Recording, slides and tweets from #MmITvideo

MmIT’s webinar on Using video in your library and information service was held on 12 December 2018 and attracted a audience of over 50.  MmIT Chair Andy Tattersall chaired the webinar and we were delighted to have three speakers from a range of professional library sessions who provided practical and inspiring introductions to a range of video-related tools:

  • Kim Donovan from @SPHLibrary introduced the Actionbound  scavenger hunt app, which allows the creator to upload video for information and/or to set tasks which involve students/users uploading their own video.
  • MmIT Committee member Christina Harbour from @AngliaRuskin discussed Powtoon  (which enables even beginners to create engaging, animated videos)  and provided tips and hints on creating video using an iPad.
  • Claire Sewell  from @theUL at Cambridge University provided overviews of Lumen5  (A.I. powered video creation platform that turns blog posts into engaging videos) and Screencastify (a browser extension that can be used as a live demo tool or to record a screen demo).

Via Twitter we had a recommendation from Cate Newell for Biteable, which is similar to Powtoon, for induction videos as it is free and easy to use and upload to YouTube.
