I am keen to explore the use of video more for both studying and practising public relations. So I am looking to buy a video camera for my birthday next Friday (I am so sad I always link something I want for work to a gift to myself – last year my VAIO PC, Christmas my VAIO laptop…)
So I was interested to receive a link from Sheila Rainger at RAC Foundation about a video of her boss, Edmund King introducing Make Roads Safe 2007 at Google Video. The road noise is a little distracting, but I applaud the attempt to test out a new medium.
Sheila tells me she is open to suggestions on how they can promote video – this one is on their homepage and they will link on a new blog they are establishing. She’s also going to post it to friction.tv. But if you have any further suggestions, comment here and I’ll let Sheila know.
Also if you have any experience of creating videos – either regarding cameras or uploading etc, your advice would be appreciated. I hate the term webinar, but feel that being able to offer “homemade” video to students – whether interviews, case studies or online tutorials – would be really useful addition to my www.greenbanana.biz site. We could also develop an archive from MIPAA workshops, which would be useful for those unable to attend.
Again, any knowledge or views on video in education, webinars and technology to deliver them – please comment here.
