Online Resource - Video of the workshop outline and additional  supporting materials that can be used to teach these skills to students.


  • There were some technical issues. It took quite a long time to upload the videos ready for playback to the students and getting the video player to work was tricky. VLC seemed to be the best option.
  • The worst tech problems happened in the final evaluation workshop while using the large touch screens in the classrooms at High Holborn. The touch screen proved harder to use when uploading a lot of video.


  • A solution to this would be developing some sort of training or guidance around technical equipment, including some basic information about transferring videos from Flip cameras or mobile phones to the computer and guidance around using video players such as VLC, for example how to adjust volume and rotate portrait videos

Lessons learned:  

1. No work has been done on uploading videos to YouTube or Vimeo  and then embedding in blogs or websites. It would be useful To develop guidance on this. 

2. The videos were unedited, but video editing skills would be a useful skill to develop as well
