Week 5: A video introduction to videos and photos

In this video, I mention Jing and Camtasia–screencast softare so you can make fabulous videos like mine!  They can both be found here.


NDSU Athletics trying to go viral

Perhaps we can use our expertise to help the NDSU Athletics program launch a viral video.  They are in competition with the other schools from the Summit League; they are looking for “likes.”

Week 4: Professionalizing (plus all those other things I said week 4 would be about).

I kept this video under 10 minutes; I’m sure we are all relieved.

The Power of Words – YouTube

A friend just sent me this video.  It will be more relevant in a couple of weeks when we read about YouTube, but the video also highlights “the short form.”   I won’t spoil it, but I will say that I think the second message still needs work.  Your thoughts?

KONY 2012: Part II – Beyond Famous – YouTube

KONY 2012: Part II – Beyond Famous – YouTube.

I hope everyone interested can find 20 minutes to watch part II of Kony 2012, and then maybe a few more to respond.  They did a nice job of changing the narration style, pushed themselves into the background a more, let “on the ground” voices come through more effectively, went into specific details about what the LRA has done in the past 6 years, definitely tried to use more logos and less pathos in order to rehabilitate their ethos.  An NDSU student has contacted me looking for some advice about what she and others should do on April 20th, Cover the Night.  I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts.
