College Web Guy just posted a great post about Soundslides, which is a nifty little program that you can use to create some unique multimedia for your site. I won’t go into too much detail, because he’s already said what needs to be said. Instead, here are some more ‘Higher-Ed’ examples of what can be done. For the audio, check out his other post on the MicroTrack 24/96. Most of these were done with an Olympus VN-960PC, which does a decent job and has a USB output.
“Senator Durbin Visits” – A senator came to campus to speak with students about cuts to financial aid, which provided some good dialogue for the video.
“VT Candlelight“ – By getting this SoundSlide live overnight, we were able to show the campus community what the students did after they went home for the day.
“Students on the Quad” - A light-hearted look at one of the first days of Spring! And of course, it’s always windy at UIS.
“Mr. UIS 2006” - A men’s ‘beauty’ contest on campus. Always a good time! I started this event when I was an RA, so it was neat to cover it and not be running the show!
“Take me out to the Ballgame” - No better sound than the crack of the bat on a windy spring day!
Anyone else out there have some examples to share??
