CEHD Introductory Video Workshop- March 5th (RSVP Now!)

We have decided to offer a 2-hour introductory workshop, led by Pete McCauley, on video production tools that are available to the academic community here in CEHD.
The primary focus of this workshop will be editing and sharing your videos; i.e. using iMovie and adding your video to a blog / website / Moodle page.

This is an informal event that will take place in 355 Peik Hall on Thursday March 5th, from 3:30 until 5:30PM. We will hopefully offer more of these in the future. Peik 355 has 30 Mac workstations with all the software we’ll need; if you have any video files you might like to experiment with feel free to bring them – otherwise, we’ll just use some sample footage. If you have cameras that you use and would like to see how they integrate with the editing software in the lab, feel free to bring them as well.
See outline for details on this workshop

**Please RSVP to pstlitf@umn.edu if you wish to attend.**

Feel free to forward this email to other folks within CEHD that you think would benefit from this workshop. There is no fee involved, and if there is enough interest perhaps we will make this an ongoing event.
