How Dartmouth Produces Video Podcasts

Commentary by Stephen Downes

A bit chatty, but nonetheless a useful account of how video recordings are produced at Dartmouth. One comment struck me, that there will always be a need for a camera operator. This doesn't strike me as true. I remember when I did videoconferencing in the 1990s at Assiniboine the camera could be voice activated and could also follow an infrared sensor worn by the speaker. As well, it seems to me, hand gestures could be used (assuming the patent trolls ever license the technology) to zoom and point the camera. Eventually somebody will put the whole package together.
