How to Encode Video Video In fact that there are so many ways to capture and share videos in the world today, means that there are now so many different and confusing ways to encode them and convert them just so they can be viewed by others or even ourselves. So in this video, I’m going to show you what you need to know about converting and encoding videos. The first thing I’m going to cover are all the different types of video containers. Video containers are like a box that contains everything the video needs to play, such as video data, audio tracks, DVD chapters, subtitles, and things like that. Most video types are known by their container, while there’s many different types of containers, here are the most popular. AVI was created by Microsoft in 1992 and it can contain most types of video codec’s except for the more recent ones but it does not to meta data, chapters, subtitles, except when you use it with third party programs such as VLC. Mp4 is the most commonly used video format.
Limits on sharing - Google Drive There are limits to the number of people with whom you can share Google documents, files, and folders and how many people can simultaneously collaborate: Only 50 people can edit a document, spreadsheet, presentation, or drawing at the same time. Additional users will still be able to view the item, but they won't be able to edit it, and they won't be visible to others working on the item. There is also a certain limit on the number of people who can view a file at the same time. A single Google document, file, or folder can only be shared with 200 email addresses including viewers, commenters, and editors (doesn't apply to public items). If your needs exceed these limits, consider the following: When possible, choose one of the public visibility options. If you share a folder with a large number of people, you may notice a delay while permissions changes are applied to each item inside. Tips for sharing files and folders with a broad audience

Casual dining options: informative sprinkles Older | Newer By Steve Hull on Monday 14 February 2011 This screencast shows the Machine Transcription generated from a screencast which I recorded with Camtasia and uploaded to YouTube. Screencast URL: The caption track can also be downloaded as text, so even if YouTube isn't your chosen delivery channel, you could just use it as a free online Speech-toText (STT) tool... For sake of comparison I then removed both the original captions from the Camtasia project, and those transcribed by YouTube, and used Camtasia's own automatic Speech-to-Text transcription tool to make a third set of captions, which generated the following version of the same section of speech: I've had a lot of interest from workshop and online surgery attendees in production of captions and subtitles, and captions are a vital tool for providing access.

Sound Project 2014 Join us, won't you, for a national colloaboration on integrating music into the classroom culture. SP14's project mission is to produce music compilations for classroom use. Specifically, we're looking for songs from FreePlayMusic that will help students become more productive. [FPM is loaded with this kind of music, all of which is free when it's being used in an educational setting.] Music Central Links: For more info on FPM, check out the Free Play Music page or watch the FPM how-to video. Production Music Here's a two-age PDF that helps to clarify the music we're trying to find on FPM.

Social media Diagram depicting the many different types of social media There are many effects that stem from internet usage. According to Nielsen, internet users continue to spend more time with social media sites than any other type of site.

Features - The Designer's Notebook: Difficulty Modes and Dynamic Difficulty Adjustment [In Ernest Adams' latest Gamasutra column, he digs into difficulty levels in games, interestingly suggesting that player-set difficulty can, in many cases, be preferable to dynamic difficulty settings.] I just finished reading a book called Interactive Storytelling, by Andrew Glassner. While the first couple of hundred pages contain useful introductions to both storytelling and game design (for the novice, anyway), the book has some serious flaws and I can't really recommend it. But along the way, Glassner digresses into a variety of other subjects, and one of them is settable difficulty levels. This really pulled me up short when I read it. These are Glassner's complaints about settable difficulty levels. The player has to decide too early. The options are too coarse.

Web 2.0 A tag cloud (a typical Web 2.0 phenomenon in itself) presenting Web 2.0 themes Web 2.0, also called Participative (or Participatory) and Social Web, refers to World Wide Web websites that emphasize user-generated content, usability (ease of use, even by non-experts), participatory culture and interoperability (this means that a website can work well with other products, systems, and devices) for end users. The term was invented by Darcy DiNucci in 1999 and popularized several years later by Tim O'Reilly and Dale Dougherty at the O'Reilly Media Web 2.0 Conference in late 2004. Web 2.0 does not refer to an update to any technical specification, but to changes in the way Web pages are designed and used. The transition was progressive and there is no precise date on which the change occurred. History Web 1.0 A diagram showing the milestones in the development of the key layers of the Internet.

Language Arts Young, C. A. & Bush, J. (2004). Teaching the English language arts with technology: A critical approach and pedagogical framework. Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education [Online serial], 4(1). Teaching the English Language Arts With Technology: A Critical Approach and Pedagogical Framework Carl A. Jonathan Bush Western Michigan University Victor Hugo once said, "Nothing is so powerful as an idea whose time has come." In the field of English, Barton (1993) claimed that there were two broad areas of technological focus a decade ago: "the use of computers in writing instruction and the incorporation of technology into concepts and definitions of literacy" (p. 2). Absent from the literature, however, are measured directions for how teachers might develop technology literacy themselves, as well as specific plans for how they might begin to critically assess the potential that technology holds for them in enhancing their English language arts or methods instruction.
JISC Digital Media Request advice via helpdesk → Blog Older | Newer Camtasia 8 tips By Steve Hull on Tuesday 27 November 2012 Image used with permisson from Techsmith (^SH) I have recently been getting back into the groove with using Camtasia for some upcoming projects and realised that there is now a nice pool of support materials from Techsmith to help you get things done. As with most software, you get used to your own way of doing things, but this may not always be the quickest or most effective way. The following are links to resources that I think will be particularly helpful to those of you who use Camtasia. Our one day workshop Building Effective Screencasts uses Camtasia throughout the day.
