I too agreed Taylor Swift’s performance was good and that the banter provided by the medium is always insightful.

Some other great series are: La Blogothèque’s Take Away Shows and Triple J’s Like a Version.

Bookmarked Video in situ by an author (John Stewart)

There are a few programs playing with instructional video in really interesting ways. At OU, we have moved away from back-of-the-class lecture capture, producing instead sets of short videos where the instructor explains the key concepts. We have built a light screen so instructors can write like the would on a white board while looking into the camera and talking to the students. I think this takes us passed the poor substitution standard and into augmentation.

John Stewart reflects on the way in which the La Blogothèque website / YouTube channel redefines the video experience, creating new and unique possibilities. He wonders if the same changes could be incorporated into the filming of educational videos for blended and online courses, in particular, the possibilities for capturing field work. I have written about the Take Away Shows before, discussing the possibility of redefining the whole pedagogical experience. The reference to capturing field work reminds me of an early Google Glass exercise capturing CERN.

It was in Oct. 2016, in Berlin, during Michelberger Music. Between each show of the festival, we were kidnapping a person in the audience, which we were taking to a secret room where an artist was waiting. Between the two of them, a unique experience : a One To One concert.

There were seven performances recorded, featuring artists such as Bon Iver:

And Damien Rice:

There is something about the space of these performances that is really captivating. I imagine that watching these performances would be hard.
