Video clips placed online are referred to as Video podcasts (Vodcasts). The term vodcast comes from the combination of the words “video” and “podcast”. The eLearning ICT team has researched and tested the use of various video editing software which will assist lecturers and students to create personalised vodcasts. Video clips can be recorded using, cell phones, video cameras or webcams. The recorded clips can then be imported and edited using the video editing software.
Vodcasting can be used by students to interview patients or clients during their fieldwork excursions. Once lecturers and students have been trained on the use of the software, users will be able to:
· Edit video clips
· Customise video clips
· Extract audio from video files
· Merge multiple video clips into a single video file
· Convert video files to be played on PC, Laptop, iPhone, DVD and other popular cell phone brands.
The eLearning team invites all interested lecturers who are willing to pilot this eTool within their instructional practices.
