4 Tips for Improved Video in eLearning
MARCH 25, 2016
It wasn’t until I was older, playing with more professional toys, that I realized that you often get what you pay for in terms of recording devices. Since I first owned an iPod, I’ve realized how much more space video files take up when compared to audio. Video has a growing presence in eLearning courses, and that’s for good reason. Easy, safe, and uniform. .

When you consider the ubiquity of the iPod and the number of iPhone and MacBook users out there, this is providing Apple with a host of new potential customers for their other products. It’s only fair to also say that 55% of prospective and actual users stated that they regarded the iPad as an expensive toy.

I wrote about trying to build learning into work when you're just too busy doing work. This go-round, I'm at the other end of things: in a much-needed lull between projects, taking a breather. Opening my eyes, looking around, and seeing what I can see. This reminds me how much I like to make stuff.

He concluded with a reference to Apple's new toy, suggesting that the iPad will do to educational resources what the iPod did to popular music. Time to reflect on the Commonwealth of Learning (CoL) workshop on Open Educational Resources, which was held in Windhoek, Namibia this week.

Your post is a valuable reminder that the current focus should be on utilising the mobile technologies which have become so widespread, such as laptops, cellphones and iPods rather than getting carried away with virtual environments (which only the highest-end computers with amazing graphics cards can even access!) While we may be pushing virtual worlds more in the UK, for every e-learning customer genuinely interested in this area, there are still ten more who want mobile learning with PDAs, cellphones and iPods, yet this still can’t be delivered as effectively as we would like.
