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.

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.

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.

The term was invented by Darcy DiNucci in 1999 and later popularized by Tim O'Reilly and Dale Dougherty at the O'Reilly Media Web 2.0 Conference in late 2004. The Web 2.0 framework specifies only the design and use of websites and does not place any technical demands or specifications on designers. History Web 1.0 Some Web 2.0 capabilities were present in the days of Web 1.0, but were implemented differently. Flew believed these factors formed the trends that resulted in the onset of the Web 2.0 "craze". Characteristics Web 2.0
Must Have Resources on Teaching Online Safety Internet has become an integral part of our students learning. They use it for searching, connecting, socializing, and communicating.There is no way we can control what our students are doing online no matter how hard we try. It is funny when you enter a school and find that certain websites ( YouTube for instance ) is banned there. Why would students access YouTube through their schools desktops while they have their own mobile gadgets to use whenever and wherever they want. This is a flawed strategy and , unfortunately, is not how we can keep our students from harms way. Students digital safety is not dependent on a strict ban of certain websites, it is rather an outcome of a fruitful and collaborative awareness process in which students take part in learning how to : Teaching online safety is not an easy task but it is not impossible. 1- Free Tools and Resources about Internet Safety 2- Google Good to Know: Everything you Need to Know about Staying Safe 8- The Core Rules of Netiquette
Five Possibilities for the Future of Facebook - PCWorld Now that Facebook has hit the 300 million members mark and shown that its free service can rope in dough, we have to wonder what will happen to the social networking giant ten years down the road. Here are five possibilities for the future of Facebook. Evolved Gaming Interactivity Facebook has already embraced the allure of interactive gaming -- almost to the point of obnoxious saturation. More Aggressive Advertising Facebook reached "cash flow positive" status through its advertising. A Pointless Offshoot Imagine a Facebook phone, a Facebook OS, or a Facebook retail store. A Busy Catch-All Facebook does a great job streaming friend status and posted items such as videos and hilarious news articles (a recent item a friend posted about girls using Facebook instead of an emergency phone number struck me as culturally telling). A Brick Wall Social networking will eventually plateau, skid, and fall off a cliff.
2013-14 DE CCSS Leadership Academy - home FT Magazine - Facebook’s grand plan for the future Mark Zuckerberg is pacing before a crowd in Facebook’s Palo Alto, California, cafeteria just before lunch on a Wednesday in November. Fit and jovial, with pale skin and curly brown hair, his boyish face gives away his 26 years. “Zuck”, as friends call him, is wearing what he always wears: a grey T-shirt with an embroidered Facebook logo, blue jeans and tennis shoes. With this perennially casual demeanour, he is showing off new technologies to a few hundred employees, partners and the press. “It’s a good day to launch some stuff,” he says with a laugh. With Deals, smartphone users who download Facebook’s application can “check in” to a physical location, such as their local coffee shop, and get a little reward. During his presentation, Zuckerberg uses words such as “revolution” and “disruption”. After the public presentation I join Zuckerberg and a couple of bloggers in a glass-walled conference room in the middle of Facebook’s offices. It is a global phenomenon. B.J.
