    I studied with the Faculty of Medicine, University of Oulu, Finland in 2009 for my 'Master's in Circumpolar Health and Wellbeing' (MCH) which is a flexibly delivered F2F/ online postgraduate Master's Program at the Centre of Arctic Medicine, Oulu University Finland this articulated into the Masters in Public Health Tropical Medicine course (MPH-CDC) at James Cook University Townsville which I completed in 2012 majoring in Communicable Disease. I was awarded the Global Key International Honour Society for high distinction in Human Parasitology at JCU in 2011. The Master’s Program in Circumpolar Health and Well-being (MCH) is an international two-year program. Online in 2009 and 3 month f2f research in Arctic.
    Northern environments just like the tropic environments places specific demands on the delivery of health care and well-being services. The ongoing changes in climate, environment and social structures across borders have significant influence on the health and wellbeing of arctic countries and tropical residents especially Africa. The MCH and MPH- CDC has enabled me to pursue a multidisciplinary field of health and well-being. Particularly for global health in relation to the impact of vector borne disease on current human health in both the arctic and tropical areas of the world.

    ...
    Technology has opened up many platforms for a plethora of contemporary learning models which can now be implemented to support a range of learning styles. Teaching teachers these conceptual skills and new learning models allows them to be able to redesign their current delivery regardless of the current technology tool in vogue to meet a more flexible and learner centred approach not only for today’s, but for tomorrows students in TAFE. Teaching teachers to teach students the 'How' rather than the 'What' will give their learners greater sustainable skills to access information and make timely decisions swiftly and accurately throughout their professional career.
    Ostensibly, scoping and analysing courses to have a more learner-centred focus as to the way teachers can deliver their subjects will engage the motivational aspect of learners wanting to learn. Majority of these sessions are conducted F2F initially and subsequently through synchronous/ asynchronous online facilitated workshops not only for professional development activities but also to assist in designing and developing training materials to support and contribute to the online capability development network for Western Sydney Institute.

    As an instructional designer at South Western and Northern Sydney TAFE Institutes I have led and managed projects for online learningware and the use of other technologies to support the teaching and learning process. This involved leading and driving collaborative workshops to promote innovation and integration of learning technologies to assist with the professional development of teachers in order to prepare them for emerging trends and educational approaches for online teaching and learning. I have successfully designed and implemented numerous teaching guides to support the implementation of technology solutions for Community Health Services (ESD) Curriculum Centres, TAFE NSW.
    I recently have been awarded and recognised by WSI for my Innovative approaches in elearning across the Institute and have represented WSI at numerous national and international conferences and other Institutes across NSW. As a Flexible Learning Network (FLN) member and PCG member for some of the VLE projects for TEL’s 2008 I have the opportunity to participate in evaluating technologies in teaching and learning and to actively participate with numerous projects connected with Australian Flexible Learning Framework to help support the TAFE NSW state-wide initiative approach in line with the 21C paper. My experience with Adobe Connect, web2 applications VLE’s /PLE’s andSAM/OLS as well as 3 D virtual worlds and mLearning provides me with an extensive background and knowledge of emergent technology applications for helping teachers in designing and developing new pedagogical approaches to the way TAFE can deliver in the 21st Century. As a qualified adult educator, graphic artist and an online instructional designer I have been able to use my creative skills to enhance learner support strategies and develop new innovative ideas for educational technologies to complement the motivational effect of‘putting back the fun’ into learning. In the last two years I have been actively connecting, sharing and collaborating with other Institutes not only in Australia but also internationally. Some of these networks include in particular Sydney Institute, the Framework such as Learnscope/ ICVET/ and international teaching and learning bodies such as ODLAA and ASCILITE.

    Adobe Acrobat Connect is a commercial web conferencing platform produced by Adobe and is one of numerous platforms including Elluminate, now called Collaborate, iVocalize etc. which are referred to as synchronous communication platforms. Typically they combine live Web conferencing within a collaborative e-learning environment and are referrred to as synchrounous because the communication takes place in real time rather than over time as in asynchrous forms of communication such as forums or email groups. Typically they bring together simultaneous Voice over IP (VoIP), video, text chat, interactive whiteboard communications, application sharing etc. which are in-sync regardless of connection speed.
    Adobe Connect Professional features
    The Adobe Connect platform comprises the core Adobe Coonect Communication Server and applications for real-time and on-demand communication.

