This installment in the @5min Video "series" is on Easy Video Recording of Presentations.
Notes: These recordings were not edited in any way, just combined into one video. The ambient noise you hear in the first part of the video (classroom) is the HVAC system.
Description: Many times in the last few months I've encountered the question "How do I video record ... ?" At lot of these questions come back to recording student presentations so they can have a copy of what they did, usually for either their own use or to critique their presentation. One of the easiest ways to record these types of presentation is with a Flip Video camera. IT Services and myself are presently acquiring Flip Ultra HD cameras for several purposes, and some of these cameras will be available for loan to record content such as student presentations. With the Flip cameras you won't be able to use an external microphone or some other fancy features, but if you'd like to push a button to record, push a button to stop, and get a playable, email-able, upload-able file just by plugging in the camera's USB connection this might be something to check out.
