Blended Learning is the new way of teaching.
Every class in the Instructional Technology I have learned so many new different ways to use technology. In ETEC 676 I learn how to create videos. The first thing is to tell a story, in my first iMovie I ask my sister if I could borrow some of the pictures from her wedding and I let her know that I was going to create a little movie with her pictures and she loved the idea. First I wrote her story on how my sister meet her husband, I organized the picture in chronological order then I upload them in to my mac and using iMovie. I was able to add transitions and music another tool that I used was audacity, I was able to record her story. I had to buy the rights to the song I used for this movie, then I upload it to you tube. It’s a simple process but it just takes time. In ETEC 676 I learned Different ways to capture audio, different audio formats, learn to use audacity, noise removal effect, import music and audio in to the movie and use special effects. I learn a lot about copy right and how to get royalty free services. Using QuickTime help in my last project. in this class I learn about the different audio files like .WAV, .AIFF, .Ogg Vorbis, .flac, .mp4a and ,MP3 all this was new to me, but now I am able to record my voice or make a movie just using my iPhone and my MAC.