    There are 3 profile types in a Adobe Connect Professional meeting room, each with its own level of permissions.
    Hosts
    {http://staffspace.acu.edu.au/teams/hs/landt/C4LTH/SOLT%20Documents/webinar%20resources/moi.JPG}
    Can set up a meeting, invite guests, add content, and add or edit layouts in a meeting room. They can promote other participants to be hosts or presenters, and while a meeting is in progress, they can switch to preparing mode to create or edit a layout for a different presentation. They can use any features available to a presenter.
    Presenters
    {http://staffspace.acu.edu.au/teams/hs/landt/C4LTH/SOLT%20Documents/webinar%20resources/permissions.JPG}
    Can show content already loaded into the meeting room from the library, and they can show new content from their computer. They can also share a screen, making anything displayed on the presenter's screen appear on the meeting room Stage of all participants and presenters. They can also chat, answer questions, and broadcast live audio and video. What they can't do is alter the layout of the pods in the room.
    Participants
    Can view the content that the presenter is showing or sharing, hear and see the presenter's audio and video broadcast, use text chat, and broadcast their own audio and video, if given permission.

    Prior to entering the room you will need to ensure the microphone and/or webcam are working correctly.
    Audio Headsets
    Analogue headsets
    {http://static.flickr.com/88/259297980_5573ab643d_m.jpg} external image 259297980_5573ab643d_m.jpg
    Typically analogue headsets have 2 leads, one for the microphone and one for the headphones which are plugged into the computers sound card. They are referred to as analogue as the computers sound card converts the signals to digital information. The leads follow a loose colour coding convention which is unfortunately often not adhered to, pink for the mic and green for the headphones. They will also have printed symbols which denote the mic and headphones. One of the common problems with audio is that they are plugged into the wrong sockets on the computer.
    They commonly they have an in-line volume control and microphone mute switch which is also be good place to check if you have no audio signal. The microphones fold out and need to be close to your mouth, 15 cm max to work effectively.
    Analogue headsets range anywhere from $7 up to $50 depending on the quality of the headphones mostly, and are the most common type of headset used.
    Sound card settings
    Analogue headsets are notoriously difficult to get working as they require the "sounds and audio devices" settings in Windows XP to be set up correctly. As each sound card, driver software and computer is different so it is difficult to provide a definitive guide to the setup. Once set up it will not need to be altered, however it may require some trial and error tweaking to get it right initially.
    Desktop Computers
    It's not uncommon for desktop computers to have 2 microphone headphone socket sets, one at the rear and one at the front of the computer. Plug the headset into the one most convenient. The rest of the configuration will be done using the Windows "sounds and audio devices" panel.
    Notebook Computers
    {http://static.flickr.com/96/259455132_17da82aff2_m.jpg} external image 259455132_17da82aff2_m.jpg
    Notebooks often have an internal microphone in addition to a socket for an external microphone. Sometimes these are refered to mic 1 and mic 2 on the audio devices panel. When an external mic is connected the internal mic is disabled.
    USB headsets
    {http://static.flickr.com/99/259297942_3bb32f7a65_m.jpg} external image 259297942_3bb32f7a65_m.jpg
    USB headsets are fully digital in that the headset itself converts the microphone signals to digital information and hence the sound card in the computer is not utilised. The data is transferred via the USB port. One of the great features of USB headsets is that they are "plug and play" and don't require any drivers to be installed and will generally be ready to use once the Operating System has detected and configured the headset. The advantage of USB headsets is that you bypass the common issues surrounding sound cards and drivers, all you need to do is plug the lead into a free usb port and ensure the microphone level is set appropriately in the sounds and audio devices panel.
    {mic_level_usb.jpg} mic_level_usb.jpg
    Adobe Presentation on choosing a microphone
    Logging into Adobe Connect
    Typically when you attend a Adobe Connect meeting/conference you will be sent an invitation which includes a url to the room.
    {login.jpg} login.jpg
    If you are a registered user on the server enter your username and password
    Otherwise you can enter the room as a guest, here you will be asked to enter a name for the session.
    In some instances the room will have an additional layer of security and a request to enter the room will be sent to presenters and hosts present in the room who will in turn approve your entry.
    Setting your bandwidth
    ParticipantsConnection Speed
    Upon entering the room you should set the bandwith according to the speed of the connection you have to the internet.
    Select Meeting>My Connection Speed and choose from one of the options listed.
