It was a real privilege today to be able to speak to 150 conference attendees at Europe’s largest Learning Technologies conference on the subject of Video in Learning.
It was a very quick overview on some of the practical aspects of producing video for learning.
There is a link to the presentation I gave here and some of the resources I talk about below…
At some point, I hope to be able to stream the actual presentation video itself.
