e-learning week

31 March, 2008

it’s here again. We are supposed to put all the lectures for this online, using a pretty usless tool that allows one to record a very low-resolution video of your face, voice-over, and synchronise with your powerpoint slides (or perhaps some other slide format is supported too, I didn’t investigate). The thing runs on Windows only, and the university pays to the company that developed that oh so wonderful product quite a bit, I gather…

As I can’t skip it this time (I was lucky to schedule midterms precisely for such a week last year :)) I’ll just shoot a video of myself giving lecture at a whiteboard, as I did 2 years ago

PS. And while I was shooting the video using iSight camera and Powerbook G4, the harddisk in the latter just died…