    {bandwith.jpg} bandwith.jpg
    Modem - Optimises your room use for a dialup connection.
    DSL - Optimises your room use for a broadband connection such as ADSL, cable
    LAN - Select this is you are on a corporate network, like @ TAFE
    Presenters/Hosts - Room Bandwidth
    If you are a presenter and/or a host in the room you will need to optimise the overall bandwith of the room.
    {connection_presenter.jpg} connection_presenter.jpg
    The bandwidth for the meeting room itself, should correspond to the average bandwidth of your meeting participants. This way Adobe Connect optimises the delivery of content to best suit the majority of users in the room.
    Running the audio Wizard
    Prior to using the Camera and Voice pod it is a good idea to run the set up wizard to optimise your audio for the meeting room.
    Select from the menu Meeting>Audio Setup Wizard
    {audio_wizard.jpg} audio_wizard.jpg
    Follow the steps outlined in the wizard to the very end.
    {audio_wizard_2.jpg} audio_wizard_2.jpg
    {addin.jpg} addin.jpg
    NOTE: To set your microphone for echo cancellation and noise suppression, you need to install the Adobe Connect Meeting Add-in. The Audio Setup wizard can run without this additional plugin however, for the highest quality audio possible with your configuration, Adobe recommends that you install the Adobe Connect Meeting Add-in and run the wizard.
    Advanced Settings
    If after running the audio wizard the room attendees are reporting poor audio quality or report you are tool low in volume, despite the audio panel adjustments you can turn off some of the automatic functions.
    This can be done in the final stage of the Audio set-up Wizard.
    Click the Advanced Settings .... button
    {audio_wizard_3.jpg} audio_wizard_3.jpg
    Silence Level
    For Silence Level, drag the slider to adjust the level. A higher setting results in more sensitivity to silence in an audio broadcast.
    Automatic gain Control
    The automatic gain function dynamically adjusts your microphone levels based on how loud you speak. Occasionally this is too aggressive and results in too much gain being applied. To turn it off uncheck the AGC check box and manually adjust your microphone level with the slider.
    {audio_wizard_4.jpg} audio_wizard_4.jpg
    Echo Cancellation Mode
    This is important if you want to use speakers and a microphone where multiple speakers can generate feedback.
    For Acoustic Echo Cancellation Mode, select an option to adjust echo cancellation (the Flash Connect Add‑in must be installed to use this option):
    Option
    Description
    Full Duplex
    Enables multiple users to speak at one time. If echo feedback results, select another option (this option is preferred for most systems).
    Half Duplex
    Enables only one user to speak at a time. Use this option if microphones on your system are unusually sensitive (transmitting unwanted background sound) or if you have poor echo cancellation.
    Headphones
    Optimizes audio settings for use with headphones. This option uses Full Duplex mode, in which multiple users can speak at one time.
    Off
    Disables echo cancellation.
    Audio Quality
    For Audio Quality, select an option to adjust a combination of all audio settings, including silence level, echo cancellation, and gain control, to provide optimized performance. A higher quality setting uses more CPU resources, and therefore slows performance, but provides better audio quality. It is recommended that you use the highest quality setting that does not cause detectable audio degradation on your system. Select one of four settings:
    Option
    Description
    Fast
    Provides the fastest performance but the lowest audio quality. (This setting uses the fewest CPU resources. Use this option for systems with slower CPUs.)
    Good
    Provides somewhat slower performance but better audio quality. (This is the default setting, recommended for most systems.)
    Best
    Provides the slowest performance but the best audio quality. (Use this option for systems with very fast CPUs.)
    Custom
    Enables you to select options for audio quality settings. Use this option if the standard settings do not provide adequate results. Proceed to step 10 to select Custom options.
    NOTE: Best not to adjust any of the Advanced setting unless you experience problems.
    Camera and Voice Pod
    {http://staffspace.acu.edu.au/teams/hs/landt/C4LTH/SOLT%20Documents/webinar%20resources/imagecam_2.JPG}
    Place video here... to learn how to set up audio for a meeting room & use the Camera and Voice Pod.
    Hints on using camera/voice
    Unless you have a specific reason it's best not to utilise the video camera as it consumes significant bandwith and may degarde the overall experience of the session. As a facilitator you may introduce the session using the camera and then pause it for the duration of the session
    To pause the camera click the camera icon, this will take a snap shot from the camera and use this as a still picture. The camera can be restarted by clicking the icon again.
