Day Three: Digital Story telling and Video lectures

October 21, 2015

Today we looked at how libraries can use open source software to design digital stories and short videos.

Digital stories are interactive and often presented in compelling and emotionally engaging formats.

Information Literacy programmes can also be made more interactive by embedding video clips.

What about online tutorials? Online courses? While designing courses, it is important to take into consideration the learners’ preferences.

Learners need to be engaged and one of the ways is to use interactive media.

    As the saying goes “a picture speaks for a thousand words”. Today’s learning has armed we librarians with knowledge of using pictures/video to explain/talk of a matter that would have taken hours, to just a mere minutes without losing any part being expressed informs of digital and video. We can apply these knowledge in documenting our university/library events by converting the traditional photos of the event or written speeches into video clips. Please let’s put into practise what we have been introduced to since the start of the workshop. I thank the organisers especially Agnes for always willingly sharing her knowledge with others.

      It is not enough to attend workshops, acquire knowledge and skills but most important is how you use the acquired skills. Well noted Philliam.

    videography was more practical and challenging but i managed to learn tips on how a video can be edited and how it can be produced and i have come to realize that it is going to help me make money in future such that i can learn more.
