B.Y.O.L.® (Bring Your Own Laptop®) sessions ensure that you receive in-depth, hands-on training, and while following along with the instructor step-by-step.

This session examines ways of capturing and editing video using mobile devices that can reduce the cost, time, and people involved in video projects. Instructional videos designed for online delivery and videos designed to be viewed in mobile device’s smaller screens or embedded into instructional activities will have smaller streaming file sizes. You must compress and resize high-quality HD video to produce these smaller videos, so now you’ll learn to create videos already compressed and ready for smaller screen sizes by capturing the instructional video directly from a mobile device.

This BRING YOUR OWN MOBILE DEVICE session will examine how you can accomplish video capturing, editing, and distribution using an iPhone, smartphone, tablet, and/or iPad2 (or higher) with video functionality. The session discusses video-related apps and basic video composition techniques for smaller screens; it focuses on the process and not the specific device or app. You’ll then participate in a simple demonstration of capturing, editing, and uploading videos directly on a mobile device.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to capture video from your mobile device
  • Ways to import video into mobile editing software
  • How to add titles and graphics to your video
  • Methods of adding audio to your video
  • How to share your video with others