    It's a good idea to turn you microphone off if you are not speaking. With multiple speaker mode enabled, each participant adds a little background noise to the session which culminates in a distracting background interference.
    The microphone lock mode is useful if you need to use your mouse to demonstrate and essential if you are desktop sharing as the foucus is moved to away from the meeting room to the shaped application.

    Configuring pod options
    Once you have been granted control over a pod the options button will be present in the lower right hand corner.
    Camera Off Turns off video broadcasting.
    Slow Images Samples and transmits the camera image less frequently than other image settings. Images tend to be low-quality and can shift abruptly. Use this setting if most attendees have low-speed connections or if you are not concerned about image quality.
    Fast Images Provides a clear but not high-quality image. Use this setting if attendees are connected at a variety of speeds.
    High Quality Images Provides high-quality images. Use this setting if all attendees are connected at high speeds.
    Portrait Presents a square shape.
    Standard Approximates 160/120 aspect ratio.
    Landscape Approximates 9/5 aspect ratio.
    Voice Off - Turns off all audio broadcasting.
    Voice On - Multiple Speakers Turns on audio broadcasting. Meeting attendees who have the appropriate permissions can broadcast audio. Any attendee can talk when holding down the Talk button.
    Voice On - One Speaker Turns on audio broadcasting. Meeting attendees who have the appropriate permissions can broadcast audio. When a speaker holds down the Talk button, the Talk button is disabled for other users, who cannot broadcast their voice.
    Allowing participants to broadcast
    There are three methods a presenter can use to allow participants to broadcast video and audio in a meeting.
    Method 1
    Method one promotes the participant to a Presenter role. As a Presenter, the participant can use any meeting features available to a presenter except change the layout and size of the pods.
    {enhanced_3.jpg} enhanced_3.jpg
    Select the users name in the Attendee List and then set their role as presenter. This will give them control over all pods, including the camera and voice pod.
    Method 2
    The second method is to enable "auto promote participants to presenters feature". Here as participants enter the room they are automatically promoted to the role of presenter.
    As a host or presenter click the meeting menu and enable the option for the room.
    Method 3
    The third method changes the participant's rights only for the Camera and Voice pod. From the Attendee List pod, you can grant presenter's rights to a participant for a specific pod.
    {enhanced_1.jpg} enhanced_1.jpg
    {enhanced_2.jpg} enhanced_2.jpg
    You can choose to grant a user control over one or more pods. Note they will have same control as hosts and presenters over pods which can lead to some chaotic outcomes if users begin changing settings which effect everyone in the room.
    This is a useful method to give participants control over the camera and voice pod so they can use a mic or camera.
    NOTE: You can select all participants by selecting "Select All" and then use the "Change Enhanced Participants Rights" option to grant control over pods.
    Attendee List Pod
    {attendees.jpg} attendees.jpg
    The Attendee List pod, enables you can quickly see who is logged in to a meeting and monitor everyone's name, role, and status.
    The names in the Attendee List pod are grouped by role indicated by their icon.
    {attendees_roles.jpg} attendees_roles.jpg
    Presenters and participants can view a participant's name & status while hosts can control options.
    Emoticons
    By default the participant emoticon is blank. However, participants can change their own emoticon to indicate to the group their status. For example they might wish to ask a question or indicate they have stepped away. When a participant selects a status, an icon appears to the right of the their name. Participants can clear their status at any time during a meeting. When you have responded to a message and want to clear the participant status, select Clear User Status from the Attendee List Pod Options pop-up menu.
    About attendee bandwidth
    When an attendee's connection falls below the current meeting room bandwidth, one of the following indicators appears to the right of the user's name:

    Capturing Moments!
    In this 2 hour videoconference workshop, we will address the varied ways in which you can potentially repurpose existing resources to a multi-media format which can capture images, text and video and compile it into a neat presentable package file for quick viewing to share across a myriad of platforms. We will start with the simple to the moderately easy tools available, then move on to the more complex ones; even looking at ways in which we can convert videos to other formats to play in different platforms and displays on mobile devices.
    Lastly we will look how we can create videos on the fly using iPhone, iPads and deploy them to a range of devices and link them to the 'Cloud'. We will look at 'Cloud Computing' in another session but start to consider cloud repositories rather than saving to computer drives for ease of mobile access and updating content anywhere anytime.
    Starting Off
    Ideally, you need to create three folder types: 1.Videos, 2.Audios, 3.Images.
