Music Licensing

TechSmith Camtasia

While licensing helps protect people’s property (such as music), it can also be a nuisance to try and navigate. Most music is protected under a license of some sort, especially the good stuff, which makes it difficult to find cheap, quality music that you can use in your videos. Music is an integral part to screencasting, so it’s necessary to identify and understand the different music licensing options that can be used. Camtasia Music Library.

Music is Becoming Social Again

During yesterday's "Ukulele Learning" session my copresenter Shawn Rosler showed a chart with whole, quarter, and eighth notes and asked who had ever struggled to learn music this way. One of the takeways I hope participants found is that music can is fun, especially when shared. Not all that many years ago, before Mr. Edison invented his wax cylinder, a music was something you had to go somewhere to hear unless you played an instrument yourself.

The music is in the musician

Learning with 'e's

On the occasion of his keynote speech at the 2015 BETT Show , this was abundantly clear. One of his most memorable one liners was about teachers using technology, where he said: ''The music is in the musician, not the instrument.'', and he was also caught channeling Marshall McLuhan with his remark that ''we amplify our tools and then our tools amplify us.'' The music is in her head, and emerges through the dexterity of her hands.

Why & How to Include “Performance Notes” for Virtual Classroom Courses

InSync Training

Think about how written music works. Looking at something on a piece of paper is a FAR cry from real music, right? They include a myriad of annotations that give a musician looking at the sheet music direction on volume and tempo and repeats and mood and on and on.

ID Badges: My Experience with TIfPI’s Certification

Experiencing eLearning

I don’t have one (I have a bachelor’s of music education), so you can guess which side of the debate I’m on. Last month, I earned my badge for Instructional Design: Goal- or Problem-Based Scenarios [ID(GPS+)] from The Institute for Performance Improvement (TIfPI). The “plus” and gold color signify that this is an outstanding level badge, meaning I received an outstanding rating on at least 7 of the 9 standards. How It Works.

LMS for the Next Generation of Corporate Learners: An Insight

G-Cube

Having an LMS that is mobile-enabled aligns with students’ expectations – making the experience of learning just like other mobile-friendly aspects of their lives including banking, shopping, accessing information, listening to music and so on. As the technology around us evolves, the way we learn also evolves along with it. Learning and Technology are closely linked than ever before in schools, higher education institutions as well as corporate houses.

The power of Digital Storytelling: A corporate learning perspective

G-Cube

A digital story is a short (typically 3-5 minutes long) audio-visual presentation, created with images (real or computer-generated), photographs, background music, some text and a distinctive narrative. Sound editing software can be utilized to further enhance the audio element and insert elements like background music and other sound effects that create a greater impact. Stories are a powerful way of communication.

Can ‘Movie Based e-Learning’ be the Future of Video Based e-Learning?

G-Cube

The narrative and music within the movie play an equally important role in delivering the message. The modern world is an age of rapid growth in scientific knowledge, much of which is quickly utilized in the creation of new technology. Science and technology have also made the world very small, so that we no longer live in the confined world of our town, region, or country, isolated from what is happening in the rest of the globe.

3 Ways to Get Your Creative Mojo Going (When You Aren’t Feeling it)

Learning Rebels

As any marketer knows, music is a powerful motivator. Just take a moment and listen to the music in the different stores you frequent. Music connects the brain to emotions. Scientists have discovered that upbeat music affects the mood and a happy mood affects overall behavior. One must allow music to be a transporter. There you are, at your desk – eyes glazing over and shoulders sagging under the weight of the Friday afternoon, 2pm doldrums.

Take care not to disrupt the call with pressing wrong buttons or letting the annoying background music interrupt the call.

Tech Limits?

Clark Quinn

And I promise not to do music, architecture, finance, and everything else I’m not qualified to. A couple of times last year, firms with some exciting learning tools approached me to talk about the market. And in both cases, I had to advise them that there were some barriers they’d have to address. That was brought home to me in another conversation, and it makes me worry about the state of our industry.

Soundscapes for elearning

Sponge UK

Sound is critical in many visual mediums; modern cinema uses sound effects to create a sense of reality and music to illicit an emotional response. Appropriate Sound or music must match the tone of the learning; get it right and it will complement the experience. Sound is capable of provoking a strong memory response and this could be used to your advantage by associating a task with music which could spark the desired knowledge in the future.

Don’t Treat Beginners and Experienced Learners the Same Way

Association eLearning

Some time ago, I was cast as a chorus member in a musical. I could sing and read music, but I didn’t have any experience dancing. I wasn’t the only person with a background in music. So we had to grin and bear it every time the music director slowed down to explain where we were or what the symbols on the page meant. So, I was a beginner for one set of skills, but not for the other.

Making Sense of Research

A new iDevice is always cool, and while it’s not the first smart watch (nor was the iPhone the first smartphone, the iPad not the first tablet, nor the iPod the first music play), Apple has a way of making the experience compelling. A couple of weeks ago, I was riffing on sensors: how mobile devices are getting equipped with all sorts of new sensors and the potential for more and what they might bring.
