ViTaL Interest Group Meeting – Discussion about ViTaL

Join the Duke Digital Initiative in the Office of Information Technology (OIT) for the next Videos in Teaching & Learning (ViTaL) interest group session:

“Discussion: ViTaL”

ViTaL was born in September 2013 as an experimental program of the Duke Digital Initiative to support self-service, peer-supported video production for teaching and learning. At the end of its second academic year, we’d like to take a look back at what we’ve tried and get your feedback on what would be useful going forward.

Date: Thursday, May 21
Time: noon – 1:00 pm
Location: RENCI Conference Room, OIT Telecommunications Building (directions)

No registration is required. Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch.

A complete schedule is available here: http://vital.oit.duke.edu/peer-support/ Meetings are open to faculty, staff, and students, although topics will focus on faculty interests.

ViTaL Interest Group Meeting – From Classroom to the Camera

Join the Duke Digital Initiative in the Office of Information Technology (OIT) for the next Videos in Teaching & Learning (ViTaL) interest group session:

“Adaptation: Taking Your Lecture from the Classroom to the Camera”
presented by Mich Donovan, Media Technology Services, Office of Information Technology and Andrea Novicki, Senior Academic Technology Consultant, Center for Instructional Technology

While a camera in the back of a classroom is one way to produce educational video it is far from the most effective. In this ViTaL session we will take a lecture that was previously only taught in the classroom and walk through the steps to transform it into a format more suitable for online learning.  From modulating content, to script-writing, to graphic design, this pre-production process will walk through everything you should consider before pressing “record.”

Date: Thursday, April 16
Time: noon – 1:00 pm
Location: RENCI Conference Room, OIT Telecommunications Building (directions)

No registration is required. Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch.

ViTaL Interest Group Meeting – Recording and Editing in Panopto

Join the Duke Digital Initiative in the Office of Information Technology (OIT) for the next Videos in Teaching & Learning (ViTaL) interest group session:

“Recording and Editing in Panopto”
presented by Paul Zizzo, Multimedia and User Services Analyst, Nicholas School

By now you should know that there are many ways to create and edit video. Panopto, freely available to the Duke community and already used by many faculty to record lectures in classrooms, is another option available to you. Paul Zizzo, multimedia and user services analyst in the Nicholas School, will help you learn what you need to get started with Panopto when you want to create video lectures outside a classroom. Just as with Screenflow and Camtasia, you can record from a webcam, capture your computer screen, and then edit your results. At the end of this session, you will better understand whether Panopto can meet your needs for creating and editing educational video!

Date: Thursday, March 19
Time: noon – 1:00 pm

“Distributing Your Videos”
presented by Todd Stabley, Senior Media Engineer, Media Technologies, OIT; Sonja Foust, Senior Program Coordinator, News & Communications; and Jolie Tingen, eLearning Applications Specialist, CIT

You know what you want to do with videos, and you’ve created them. Now how the heck do you get them to the people who need to or want to see them? Come to this session to find out about options for distributing videos to Duke classes, to the public, to groups of people you designate, and more! Included among the options are Warpwire (used from Sakai or on its own) which is as easy to use as YouTube but with the added ability to easily secure videos (and collections of videos) using Duke NetIDs and groups (such as course groups). You will also learn about making your videos available in iTunes U and iTunes and YouTube. If you have other ways to share videos, please be ready to share your ideas with the group!

Date: Thursday, February 19 (Due to weather, this has been rescheduled to March 9.)

ViTaL Interest Group Meeting – Videos and Pedagogy: Fitting it All Together

Join the Duke Digital Initiative in the Office of Information Technology (OIT) as they kick off the Videos in Teaching & Learning (ViTaL) interest group sessions for the spring 2015 semester:

“Videos and Pedagogy:  Fitting it All Together”
presented by Seth Anderson, Academic Technology Consultant, CIT

There are a number of ways that video can be employed as part of the teaching and learning process, but finding ways to integrate it into the curriculum effectively can be challenging.  We’ll talk about weaving the use of video into the course design process, and consider some examples that show how this can be done.

Discussion: “What is the Future of Video at Duke?”

At this meeting, between fall and spring semesters, we’ll talk about how we see video being used for teaching and learning at Duke over the next 1-3 years. Will more faculty want to create videos for their classes? Will we depend more on producing video with everyday devices like cell phones? What role will studios play in creating videos? Bring your questions, your speculations, your needs and wants, and let’s talk!

ViTaL Interest Group Meeting: Ten Questions to Jump-Start your Video Project

Join the Duke Digital Initiative in the Office of Information Technology (OIT) for the next Videos in Teaching & Learning (ViTaL) interest group session:

“Ten Questions to Jump-Start Your Video Project”
Presented by: Donna Mitchell, CEO & Founder, Horizon Productions

With video cameras now widely available–you probably have one on your smartphone–it would seem that making a video project is super easy. And it can be. But having a successful video that contains the right information and also connects with your audience still requires up-front planning. Donna will review a set of foundational questions that help you shape the scope of your video and ensure a strong foundation for creating it.

Rolling! Faculty enhance their video skills

Read this DukeToday article to learn how Duke Digital Initiative’s Videos in Teaching and Learning (ViTaL) program helps faculty members strengthen their video lectures.

ViTaL Interest Group Meeting: Tablet for One, Please

Join the Duke Digital Initiative in the Office of Information Technology (OIT) for the next Videos in Teaching & Learning (ViTaL) interest group session:

Tablet for One, Please
Presented by: Mich Donovan, Duke Digital Initiative

One of the ViTaL kit’s greatest strengths is also one of its weaknesses: the cords and plugs and apps allow for a great deal of versatility but can easily become overwhelming. By running Camtasia on a Tablet PC you can create a truly mobile recording studio that will cut down the clutter and complexity without a loss in production value. This presentation will show how to set your own version up, demonstrate the recording process, and finalize the lecture for your students.