    Demonstrate Process: Capture (video, photo, audio) Post to web for access, Convert file, Upload LEO and Play.
    By aggregating files from different media types (audio, images, videos) you can develop or repurpose new dynamic media resources very quickly on the 'fly' using a range of free authoring tools like PhotoStory, Moviemaker, Audacity and non freeware such as Adobe Presenter, Adobe Captivate and Adobe Connect Pro. These products can also be deployed in a myriad of ways across a range of platforms eg LEO, Adobe Connect Pro, Wikis or Blogs.
    Converting Files to Suit Platforms:
    Many platforms though do have specific file formats. Many video capturing devices produce varied files formats and some may need converting. This can be easily done by a freeware called Any Video Converter which in seconds can convert files captured in any format type to a recommended file format for LEO, Adobe Connect Pro and other platforms.
    iPads need a different browser to play <Swf or flash> files and this is enabled by Puffin Browser rather than Safari
    Access Puffin ($1.99) on Apple Store
    {http://staffspace.acu.edu.au/teams/hs/landt/C4LTH/SOLT%20Documents/Capturing%20Device/puffin.JPG} Puffin Browser
    Types of Output files:
    Conversion Software:
    Any Video Converter - is a great application to download and its free!
    Types of Video Formats:
    Mobile devices- MOV
    PhotoStory WAV, WMV
    Moviemaker- WMV
    Adobe Presenter - SWF/FLV
    Best overall conversion is the file format called- AVI (Use Any Video Converter)
    Audio Formats
    Mp4peg
    Mp3peg
    You can use Audacity (Free audio authoring tool) or Any Video Converter ( converts audio not just video)
    Image Formats:
    Jpeg (recommended for images)
    Gif (recommended for drawings)
    Png
    Video formats supported by Prism.
    Prism converts avi, mpg, vob, asf, wmv, mp4
    and all video formats that have a DirectShow based codec. If you can play the video file using Windows Media Player, you can convert it using Prism.
    {http://www.nchsoftware.com/prism/images/formats.jpg} MPEG AVI MP4 MOV WMV video file format converter
    You can use microsoft office using Save As or <Paint> found in <Accessories under <Programs>
    User friendly access Player types:
    LEO can accept most files the problem lies in the access of these files from the user device whether its an ipad or PC or Mac. Often files play in various platforms better than others and depending on the computer or device often these default to software like Quicktime, Media Player Series, iTunes, Realtime etc. The ideal set up is to have a university streaming server that caters for these variables and downtime bandwidth issues that is not compromised by the user. This would be very conducive to a plethora of file types regardless of what the user uses to access.
    MASHUPS:
    The main characteristics of a mashup are combination, visualization, and aggregation. It is important to make existing data more useful, for personal and professional use.
    Mashups can be considered to have an active role in the evolution of social software and Web 2.0. Mashup composition tools are usually simple enough to be used by end-users. They generally do not require programming skills. In technology, a mashup enabler is a tool for transforming incompatible IT resources into a form that allows them to be easily combined, in order to create a mashup. Mashup enablers allow powerful techniques and tools (such as mashup platforms) for combining data and services to be applied to new kinds of resources.
    There is a myriad of technology tools and software out there ranging from free to various costed software applications for both computers including new Apps to same output using idevices for cloud computing.
    We will cover user friendly technology as follows:
    PhotoStory 3
    Windows Moviemaker
    Adobe Presenter 8
    Adobe Connect Pro
    Simplest Way to Mashup :
    Repurposing what you already have in the form of powerpoints, images and or videos or starting to create from scratch is easy.
    Basic Requirements:
    In order to capture video /audio files on your Mac or PC is easy but you will need the following technologies to develop your content for any video recorder software.
    {http://www.nchsoftware.com/capture/images/webcam.jpg} Webcam Recording Software {http://www.nchsoftware.com/capture/images/device.jpg} Video Recording Software {http://www.nchsoftware.com/capture/images/desktop.jpg} Video Screen Capture
    Record from
    webcam/ Headset
    Record from
    eg iPad external devices
    Record using your
    computer or Mobile device
    i) Microsoft Windows PhotoStory 3 (Garage band for Mac)
    Choose simple free software eg Windows PhotoStory 3 is a great way to begin your first capture of images, talk over's and reproducing resources to another level. This great little software 'can do' all your images, text and audio and then beautifully package it as a small nifty video to be viewed on any platform.
