Video Recipes

Video Recipe

Navigating the Internet I found an interesting site, where video streaming is used to present a couple of Mexican-Amercian recipes (Red Kidney beans and rice and Chicken and rice).

Independently from the content and its design, which by the way are good, the underlying pedagogical principles deserved to be commented. It is a good example of instructional design where a talking head explains by doing. Besides watchinge the video, tue users are able, as well, to glimpse some pictures, read the ingredients and the directions, click a couple of links, print the text-based recipe, e-mail it or add it to, what they called, a Recipe Box.

The video is divided in three chunks so the viewer can watch the first part, read the ingredients, watch the second part, read the directions and at the end, see the final video. It is definitively an exquisite use of video streaming.

I was skimming some of the articles in the click and go video project website, and I found particularly interesting two called Developing a streaming Video Methodology and Click and Go Video, both by Jim Strom, Clive Young and Mireia Asensio. (more…)

Videoconferencing essay

Filed under: Academic Life, Readings, Research, Video — armartinell @ 4:33 pm


I am writing an essay of videoconferencing in networked learning, and I have been looking for papers and other sources to document what I say. I found in the Bibliography of one of Mike O’Donoghue’s papers an interesting source called Videoconferencing: active reflection on new technologies when lecturing. I look it up in Google and I found it in a reliable resource database, where I also found another paper called Videoconferencing: a collaborative experiment.

In the first paper, I found very interesting, how the videoconferences were operatively managed by means of an etiquette, and how logistic and budget defined the use of videoconferences in these Scottish HE sites.
