In an economy of such abundant information, the teacher who still insists upon distributing information via lecture is competing with primary sources and documents that would allow students to actively participate in ways far deeper than simply listening.

you need yourself to be aware of what is possible within the formats and technologies that students will use.
The first question is how do you grade these assignments, if they are not presented in traditional essay mode?
How difficult is it for example, to put a voice-over track or a music track onto a video, or overlay captions? If you don't know what the issues are, and the effort involved, you may be fooled into thinking students have worked hard (or not hard enough) to achieve the end product

you need to agree with students prior to submission over what the assessment criteria are, and exactly for what the marks are going to be awarded. These criteria must be equalised across all the possible submission formats.
Whatever you decide to do, it will be imperative that you ensure all assessment criteria are applied equally across all assignments, no matter what wrapper they are presented in.
Good structure, good grammar and readability (or watchability), critical analysis and evaluation, good data application and presentation, clear arguments and acknowledgement of sources - must all be evidenced in the assignment I give to my students, in no matter what format it is presented.

Once you move the transfer of information out of the classroom (through pre-class lecture videos or readings), what do you do during class time? For faculty used to spending their class time lecturing, this can be a particularly tough question.
Harvard University’s Eric Mazur, for instance, who visited Vanderbilt last year, shifted the “content delivery” portion of his courses outside of class so that he could free up class time for more meaningful interactive experiences. Much of the conversation around the flipped classroom these days focuses on lecture videos that students watch before class, but, for the early adopters, the focus was generally on how to make class time more engaging and useful.
