One of aims during my study leave is to become more confident in using video to communicate. This is a quick experiment in using the camera and app built into my PC laptop, uploading the unedited footage to my YouTube channel, and then using a converter to create some code I can embed into WordPress so it appears in the blog. Maybe. I’m also playing with Instagram and Periscope, and using the camera on my iPhone to record video (which is the simplest, as long as it’s not of me – or do I need a little stand for it to use with the front-facing camera?) How do you create simple short films to help get a point across or share an experience – and would they be useful in your context as well as or instead of word-based communications?
