Oxford ASPIRE in partnership with Oxford University IT Services are pleased to present this free session for museum professionals on developing multimedia resources.
As museums engage an increasingly diverse online audience through their websites and social media, there is a growing need to share collections and knowledge online in new, dynamic and engaging ways. Museums are also increasingly playing the role of online education providers, fulfilling a demand for multimedia learning tools for teachers and students. This workshop aims to equip colleagues with the skills to create audio and video multimedia content for publication online to share collections knowledge and serve their expanding digital audiences.
The workshop will provide both training and practical sessions on using Audacity for audio editing and Movie Maker for video. It will also briefly cover creative commons issues and how to set up and manage a YouTube channel.
The session will be delivered by Stephen Eyre, a teacher for the IT Learning Programme at IT Services and co-ordinates their online presence and digital media teaching. He has used online presence extensively to promote the work of the Learning Programme and his own interests as a final year research student in experimental music and has taught across the multiple disciplines that make up this exciting area.
This session is aimed at beginners who are capable with standard office suites but have no experience of producing, editing and publishing audio and video files.
