Re: WAY OT Re: Podcast, anyone...? (was Re: alt video)
Everyone has raised interesting questions. Our photo historian has a website with all his information on it, including 3000 images. It is accessible by students and faculty with a password, which changes every semester. He does this for copyright purposes.
Second, at last year's SPE a prof talked about podcasting his history lectures and posting them on his website. He thought that it might make students not come to class. In fact, his attendance did not change, and the students really appreciated it because they could review using the podcasts. So it was a win/win for him.
Since Camden, heheheh, is in my photo dept and going to TA for my alt class next semester, I would be willing to have a demo or two recorded, but that would entail a video cam to do it well, correct Camden? I don't have one. Or is a Nikon 200 good enough?
I have thought about applying for a grant to pay a video person to do this with both my Experimental class and my Alt class to go along with my Experimental Photography Workbook and my Alternative Processes Condensed book...when I do demos, I do them once, and if the student is absent or cannot see because the room is too crowded, and they're not bold enough to shove forward, they really don't get the full gist of the demo. But to do it myself (editing,etc., aside from the fact I can't film myself) would be so incredibly time consuming I just can't.
But there is nothing better than watching something as simple as a gum coat go on. Or a mordancage demo--the word is hard enough for students to pronounce, let alone get what I am talking about without seeing a demo. When Mark Nelson was out, he watched me coat palladium and he was able to tell me several things from watching my coating process that he couldn't if he wasn't watching. So personally I think podcasting is a perfect tool for alt.

it is my understanding that we have some academics in this forum...i'd be very interested to hear their input does money = education...at least after the first job? --- Katharine Thayer <email@example.com> wrote:On Nov 19, 2006, at 7:52 AM, david drake wrote: > > I'm not sure what all the fuss is about it being free; podcast > listeners cannot receive any sort of credit for the course and > isn't that why one attends college anyway :) ? Yes, I too found the question puzzling, because in attending college, people are paying for the degree, not the information; sharing the knowledge doesn't undermine the interest of the university which confers the degree. After all, the discoveries of scientists have been shared publicly for a long time without their universities going out of business as a result.
