Week 2 of the 2009 K-12 Online Conference begins in about seven hours, and our co-conveners are making last minute updates to “pre-flight” the presentation posts which will “go live” on the K-12 Online Conference blog next week following the published order on our conference schedule. For the second year, we are using Blip.tv to make m4v / iPod friendly video versions of presentations, as well as mp3 / audio-only versions. This year, however, we asked presenters to DIRECTLY upload their presentations to both Blip and DotSub following provided instructions. In some cases, the checkboxes to request presentation file conversion to m4v and mp4 formats was not made at the time files were uploaded, but with a PRO Blip.tv account this is not a problem. These conversions can be requested later. Tonight, to share these steps with our other conference co-conveners, I recorded a four minute screencast simply using my web browser, Java, and the free website Screenr. This is the result, which I added to our convener “presentation pre-flighting” instructions on our conference wiki.
