This site was designed to help teachers and faculty with tips, tutorials and information regarding teaching with technology in a classroom or online.
Everyone loves to take pictures and video, but very few people know how to edit or modify their digital images once they have captured it. As part of a project at work I was asked to develop a couple of classes on video editing software.
We decided to focus on software that was available for free to students and faculty. Windows Movie Maker comes free on Windows based PC's. iMovie comes as part of the iLife software available on most Mac's. So those were the two software products we focused on originally.
Later we had faculty ask us about screen capture software. Several applications are available that allow you to capture your screen. Camtasia was the first one that came to my mind as I created training videos with this software at Datastream Systems before I came to Clemson. So we developed a class on this software and then decided to also create a class that uses a free screen capture tool. Techsmith the creator's of Camtasia were in the process of creating a new product and had created Project Jing to test the new product. Jing allows users to create screen capture images and videos of their computer screen and share them across the web for free.
I created this site to share resources I have found for capturing video. This site incorporates links to websites that discuss video capture techniques, free software to capture video into your computer, hardware that can be used to capture video, screen capture software, video conversion software and other resources. I encourage you to check out my Delicious site to find additional resources that I have bookmarked regarding video, free video tools, podcasting, vodcasting, free audio tools, etc.
