The use of short video clips in the online environment provides 'real-world' examples which can enrich student learning in many disciplines. The Learning Technology Center (LTC) supports Pinnacle Studio 12 for creating digital video clips for delivery through D2L. The LTC offers a 2-hour workshop for instructors which will examine pedagogical best practices for the use of digital video from existing sources. The workshop will also address the technical requirements and limitations of the medium. Participants gain hands-on experience capturing a video clip, rendering it for use on the web, and uploading it to D2L. Although a PC Windows environment is required to digitize and render digital video clip using Pinnacle Studio 12, the final output will be a Flash file which may be viewed by students using either a Mac or a PC.
Once you have attended the workshop, you may access a step-by-step helpsheet for creating digitizing and rendering digital video clip using Pinnacle Studio 12 is available in the D2L course site called “Digital Video Resources.” Please register for the "Digitizing video content for online and blended courses" workshop at: http://LTCworkshops.uwm.edu
