The number of people at Nottingham (in a number of disciplines) using Camtasia to record video materials to support the teaching of their modules (etc.) is steadily increasing. We recently obtained funding to purchase another 100 Camtasia licenses (and some associated hardware), and we are currently distributing these. This funding will also support me to run up to four workshops, in order to disseminate some ideas concerning good practice, and generally to discuss some of the methodologies we have used. I expect to have support from (at least) Sally Hanford (Learning Team) and Peter Rowlett, but it is not yet certain whether these will be all-day or half-day events. I do currently expect the events to be free to attend. Whether or not we will also be able to provide a free lunch will be announced in due course!
The first two workshops are provisionally scheduled for May 27th and June 22nd, both in room C15 Pope Building, University Park Campus, University of Nottingham. Further details concerning registration and the timetable of events will be announced soon. (My current plan is to set up a mailman email mailing list for those attending the workshops.) If you are potentially interested in attending, you can email me immediately at Joel.Feinstein@nottingham.ac.uk, and I’ll email you as soon as I have more details.
