Watch Your Speech Online: A Web-Based Video Management System for Public Speaking Courses

Wednesday, March 10 | 2:15PM–3:15PM | West Prefunction Area
Session Type: Professional Development
Students in public speaking courses learn a great deal by viewing and assessing video recordings of their performances. This poster session will describe a system that enables instructors to easily post videos of student speeches as podcasts, which students can view on the web, as well as on iPods, iPhones, and other portable media players. Instructors use small flash-memory digital cameras to record student speeches, then upload the videos to a customized installation of Podcast Producer 2 (PP2), part of Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server. The specific advantages and disadvantages of PP2 over other methods of distributing speech videos on the web will be discussed.
