Leaving the Videotape World


We experimented last semester with using a webcam to record student simulations and it was very well received by both the professor and the students.

Next is to transition from recording on videotape for school events.  This week used a digital videocam to record a faculty interview, captured it onto a computer and rendered as as .wmv so that it could uploaded to our website.  Now instead of going to the faculty room to watch a videotape on a TV/VCR, faculty can watch the video on their laptops at their leisure.

Here are the reactions so far:

  • Great idea!!!!!!
  • How cool is that!!!

Next step is recording 2 events this week.  Plans are in the works for new recording equipment and procedures….
