In April of 2010, NDSU Extension Service’s Pocket Video Project put Flip Ultra HD video cameras in the hands of 16 staff members in an attempt to evaluate the effectiveness of pocket video cameras in increasing the use of online video as an educational tool by the NDSU Extension Service.
We wanted to see if the portability and ease-of-use pocket video cameras provided had an impact on the willingness of our extension specialist and educators to use online video for education.
We expected changes in our targeted group. What we didn’t expect was how this project impacted 4-H education, our Video Services unit and our organization as a whole.
In this session we’ll share our findings about the use of pocket video cameras in extension education and talk about some of the surprising changes this project sparked.
