DIT Spring Academy

Thanks to DIT's Kevin O' Rourke for the invite to deliver a video workshop in the 2015 Spring Academy 'Video in Education'. Friday 20th of February was my all-day video production basics for lecturers - close-mike voice recording, basic video gathering and, in the afternoon, a demonstration of some video editing basics. The participants produced two videos on the day...

Well done to all - I do hope you learned some basics and had some fun on the day! Remember that it takes time to learn your way into video-making. If you're interested, we may meet again at future events such as eLearning Summer Schools.

Mega thanks to IADT's Muiris O' Grady, as well as DIT's Kevin, Dolores, Pauline, Frances and Roy.

My takeaway from the day was the opportunity to see David Puttnam's Cisco videoconferencing system in action again - a good discussion between Schull, DIT and WIT. As Puttnam made clear on the day distance lecturing through videoconferencing and high-speed data links will form part of the future of education, but will require buy-in from institutions and faculties, as well as the 'education' of government decision-makers.
