As we go along we often stumble upon some cool software and resources. Our little blog is a place where we like to share those with you. Occasionally we may brag a little bit about the nifty completed projects or web applications we've developed. Hope you'll enjoy the read!
Screencasting Combined with Green-screen video
If you go to the expense of a conference, then you should (at a fraction of the price) probably webcast it. If you are webcasting, then (at a fraction of the price), you should probably archive it!
Digilogue always advise clients to try to get more out of the events and media they already have. Alternatively, if giving a workshop (or series of), then it may not cost much to prop up a camera and record the event. Caveat - yes, it should be done correctly or not at all (try to get the lighting right, good quality camera, clear audio etc.) but this doesn't have to cost much!
Digilogue have been webcasting since 1999. No, that's not a mis-print! INTO webcast their Annual Congress in 1999 and if memory serves, we had to ensure the hotel had ISDN and tried to match our bitrates and resolution to the widely used 56k modems and tiny-windowed 160pixels wide players. Webcasting was done then via 'Real Producer' and many aspects were pretty challenging!
Digilogue web design Galway have been working with INTO to develop a more robust and responsive version of their online app - SubSearch. SubSearch enables school principals to easily find substitute teachers in their area available for work on specific days. On the flip side, the app allows teachers to register their availability for substitute work on specific days. In summary, the web application matches substitute teachers with schools seeking subs.
Recently Digilogue web development had the opportunity to work with PDST on their anti-bullying for irish Primary and Post-Primary schools. We were presented with a task of creating an online course / presentation on the topic which would complement the face-to-face presentations happening nationwide in various education centres. The 4 presentations were variations on the same theme - one Primary, one Post-Primary and two translations as Gaeilge for each.
