At the beginning of my Video on the Web presentation, I made a quick video to show how easy it is to create video content. I asked for one takeaway from Internet Librarian, and quickly interviewed three session attendees.
Here’s the final video!
David Free and I had a great time with our preconference workshop yesterday. Here’s a link to my presentation, and David Free’s post on the session (includes a link to his presentation and a link to the podcast we made). And of course, the video we made is at the top of this post.
A couple days ago, I gave a workshop on videos and videoblogging to the fine folks at the Long Island Library Resources Council. It was a fun presentation to give (see the video above)!
Here’s a list of videos we watched during the class:
And here’s a link to my presentation (in handout format). Enjoy!
Have you been thinking about diving into video? Confused about where to begin? Here are some ideas, taken from the highly creative people that work at my library.
First off, the William Allen White booktalks. What are they? From our Papercuts blog: “Traditionally, the Kansas William Allen White (WAW) book award nominee booktalks have been performed annually by Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library staff in person at local area schools. Realizing that it is impossible to reach all students in the service area in person, Sandy Lane and Robin Clark collaborated with Topeka area gifted students to produce these highly creative videos on Youtube featuring book reviews of the current William Allen White nominees for 2007-2008. The videos include interviews from “The Dr. Dyl Show”, several inanimate object reviewers, masked anonymous book reviewers, and one with exceptional headgear.” (go read the whole post!).
Here are the videos:
Two other videos from my library to point out:
You can find these videos and more on our YouTube channel. So… that’s what we’re doing with video… what are YOU doing with video?
