Back in the ‘speaking saddle’…

… that’s right folks, despite being a dreaded vendor, I have recently spoken at the UCISA Using Social Media For Training event at the kind invitation of the lovely Gillian Fielding. Gillian and I met several months ago and discussed potential subjects and settling upon me looking at the use of YouTube, whilst other facilitators delved into other areas. As always, I’d like to share my ‘take aways’ from the sessions that I attended, as well as the content from within my session.

On the bus….

… off the bus, is probably how I would describe the last few months, in relation to a few speaking gigs I’d had lined up. Between August and December of last year I was fortunate enough have been asked to speak at a number of events in 2012 on the subjects of: Getting started with mobile learning Getting the most from the Learning Technologies you already have Needless to say, I was very excited at the prospect of this and started to do some tentative prep work.

…. when I stumbled upon the ‘edit video detail’ toolbar at the top of the page. Now I had seen this previously and had chosen to ignore it as my video editing is done in either Flipshare or more recently in Windows Movie Maker. What an oversight on my behalf!!! Within the video editing options there is an option to add annotations. Now this in itself is nothing startling as many video editing tools allow you to annotate on top of the video footage, but what this allows you to do is to add a ‘spotlight’ on top of anything that is being shown in the YouTube...

Guess who’s back, back again…

Craigy’s back, tell a friend (if you’re not an Eminem fan, then this blog title was wasted on you!) As you will have spotted by now, I have been absent from my Blog for a couple of weeks, admittedly some of that absence has been down to the fact that I have been moving to this self-hosted WP site, which I am hoping will ‘futureproof’ some of the ideas that I want to take forward and also to be honest, it’s been Christmas and I’ve been a bit lazy!!! But we’re half way through January so it’s about time I pulled my finger out and started putting...
