Paper Cuts

The good news is you can record your own 360° videos using special cameras that are reasonably priced IMHO. All you need to record your own photo sphere is the Cardboard Camera app. My photo sphere works perfectly within my Cardboard Camera app; I wear my papery goggles and it’s like I really am surveying Sydney Harbour.

How to Record a Mobile Device Using a Camera – TechSmith Tips

Visual Lounge

This week’s TechSmith Tip focuses on using a camera to record a mobile device. “Why would you use a camera to record a mobile device at a screen recording company!?” It can be jarring for viewers to cut from a “real world” camera video with actors right into a screen video. If your camera has focus assist, use it to check your focus on the screen.

In 1917, 9-year-old Frances Griffiths and her 16-year-old cousin, Elsie Wright, borrowed Elsie’s father’s camera to take a photograph of the fairies they claimed lived down by the creek. The app allows you to upload an image or a video, which appears or plays when you scan a real-world trigger with your device’s camera, hence augmenting reality. In fact, most probably weren’t.

Photography for Elearning Developers - Understanding Exposure

The Learning Generalist

Coming to the topic of today's blogpost, you may remember that in my last blogpost I'd explained how to choose a new camera for yourself. Simply put, exposure indicates the total amount of light that your camera receives during the time that you record a photograph. Aperture Aperture on your camera lens indicates how wide your lens is open when receiving light. Simple? Simple?

Cultural hegemony and disruption

In response, Britannica has recently announced that it will no longer publish in paper format, but will now be exclusively digital.

Environments where learners are using digital tools to create or annotate outputs of their collective work are needed. Clark:  The critical perspective, I believe, is to recognize that digital technologies are a marvelous complement to our own capabilities; they do well what we don’t and vice-versa. It has limitations, and if you need to get access to sensors like cameras and GPS you’ll have to go further, but I think ‘wrapping’ mobile web for device-delivery is best first before you go the hard-coded app, and it may well be all you need.

Eventually, we were able to do away with that hardware player when QuickTime and other digital video formats became available. However, the videodiscs could provide full screen high-resolution (for its time) video, whereas the digital formats, when first introduced, could not be much bigger than postage stamp size on the screen. On the other hand, mobile devices are giving us new opportunities that we have not yet tapped into heavily, such as geo-location and internal cameras and microphones.

Understanding Video File Types: Codecs, Containers, and Outputs

While the word “compression” can conjure images of pixelated video, the process is both necessary and efficient with modern digital cameras. The codec of your original video file is often determined by your video camera or screen recorder, which you may or may not have control over in your camera settings. In January we posted about image file types.

5 Reasons to Use Gamification in E-Learning

Digital games positively influence learning achievement.

Games improve concentration.

But, the game changer — excuse the pun — of “Pokémon GO” is the way it melds the real and digital worlds. The game uses the phone’s camera and GPS in entirely new ways.

Instead, people actually meet face-to-face out in the real world.

Content Authoring with Video Interactions

Digital video has now become so commonplace that nearly everyone knows how to shoot video using a camera or a smart phone, upload it to Youtube and share it with others.