    This could be the start of storyboarding what you already have to engage your students to have now a three dimensional aspect to a once 2 dimensional resource. Learn how to create digital Storytelling through PhotoStory as a beginning to the world of multimedia resource development.
    Visit **Digital Storytelling** wiki.
    You will need to have downloaded the latest Windows Media Player 12 (Free download)
    Demonstration PhotoStory ppt
    (A demonstration will now be done and recorded for viewers)
    One of the ways one can think of repurposing one's own resources is how you could manipulate and change the file format to embed into another file. This can be done in PhotoStory.
    Question1: What is PhotoStory?
    Once you understand what it is you can CONVERT slides to WHAT?
    Then you can manipulate them all to a movie. How simply by selecting in powerpoint and converting its original format.
    Simply < Save As> Jpegs
    Then in PhotoStory select the <Insert> button and import them ALL!
    Another trick is to save a Blank image in <Paint> and now you can add any text with no background eg Pose a question maybe?
    The entire PhotoStory becomes a WMV file (One form of a Video format) that can be converted through Any Video Converter software to suit certain platforms. Read later in this session section on Conversion Software.
    The WMV file can now if wanting to go to the NEXT level? deployed to Windows Moviemaker. Insert all ( entire file) as a video because now thats what it is... it it no longer just a ppt file you powerpoint. It has now become a wmv video with voice, image and file format text added in a one single package.
    ii) Windows MovieMaker
    This is another free software available included in Microsoft office suite 6,7,8 Vista and XP. Using Windows Moviemaker you can actually add live camera video capture using your Webcam (either in built or attached USB).
    Visit **Windows Moviemaker** wiki.
    iii) Adobe Presenter 8
    Adobe Presenter 8 software helps you communicate more effectively with engaging videos and interactive presentations created in Microsoft PowerPoint. Minimize the time, effort, and cost of producing and editing videos by doing it yourself at your desktop. Add quizzes; deliver to the web, video sharing sites, desktops, and mobile devices; and track using integration with Learning Management Systems (LMSs).
    Create interactive eLearning content
    Easily convert your presentations into interactive eLearning content from within PowerPoint. Capitalize on your presentation skills to create high-impact training videos. Add quizzes and assets, deliver to desktops and mobile devices, and track using leading LMSs and Adobe Connect. Learn more ›
    New Feature #1: One-Click Integration with Adobe Captivate 6
    As Figure 1 shows, Presenter now has three different Record options. The first lets you record audio, synchronizing it to your slides and animations. The second taps into your Webcam to record video of yourself (or anything or anyone else you like), and the third lets you tap into Adobe Captivate’s screen-recording abilities. This last option is available only if you have Adobe Captivate installed.
    {http://www.learningsolutionsmag.com/assets/images/learningsolutions/2012/120830/image001.png}
    Figure 1: The three recording options
    Choosing the Record Application Simulation option gives you access to Captivate’s recording dialog (without the rest of the Captivate interface). There you have all the options normally available, including the ability to simultaneously record different types of simulations: demonstrations, in which you are showing learners how something works; training, in which you let learners practice without penalty, providing hints along the way; and assessments, in which you test the learner’s knowledge, keeping track of the learner’s answers and progress. You also can create a fourth type of simulation: custom, in which you choose what to include.
    Once you’ve completed the recording, Presenter will create a slide for each type of simulation you created. Each slide will contain a simulation SWF (published Flash) file. For instance, if you choose to record both a demo and an assessment, you will see two new PowerPoint slides created in your slide deck. The first will contain the demo SWF file and the second will contain the assessment SWF file.
    You also will notice in Figure 1 that there is an Edit option for Application Simulations as well. Once you’ve recorded a simulation, clicking the Edit button will return you to Captivate and then you will be able to access all of Captivate’s features to edit the recording you created.
    For those who use Captivate and Presenter together, this is a very useful new feature.
    New Feature #2: Video Production
    As mentioned above, there is also an option in Presenter 8 to let you record your own videos. The cool thing about this option is that you can be on camera while you move through your slides, simultaneously recording both.
    Once you click the Record Video icon (see Figure 1) you’ll be able to set your preferences, as Figure 2 shows. If you have more than one microphone or Webcam, you can choose the one you want to use.
