Video Blog

Filed under: Case Studies, Research, Video — armartinell @ 5:35 pm

In the task of developing a vlog for delivering video summaries for one of my case studies, I went over two different methodologies to achieve my goal.
First of all, I recorded a talking head, and I created a PowerPoint presentation, then I used Camtasia Studio to integrate and synchronize the slides with the video. At that point everything was pretty straightforward. (more…)

Books I have to get

Filed under: Readings — armartinell @ 11:40 am

Besides, Mayer’s and Mason’s, which I have already gone into, I have just found two books that I definitively have to read.

After reading Robin Mason’s Using Communications Media in Open and Flexible Learning, I started to browse for more Open and flexible learning books and I came across a very interesting book (according to its title, indeed) called Designing Educational Video and Multimedia for Open and Distance Learning by Jack Koumi (publishing date: May 2006).

Also after getting Mayer’s Multimedia Learning from the library, I felt like buying my own copy and while browsing the web I found The Cambridge Handbook of Multimedia Learning a newer book of Mayer’s.

Again the concept of opportunistic learning has helped me finding interesting things.

Update notice 10.04.2006
I have just received my copy of one of those two must-have books.
