There are many low end video devices to record student work to post to the web. Will Richardson is talking about the Flip Video in his blog http://weblogg-ed.com/2007/testing-flip-video/
I would like to test out the two devices with the class (FLIP and AIPTEK). One advantage to the AIPTEK model, I can record to a memory card and have multiple cards for students to use. It appears the Flip model would require students to pull their video immediately from the camera so another student could use.
Do you have a digital camera that will let you record a video? Try taking the video off the camera and saving to a computer. We can experiment with this in our next class.
