Higher education institutions are moving to exploit information and communication technologies by increasing the use of videos both online and in class. This is led, by definition, by ‘early adopters’ and most of the research into this process reflects this. Increasingly, institutions are making strategic decisions to move courses online however, some teachers involved are not well equipped to transition. The barriers are reported to be time constraints and a lack of familiarity with the technology to make video. Also, there is a fear of the ‘presented self’ where teachers may initially resent the idea of being recorded. This paper is the result of an action research process where researchers looked at teachers’ embedded practices to discover hidden skillsets and content. Teachers who were intimidated by moving from the presentation style lecture to video based one, are focused on the process and sometimes do not secure the integrity of the learning. This paper sets out the methods used to assist teachers take the maximum benefit of their existing content as presentation style lectures and utilize them for video recording suitable for both flipped and online classes. A central theme is removing the fear of the presented self and enabling participation in creating active learning environments. This unlocks the potential for whole institutions to make course and department wide moves towards better classroom practice and e-learning opportunities
