Your New Collaborative Video

Jump to: navigation, search


Hey! I see you've used the new collaborative video feature on your wiki. How did you enjoy using it? Have you thought of maybe adding it on to your favorite articles? Are hoping students add on media clips to the Video?

Let me know, Avigail

Hi Avigail,

Thanks for the interest; some things like the termites just demand a video. When appropriate I certainly intend for my students to add clips. However because I don't want to add another layer of tech onto a course that is not in any way a computer science course.

I have a hard time using the Video editor; it's not intuitive to me; I may get to it once the course ends. I have used the MS movie maker software and it works well for me. Dmccabe 18:47, 14 February 2008 (CET)

Hi Declan,

Interesting feedback ~ certainly I understand that when you keep adding 'tech' to the activities, there's a point that people feel overloaded.

Regarding the video, I've used MovieMaker, and it's a real dog...and memory hog...would be nice to try something different.

Hi Randy, I have a little puredigital video camera with the usb connection on the side; I find that I can bypass the video editor and upload short clips directly and that works for me. What other video editors have you tried thet you might recomend?Dmccabe 17:11, 15 February 2008 (CET)

I just got my hands on Pinnacle. Still a memory hog, but easier to use than MovieMaker. I'm test running it for work. So far so good. If interested I'll give you more feedback after some use.Dmccabe 03:16, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi again Avigail,

we use clips when they best illustratean idea; like in the Cloud creations for example. I have not considered adding outside media, but I rule nothing out :) It all comes down to time.Dmccabe 03:22, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
