I have a mac-book and from that it has opened up a whole new world for me. I can record ,myself , I record teachers (when I am teaching storytelling) I record kids I teach . I have used Imovies with the kids as a rubric for teachers to measure the difference ( I usually record twice,once at the start of session and again towards the end. Lately for me a session has been either a six to nine weeks depending on the school or situation. I use a blog, (not in the traditional way) I use it for my website as it gives me the flexibility of changing pages , adding pages, adding sound video, etc. on my own time whenever I choose and in mins. And now tech. has given us this website. Which we are all using and discovering together. Andrea
Great idea Norah!!!
At lunch at work right noe but tomorrow I will post my stuff on low cost web sites and some viedo tips.

By the Way I still use audacity for the web and my CDs thanks to you and Stu.
Your notes should help others as well.

Thanks again

I envy you Andrea
My brother-in-law owns a Mac and he can create edit and post video faster and cooler than me before I can even log onto the net with my PC.
For video, folks if you have a choice consider the MAcs first.
Hey Norah isn't that your choice as well?

A very jealous Learnin' Vernon

Yes to Macs - I have used only Macs since 1986 - whoooeeee - that is a long time.
And the tool iMovie is very cool - allows one to edit and post with ease -
My burning Q:

What is out there for the PC user that, like Audacity does for audio, will help edit video? Anything???

Anyone?
PC Tips?

I use microsofts Movie Maker and it is ok, but slow compared to my Brother-in-laws Mac Lap Top.
One problem is the files may need to be converted. It helps to use an online converter like Media-Convert (FREE)
http://media-convert.com/#haut
It will allow you to use a digital camera or movie Camera of almost any type.

3G2 3GP AMV ASF AVI DPG DV FLI FLV GIF GVI MKV MOV MP4 MPG NSV OGG OGM RM RPL
SWF VOB WMV

+ video presets for Windows, Linux, Mac, SVCD, DVD, Pocket PC, Mobile phone, Nokia 770, Nokia N800, iPOD, iPHONE, Sony PSP, Nintendo DS, Wii, Zune, S1MP3 MP4 player.

Hope this helps PC folks who like me are waiting for the Mac fairy to visit.

There was a time you had to be a computer genius or wealthy to have a web presence on the Information highway!
Now there are some sites you can join for little or no cost to advertise your storytelling talents. All you need is to know where to go and what you want to do when you get there.

The attached article was originaly done for the Museletter and is now offered as a work shop.

Yes and I found you need to scroll down a bit and
SAVE changes for this to work! I tried about 6 times before I saw that.
Yeah but thanks to your effort and post the next teller will not have to.

You have great shoulders to which one can stand! Thanks for being a Trail blazer
