Creation of videos is one of the many ways faculty and teachers have had to cope with the limitations of teaching chemistry laboratory at this time of COVID-19 restrictions. In this communication, I describe ideas for videos generated by students in a class I taught entitled "Teaching of Biology". The students were required to interview different faculty about a course they had previously taken and develop two course improvements to add value to that class. In one of our class discussions, the students initially suggested the idea of creating short videos of laboratory activities for introductory chemistry. This was well before our restrictions to be on campus. Then, as part of their thought process for course improvements in chemistry, several students proposed additional types of videos that they felt would add value to chemistry classes based on their experiences as students in those courses. In this work, I provide the specific suggestions of the students and discuss the value of incorporating students' ideas for videos in chemistry lecture and laboratory classes.
