Combined: Web 2.0 Reading + Web 2.0 Story – experiment

My (short) response to the readings this week is included in the video. This week has been very draining, and writing is difficult at the moment. However, creating other stuff is still energizing for me, and I’ve experimented with some Web 2.0 storytelling tools today, as suggested by Alan Levine (aka @cogdog) in his article. I used three different tools, used iMovie to put them all together, then uploaded to YouTube.  … I changed my mind.  The combined version on YouTube ended up fuzzy and muffled.  So I will embed each one separately below:

Jing via Screencast uploaded to YouTube

I’ve upgraded to Jing Pro (cheap – on $14.95 per year :)) so I can upload the videos to YouTube and also edit them in any video editing software.

I’m realizing that using this method, I have to keep the message very very brief and also think and type really really fast, otherwise the audience might get bored.  Maybe I should just leave it to the experts (i.e. the Q of J) 🙂

With this, I basically just wanted to see how the application works. I’m sure I’ll use it again in another project.
