This shoebox arrived in the post today. It is the creation of one of my technical colleagues. It contains everything needed to record video and audio that can be use as additional digital learning resources to accompany an e-textbook that we are working on. There is a compact video camera, audio recording gear, guerilla tripod, cables, instructions, and spare batteries – all in robust snap-lock boxes. The idea is that the shoebox will tour the colleges and the participants will self-record their contributions, which we will later edit and add the clips to a companion website to supplement the e-book. We are trying to streamline the recording process so that we can easily produce high-quality digital resources to augment text and other learning resources for a wide range of subjects. We will document the process so that others can learn from our experiences.
