Based on the consensus reached in class, I have drafted a proposal to document guest lectures. I am willing to coordinate planning and initial scheduling. I will post a draft of a more detailed plan with a breakdown of tasks in the Docs area of the Commons group. Please add your suggestions.
Perhaps we should have a name for this team/project/set of tasks. What do people suggest?
Important: Please also look at the roles to see where you might be interested in contributing or suggest other roles. Send a Commons message to me with your contact information if you would like to participate. If you have technical skills, include a brief description of them.
Planning should start immediately in consultation with the instructors, Videography Fellows and class members.
Goal: To document guest lectures of the Digital Praxis Seminar in Fall 2013 on high quality video and audio. The Graduate Center Videography Fellows will record several lectures and post them on the Internet. The lectures that won’t be recorded by the Videography Fellows will be recorded by class members and, when possible, posted online.
(I would suggest that audio be recorded separately from video. The audio files are much easier to handle and could be posted immediately.)
