Open Video London Course Sprint
18 - 20 April 2013 MS Stubnitz Canary Wharf Tubestation Montgomery Street Wood Wharf E14 9SB London, UK
The workshop / course sprint (facilitator: Mick Fuzz) is part of the international Open Video series launched with the Open Video Forum in 2012. The current version of the course is part of the School of Open, a collaboration between Creative Commons and P2P University.
Open Educational Resources
Our goal is to produce an introductory course for open video in the areas of end-user technologies (viewing, encoding, editing, subtitling etc) and developer tools (transcoding, web applications, developing for mobile devices).
This course will be promoted as open educational resource (OER). It will promoted specifically to support film and developer networks in Africa (see Open Video Sudan, Mokolo). As the course is openly licensed it will be available for widespread use.
We are looking for people who have an awareness of free software / open source tools and / or open frameworks involved in video and experience in communicating to learners. As such, desirable skills include one or many of the following:
- Knowledge of Open Video for end user technologies or software development
- Writing skills in the area of educational resources* Experience of delivering workshops
- Connections to relevant networks to disseminate our work
Would you be interested in attending? Please get back to us if you think you may be able to attend and we will inform you about the process and logistics of this course sprint. You get to be part of an ongoing effort to bring more people (especially from newer netcultures) into free software / open source debates around visual media via the creation of open educational resources (courses will be translated). And finally, p2p education is perhaps the most significant change in the way (higher) education is organized - let's make it work.
