Thing 6: YouTube + Screencasts

11 Jun
The One Hour Per Second video is YouTube’s statistics as of January 2012. With 10 decades worth of video uploaded every day, YouTube’s usage via mobile is accounting for 1/4 of global views. With hundreds of millions of devices wracking up 1 billion views a day, YouTube is the 3rd most popular website after Facebook and Google.
Other than Youtube, Vimeo, Vine, ViddySocial CamAnimotouStream are some of the various video apps and tools. Screencasting is another whole kettle of fish.
Screencasting is traditionally capturing video of a screen for training or educational purposes. One of the screencasts I regularly watch are gamers screencasts, of their screen as they play through a game. While some smartphones give you the ability to capture screenshots, there are few legitimate apps. Much of the software is only desktop recording.
So in this Thing, we will check out some of the different ways libraries are using video to not only engage with clients, provide services,  general information and event programming while still having fun.

DISCOVER:

You have probably seen some great uses of YouTube for libraries.

But what about something new like Vine ?


EXPLORE:

Beginners: Record a video on your mobile device and upload a YouTube video

  • you will need to create a YouTube account to upload your video
  • you could try using the YouTube Capture by Google app if you are using iOS or download the Vine app or use any other video platform

More experienced: Challenge yourself to create a video using Vine (using #anz23mthings when you share it), Animoto  (iOS and Android apps available) or Xtranormal

Bonus Points:

  • Create a screencast video of a regular library task and commentate the video like a documentary.
