This week Cecilia and took a few hours and completed one of our goals for this semester: creating a tutorial video for using Prism. Not only did this turn out to be surprisingly fun (due mostly to Cecilia’s amazing antics), but it also added a few more skills to the list of things we have learned through Praxis.
First—though this might seem trivial– we got to draw upon out teaching skills, devising a plan for how to teach someone to use Prism in under three minutes. I authored the tutorial, and thanks to some great ad lib from Cecilia, I think the tutorial manages to capture the playful attitude with which we have approached our work and which we hope Prism engenders.
In addition, we learned how to use the iShowU HD software program. Admittedly, this is a very user-friendly program which allows you to record an area on your screen as a video. Still, it has left us with one more skill which we can confidently claim for our own.
And finally, and perhaps most importantly, we got to use this awesome microphone. Need I say more?
The launch of Prism is just around the corner. In the mean time, check out our tutorial here!
