Get a video camera, a Mac and prepare to feel stupid. Get ready to leave fear behind, and discover new ways to engage students through the use of video and the power of the Web. Following this session, participants should be able to: identify projects that video can enhance; recognize limitations, and go forward; describe the basic steps in getting video on the Web; discover new ways to engage students Who should attend: creative people who like to applaud often; non-creative people who like to applaud often.