    {http://www.learningsolutionsmag.com/assets/images/learningsolutions/2012/120830/image002.png}
    Figure 2: Video preferences
    Once you’ve recorded yourself, you are able to edit the video using the options in Figure 3. You can:
    Apply your own branding
    Pan and zoom your video and/or your presentation
    Trim your video
    {http://www.learningsolutionsmag.com/assets/images/learningsolutions/2012/120830/image003.png}
    Figure 3: Editing options
    As Figure 4 shows, you can also choose different layouts for different portions of the video. You can choose to:
    Show only the presenter
    Show only the presentation
    Show both with the presenter on the left
    Show both with the presenter on the right
    {http://www.learningsolutionsmag.com/assets/images/learningsolutions/2012/120830/image004.png}
    Figure 4: Layout options
    What I really like about the above is that you don’t have to stick to only one layout for the whole video; you can switch out layouts at any time along the way. For example, you can start with just the presenter, and then have the presenter and the presentation share the screen. At any point where you want to show a lot of detail from the presentation, you can switch to making the presentation full screen.
    When you’re ready to publish,Presenter offers you the four options shown in Figure 5:
    Publish it to your computer
    Export it to PowerPoint
    Upload it to YouTube
    Upload it to Adobe Connect
    {http://www.learningsolutionsmag.com/assets/images/learningsolutions/2012/120830/image005.png}
    Figure 5: Publishing options
    Other options in the video editor include automatically adjusting brightness and sharpness, reducing background noise, and more. All in all, this feature is pretty cool for anyone who has wanted an easy way to incorporate video into presentations.

    Embedding media into documents online in Word
    Inserting Audio, Video into a Microsft Office Word Document
    Simply goto <Home> and Select tab <Insert > Select < Object> then select <wave sound> You now have the option to record live anywhere on the document and save it . This will be played when clicked by the reader. You could do all your rubrics this way for assignments to save writing. If you have pre recorded 15 second recordings on your rubric responses as seperate < audio files> eg Fail blurb , Pass, Credit, Distinction- you could then select and embed them accordingly across the document to save writing and return to student either by email or feedback via Mahara ( e-Portfolio)
    Bringing Word Documents Alive to the Reader.
    You could have a word document uploaded into LEO that could actually talk to the student. You could do a prerecorded video in Moviemaker and embed it as a <Video Clip> using the same procedure in Word under <Insert> and select <Object> upload your WMV file and embed .
    In Moviemaker using you Webcam select <Capture> and then just start and end recording. (Demo done)
    Using desktop sharing technology and converting a word document to a PDF you could upload it into Adobe Connect start your webcam and start recording and you could actually display someone's work and walk through it in Adobe Connect Pro and send them the recording. (Demo done)
    You can record on your iPhone (MOV Demo) this does not have to be converted to avi or wmv a MOV file is fine so you could potentially talk to your iphone using the headset it came with and then email it to your self and save to a folder for your cohort and embed into their assignment online and return to student email. Adobe connect could do track changes and you could talk as you are doing it then send the recording device to student in eportfolio - <Mahara Dropbox > feedback section or email.(Demo done)

    {ipy.JPG} I relieved for 2 years since 2007 as A/CEO for Learning and Innovation Unit at Sydney Institute of TAFE NSW. My experience in innovative approaches to teaching and learning is extensive in particular with the emergent technologies in education using Web 2.0 and mobile technologies and virtual worlds. As an educationalist extraordinaire I have been afforded some challenging projects in Vocational Education and Training (VET). I have pioneered with a small elearning team the initial development to online facilitation program at WSI in the ELF programusing Wikispaces, Adobe Connect and Moodle. This 6 month pilot online program has provided teachers across WSI with a 21st Century mindset to cater for greater flexible options to support student-centred learning environments in today's 'connected era'. The impact of this project trial has increased workforce capability for today's teachers considerable especially for flexible mixed mode options for the busy mobile student and their multi-modal learning styles.
    Since 2009 I have been the National eLearning Coordinator for Faculty Health Sciences for Australian Catholic University. My current role here is to provide elearning educational design and new pedagogical approaches in higher education across the Health Faculty and assist academics in their Unit oultines and graduate attributes across their School curriculum. The Schools across the Faculty involve Nursing, Physiotherapy, Paramedicine, Exercise Science, Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapy and Public health. My partnership in 2009 with Charles Darwin University for the DSA project afforded me to collaborate as an ACU eLearning consultant in blended learning design across Health Sciences in expanding new ways of delivering Exercise Sport Science remotely in the Northern Territory.
