Demonstration of one way to facilitate the BEAST cognitive skills session from the SAM program.
On a whim today I decided to see what kind of video quality I could get from my bottom of the line Acer laptop, the free version of Debut Video Capture software and Windows Movie Maker that comes with Windows. It was the end of a very long day but wanted to demo something for my group so I did and recorded it.
After all of 5 minutes editing (added title, trimmed the end and added credits) I uploaded to BlipTV (also free) and within 20 minutes (during which time I had a shower and relaxed) BlipTV had not only rendered it, it was auto posted to my blog, my facebook and Twitter. Perma link here http://www.blip.tv/file/2607870 Crazy thing is it that it is also monitized. Blip.TV share 50% of ad revenue with show creators. Now if schools could do that and 50% of revenue.. well, that would be a cool business model to look at.
I also uploaded to TeacherTube and a Ning site I maintain for Aboriginal Justice Workers in BC. TeacherTube is still deciding if I can post it or not. Ning rendered and provided embeddable code in about 15 minutes.
The sounds not the best but it works. I'm kinda impressed.
