CIL2006, Day 2: My Morning Stroll to the Conference



walking to the conferenceIn my continued experiment with the Treo’s video capabilities, I created a video of my morning walk to the conference. Hope you enjoy it!

I’m deciding that Treo video works great to capture snippets of video, useful for things like video blogs (ie., throwaway video content like what I’ve been making). And it’s useful to quickly capture a thought, an action, etc.

But is it useful for a library? That depends. What is it you plan to do with the video? If you’re planning on using the Treo to film your online bibliographic instruction class, I’d say you’re nuts! You probbaly need better-quality video for that (or even screencasting software like Camptasia, depending on what it is your’e doing).

But how about for teens capturing a library event? Or librarians doing something a little more informal? Then yes, mobile video works well for that.

More later…

    How about to show where the paper is and how to re-fill the printer at a public printing station. It could come up with the “out-of-paper” message on the pc that releases the print jobs…

    or

    a short walk-along clip could be a directionnal “getting to the genealogy room in the main library” when we promote it on the website
