        Please share the link to your video interaction below (e.g. Articulate Review or H5P link), and also answer the following questions:

        What aspect of creating the content was the most challenging?

        How comfortable were you doing this activity with less guidance than in previous units?

        Also, feel free to comment on the content of others if there’s anything that stands out.

          Many failed attempts :wacko: later:

          How comfortable were you doing this activity with less guidance than in previous units?

          I was absolutely fine with going solo.  We were not totally without guidance, as we still had the videos to help us, and I was already reasonably familiar with the video editing part.

          What aspect of creating the content was the most challenging?

          I did hit endless ‘challenges’ along the way, however, though I am not sure that further guidance would have helped much as the obstacles were so disparate and random.  What I often need most is a 24 hour helpline!  As it was, despite eons of experiment, most of the obstacles were not surmounted and neither was the reason for them understood.   This just resulted in me producing material which I had huge misgivings about and were not at all in line with my original intention.  If you’ll bear with me, here is a sample of the kind of things I mean:

          • I had intended to take a short introductory clip from a video I had downloaded from youTube.  However, for some reason, this particular section appeared on the Clipchamp editing timeline as pure black – with no frames available at all until AFTER the section I required.  (See yellow mark up.) I managed to guess at the editing, anyway, but the resultant clip is not exact and looks unacceptably amateurish.  It was also immensely time consuming.  Plus, although the explanation will no doubt be a simple one, I have not got to the bottom of what went wrong…

           

          • My original intention was to display the video and the quiz on the same slide, probably in Storyline.  The quiz would have been a simple multiple tick chart to identify key facts mentioned in the video.  (This was only intended as a fleeting introductory engagement activity.)  I could not find a way to make this happen so instead ended up using a range of Storyline quiz questions.  At this point, these were chosen on the basis of expediency as they were the ones I could make work – not very pedagogically sound!  For example, I could not master the multiple tick sheet one so replaced it with the – very unwieldy – timeline format.  Neither was this solution satisfactory from a tech viewpoint as there were numerous glitches with, for example, the layouts on the final slides seeming to keep re-arranging themselves and the questions randomly re-ordering themselves of – apparently – their own free will :scratch: .  The overall result is a horrifying lack of contiguity :negative: .  I also committed The Ultimate Sin – more horrors – as the final activity has ended up deteriorating into a memory test rather than an interactive comprehension activity :negative:

           

          • I had attempted to resort to Articulate Rise but the Clipchamp clip did not appear to be supported:

           

          • Likewise with Edupuzzle:

           

          It’s possible that the 1GB limit may have been a factor here, which is often a barrier to using Edpuzzle.  In this case, I felt that it would probably have been the best tool to select as the comprehension checks can be interspersed interactively throughout the video clip.

          • I now see that the Clipchamp video is still refusing to appear in the slides I have posted. :cry: Obviously, this invalidates the whole exercise, such as it is! In fact, I have yet to be able to display a video :cry: on Storyline – despite, I think, four attempts – and I still do not know why this would be.

           

          I fear this experience does not bode well for when truly alone with the final assignment :unsure: . I am wondering if others are experiencing similar hold ups or whether it has all been plain sailing. Please excuse the monster screenshots!

            @azurial, sorry to hear of your video woes, but don’t despair, this can be part and parcel of the joys (!) of working with video. Different formats, editors etc all add their own little challenges to deal with.

            I’m not sure I can explain all the issues you’re having. However, one piece of advice would be to avoid using the Clipchamp embed option, especially in Storyline. Generally, I’ve found it’s better to upload video directly to things like Storyline rather than embedding. You should be able to download your Clipchamp video by clicking the export button in the top right and then selecting continue (see pic below):

             

            You can then upload the video to Storyline by going to Insert>Video>Video from File. This will give you a lot more control over the video size etc. Also, if you then want to reuse the same video on a different slide, you don’t have to reupload it, just go to Insert>Video>from Media Library and select the same video.

                Hi @David, thank you for this. I have started the whole process from scratch and followed your advice to the letter.  So, am now posting  to see if my video from last week will finally display. Fingers crossed…

                Update:  This has now been superceded – but I still don’t know how to delete this post or if that is possible ? Obviously that link did not work either!  Please ignore and see below, thanks

                  Hi again, @David and @Juliet, I am pleased to report that perseverance has finally paid off :yahoo: .  I have not only solved my editing issue but have at last got the video to display in Storyline :yahoo: .  Here is the updated version:

                  What aspect of creating the content was the most challenging?

                  Trying to remember all the steps that we had learnt only relatively recently.

                  How comfortable were you doing this activity with less guidance than in previous units?

                  Quite comfortable, knowing that we can’t really break anything. It’s actually nice to have a bit of creative freedom and to have to make choices.

                      Hi, Rob.  Just to mention I have put three comments on the review of your video but they are not displaying, for some reason.   I see they do appear in the ‘Feedback’ but not alongside Juliet’s comments.  No idea why this should be :unsure: I wonder if you ever saw them?
