobile Ed team should produce (maybe that's already existing in those Faithlife videos).

I responded in the Mobile Ed forum, but I'll respond here as well.

Both! Our speakers do have a teleprompter that they are looking at while they record, but we also get their recorded content transcribed. Speakers vary on how much text they have displayed on the teleprompter. Most of them have slides with just their main bullet points or an outline of what they what to cover with only quotes written out.

Some do have everything scripted out for the teleprompter, but we still get their content transcribed. Even when people have things scripted out they may rephrase things or skip or add something on the fly, and we want out transcripts to accurately convey what they speaker actually, not just want they planned to say. We also have a team of editors and proofreaders that work on the transcripts to ensure that they are accurate and conform to our editorial style guide.

I appreciate the great work on the transcript, Miles.  I read the transcript; I do not partake of the videos.  Then I check out the readings.
