This session will introduce CSU faculty and staff to easy video production using the tiny Flipcam video recorder and the included Flipshare editing software. This remarkable camera records HD-quality video on internal solid state memory so no tape is required. Once acquired, the video can be quickly downloaded into any computer using the USB port built into the camera. The footage can then be edited using the Flipshare software which downloads once the camera is plugged in. Edited videos can then be uploaded to Internet sites such a YouTube with a single click. Attend this session and see a demonstration of this powerful communication tool for recording interviews, documenting field trips, and bringing the outside world into the classroom.
Goals and Target Audience:
Attendees will learn how easy it is to capture quality audio and video with the Flipcam, as long as certain basic production requirements are met. They will also see how easy it is to edit captured footage, add titles and music, and then upload the results to the Internet. Target audience: CSU staff and faculty who would like to use video as teaching tool in the classroom and document student activities in the field. It will also demonstrate the ease of posting videos online.
