Video Project

Due 11/30/07 @ 11:59pm


Overview:

Video can be a powerful resource in the classroom and in a corporate setting. As we discussed in class on Tuesday 11/13/07, in the classroom teachers can use video to expand on a specific lesson and in business video can be used for training and marketing purposes. As discussed in your article and in our discussion on digital video, we realize, advances in computers and the Internet have made it possible for almost anyone to produce and share their own video creations. Today's computers come with easy to use free video editing software pre-installed (iMovie for Macintosh, MovieMaker for Windows), and sites such as YouTube, TeacherTube, Google, Yahoo, MySpace and Facebook to name a few have generated an explosion of video content accessible to people all over the world.

Assignment:

For this assignment, you will create your own short video (1—3 min) introducing and explaining a specific emerging technology. Use iMovie or MovieMaker software to create and/or edit your video. The video may be used within the context of a larger learning activity, but the video should be designed to an objective. In this video your general goal is to introduce a technology. Your objective will be deciding what you want your audience to know after they have viewed your video.

Use the following table to guide you through the process for creating your video.

Preproduction

Production

Post Production

•Research and plan the project
•Gather and plan assets (video clips, still images, sound effects, music, etc.)
•Record narration
•Create assets, if necessary (record original video)
• Assemble assets in iMovie or MovieMaker
•Add Music
•Add Titles
•Add Transitions
•Add Special Effects (if necessary)
•Create final output
•Export your project as a compressed file.
•Upload your video to YouTube
•Submit your video URL to wikispace provided
•Embed your video in your blogs
•Answer questions in your blogs on specifics of video

YouTube:

Once you have created an account on YouTube, upload your video. Add tags of your choice to the video and the tag EIT159.

Blog:

After uploading and embedding your video in your blogs you will post the following blog entry before or after the video. This entry will include:
• Type of technology you are focusing on.
• What it is and can be used for in a corporate or classroom setting?
• Who is your audience (Students/Employees)?
• What is the goal and objective of the video?

File Management:

Gather all assets (images, audio, and video clips) in a single folder named Video Project and keep files organized in that special folder just for your video project.

Audio/Video Equipment:

If you wish to record your own video clips or take original digital photos, you may check-out a digital camera or digital camcorder from the IRTS curriculum lab (SEC 222). Of course, you can use your own digital camera to take pictures or perhaps even record short video clips. Many digital cameras have this feature (to record video with or without audio). Your cell phone might even record pictures or video. It's a good idea to verify that you know how to transfer pictures and video from your device to the computer before you spend too much time capturing your original footage. Take a moment to test this process and confirm it works for you.

Copyright:

You will be expected to adhere to Copyright law and fair use guidelines. As you search for media, seek out the license agreement or terms of use for any media that you download to use in your project. Any image, audio or video clip taken from a source other than your own is subject to the copyright of its owner.

Exporting & Submitting:

When you are finished editing your video project in iMovie or MovieMaker, you must properly export your video as a standalone QuickTime Movie (.mov file) or Windows Media Video (.wmv file). Follow the directions provided in the iMovie or Windows MovieMaker outline. This is a critical step in successfully completing your project--it must be exported properly in order to be submitted correctly. Upload your video to YouTube, copy and paste URL to the wiki provided for the submission of this assignment and Embed your video on your blogs.

Requirements:

• The video supports a goal and objective for your audience.
• The aim of the video is to introduce and explain a specific emerging technology.
• Duration of video is between 1 and 3 minutes (you will not lose points if the video is longer, but you will loose points for a video shorter than a minute.)
• Content of your video is age-appropriate, accurate, and non-biased.
• The video is a compilation of short video clips and/or images.
• Editing is evident by use of the following elements: Transitions, titles, and audio (narration, music or sound effects).
• Sounds, transitions and special effects must complement the video's content. These should enhance and support the content, not detract from it.
• Apply the principles of Contrast, Alignment, Repetition, and Proximity (C.A.R.P.). Visual design includes choices about colors, fonts, graphics, transitions, and any other visual element.
• Copyright-protected materials (basically anything other than your own original work) are used in accordance with their individual licensing terms or conditions, and these materials are given attribution by citing their source (e.g., within closing credits).
• Overall quality of video is sufficient to support objective (quality and clarity of images, video and sounds)
• Video has been uploaded to YouTube with tags, including EIT159
• URL is posted on Wikispace provided
• Video is embedded in blog
• The following questions are answered on the blog:
Type of technology
What it is and can be used for
Who is your audience (Students/Employees)?
What is the goal and objective of the video?

Video Project

Due 11/30/07 @ 11:59pm


Overview:

Video can be a powerful resource in the classroom and in a corporate setting. As we discussed in class on Tuesday 11/13/07, in the classroom teachers can use video to expand on a specific lesson and in business video can be used for training and marketing purposes. As discussed in your article and in our discussion on digital video, we realize, advances in computers and the Internet have made it possible for almost anyone to produce and share their own video creations. Today's computers come with easy to use free video editing software pre-installed (iMovie for Macintosh, MovieMaker for Windows), and sites such as YouTube, TeacherTube, Google, Yahoo, MySpace and Facebook to name a few have generated an explosion of video content accessible to people all over the world.

Assignment:

For this assignment, you will create your own short video (1—3 min) introducing and explaining a specific emerging technology. Use iMovie or MovieMaker software to create and/or edit your video. The video may be used within the context of a larger learning activity, but the video should be designed to an objective. In this video your general goal is to introduce a technology. Your objective will be deciding what you want your audience to know after they have viewed your video.

Use the following table to guide you through the process for creating your video.

Preproduction

Production

Post Production

•Research and plan the project
•Gather and plan assets (video clips, still images, sound effects, music, etc.)
•Record narration
•Create assets, if necessary (record original video)
• Assemble assets in iMovie or MovieMaker
•Add Music
•Add Titles
•Add Transitions
•Add Special Effects (if necessary)
•Create final output
•Export your project as a compressed file.
•Upload your video to YouTube
•Submit your video URL to wikispace provided
•Embed your video in your blogs
•Answer questions in your blogs on specifics of video

YouTube:

Once you have created an account on YouTube, upload your video. Add tags of your choice to the video and the tag EIT159.

Blog:

After uploading and embedding your video in your blogs you will post the following blog entry before or after the video. This entry will include:
• Type of technology you are focusing on.
• What it is and can be used for in a corporate or classroom setting?
• Who is your audience (Students/Employees)?
• What is the goal and objective of the video?

File Management:

Gather all assets (images, audio, and video clips) in a single folder named Video Project and keep files organized in that special folder just for your video project.

Audio/Video Equipment:

If you wish to record your own video clips or take original digital photos, you may check-out a digital camera or digital camcorder from the IRTS curriculum lab (SEC 222). Of course, you can use your own digital camera to take pictures or perhaps even record short video clips. Many digital cameras have this feature (to record video with or without audio). Your cell phone might even record pictures or video. It's a good idea to verify that you know how to transfer pictures and video from your device to the computer before you spend too much time capturing your original footage. Take a moment to test this process and confirm it works for you.

Copyright:

You will be expected to adhere to Copyright law and fair use guidelines. As you search for media, seek out the license agreement or terms of use for any media that you download to use in your project. Any image, audio or video clip taken from a source other than your own is subject to the copyright of its owner.
