People considering our iDEC smartphone video training often ask the same questions and share the same concerns…Is the course very technical? Will I be able to Keep up? What does the course cover? What is iDEC? What type of video’s will I be able to make? So, we thought the best thing is to make a series of short videos that follow the learner journey as they undertake our e-learning course.
Susannah Hobbs, communications manager at Oxford Community Foundation, agreed to let us follow her learner journey to becoming an iDEC smartphone videographer.
The series will follow from her first morning, as she shares her anxieties and concerns at beginning her training. We will hear her reaction as she develops her iDEC skills and begins to create montages and tell caption led stories in the form of video sequences.
You will hear her thoughts as she begins the process of delivering a PTC (pieces to camera) and be with her as she conducts her first interview. You will gain insight into the challenges of adding captions and music, learning to do two things at once and facing ‘the blank wall challenge’.
You will hear her reflections on her learner journey and be with her as she takes all the key steps required to develop the skills to enable her to be capable of creating all the agile video content she is ever going to need to generate.
