Preparing Slides and Movies

Suggestions for Preparing Slides and Movies for Hosting on the GSDI Instructional Video Web Page Slide Preparation

Slides with large type and few words work best for transitioning a slide presentation to a video. For any material extracted from sources created by others, your last several slides should provide, if needed, a (1) Copyright Clearance Statement, (2) List of References and (3) Attribution Credit for Images. The last slide must contain the required Copyright Statement placing the slides and video created from them under a Creative Commons Attribution License. Example: See the last several slides of Pervasive Location Tracking: A Privacy Protection Perspective for examples and the license text that should be used. Slide Document for Note Taking

The Powerpoint slide set should be converted to a pdf file that viewers may print and take notes on while listening to your video. Create the pdf such that three slides appear per page. Making Your Movie

The first several movies on this site were recorded using an inexpensive screen capture program titled "Snapz Pro X". Another program that may be worth exploring is "Profcast". Other options probably abound. When recording the video we recommend that you use a headset microphone and a remote control for changing slides to lessen background noise.

Some web streaming sites have time limits on your presentation (i.e. time limit on YouTube is ten minutes). Most web streaming sites do not play back in stereo. Thus when doing screen capturing of your slides and voice, record only a single track from your microphone and do NOT additionally record an audio track from your computer (e.g. such as for sound effects or music) unless you intend to do movie editing. We suggest that you create a short 30-second test video with voice, upload it to a site like scivee, see if it plays back as you desire under the recording settings you selected, and then delete the file from the server.
