ONE OF THE most valuable experiences we can give to a third level student is the ability to seek and find career information online. We contribute to that initiative when our creative multimedia students develop credible profiles on LinkedIn. Continue reading

CAROLL SPINNEY, the puppeteer behind Big Bird, did an AMA on Reddit in which he passed along "a very sad story". It's worth repeating. Continue reading

SOME OF OUR best creative minds will jump directly from an Ordinary Degree into the workplace. As someone who needed six years from high school to a professional career, I’m passionate about how graduates enter today's digitally-enhanced space. I personally believe many of our current graduates need more than a college degree to do well. Continue reading

Sara Jo Chipps appeared in my social media flow the other day, tweeting about sexual and racist jokes in the workplace. I've saved her string of tweets because I have three daughters who have to navigate work centres where they might not control the demeanour of those places. Continue reading

I'VE LISTENED TO Peter Thiel, the entrepreneur and venture capitalist, on several occasions. I'm certain the creative multimedia students in our Emerging Trends module will learn as much as I have so we're dissecting Thiel's Zero to One: Notes on Startups as part of an exercise in building for the future.

WHILE HEARING MOANING from brands and marketing teams after Facebook changed its newsfeed algorithm, I noticed videos I upload to Facebook quickly ramp up to more views than I have real friends. The screenshot shows what happened on a lazy Sunday morning after I uploaded a 10-minute newsround to Facebook. Continue reading

ON THE HEELS of another ICT in Education Conference, I noticed the biggest cross-talk and sharing is happens when images or videos are shared. Knowing that behaviour, I'm going to try to upload a sketch a day onto my InsideView blog. Continue reading

IRELAND'S ICT in Education Conference pointed a laser at the fabric of future classrooms during a series of presenations and workshops. But I think many of the educators watching the day's events in Thurles could easily have missed what several prognosticators were saying about trends involving hardware and software. Continue reading

WEEKS OF HEAVY archiving have shown me real value in a workflow involving Microsoft OneNote and Office Lens on Lumia. The workflow is like having a high resolution OCR scanner in your pocket. Continue reading

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LOOK far to find start-ups that sputtered and died when their core business processes depended upon access to Twitter's firehose or APIs. All Twitter had to do is change how a business could access its API and a complementary business would fold. Twitter's example has been followed by a number of other businesses, including Audioboom. Continue reading

IF YOU'RE INTERESTED in how to enhance your classroom skills as a teacher, you should head over to the registration page of the ICT in Education Conference and join 100 others who will meet in LIT-Thurles to "make, bake and take" away clever ideas. It's part of a long-running series of professional development talks and workshops held for the benefit of teachers everywhere. Continue reading

IT IS EASY to forget things that happen before their time and Qik's livestreaming service is one of them. We first started covering live events with Qik running on Symbian phones in 2009 and made the process part of the creative multimedia degree programme in Tipperary Institute. Continue reading

AVIATION DISASTERS, like the recent unfortunate loss of Germanwings 4U9525, sadden me and cause me to rewind back through human factors I investigated while a Flight Safety Officer with the US Air Force. Today, I'm thinking a lot about the way the Airbus cockpit is protected from entry. [1] Continue reading

LIKE MANY OF the clever teachers I've met in Ireland, I know I will enjoy the Maker Meet scheduled for Friday, April 24, 2015, on the campus of LIT-Thurles. It's run by Mags Amond and Bianca Ni Ghrogain and an essential part of a weekend involving the ICT in Education Conference and Workshops. Continue reading

ONE OF APPLE'S shortcomings is the company's steadfast resistance to sharing content between devices and that weak area causes headaches any time the extended family comes together with photos to share. Fortunately, there are apps that help circumvent Apple's failure at Bluetooth. I have set up sync settings into shared cloud services with the family iPhones, Galaxies and Lumias. We share OneDrive and Flickr albums which means each handset owner can see photos and videos snapped and recorded by others. The weak link in this whole synchronised setup is data services. Some of the family use their smartphones without any mobile data and depend upon my Huawei MiFi to give them free and open internet access for sharing in the cloud. That is alright with me. [Bernie Goldbach also serves as curator of family photo collections.] Continue reading

I USED MY Lumia 1520 to record our activities during St Patrick's Day 2015 and the HD video recording alongside HQ audio recording consumed more than 10 MB of storage for every minute I recorded--all to produce the YouTube clip below the break. I need to clean out space on the handset and perhaps get a larger micro SD card. Continue reading

Snapped over the shoulder of tricaster camera at Robocode.I SAW THE benefit of taking my third level creative multimedia students on field trips during the live streaming and photo documentation of Ireland's Robocode 2015 competition. And I remain firmly convinced that without such immersive experiences the real world skills of third level graduates never extend beyond the theory phase. Our third year creative multimedia students have supported Robocode competitions ever since our Tipperary campus began hosting the national competition in 2004. We bring an HD camera crew and roaming digital still photography into the venue to support live streaming and photographic documentation. We need to extend the method of our social media coverage because during the past two years our students' use of Twitter has declined with a rise in the use of closed groups on Facebook. While the memories are still fresh, I am asking specific cohorts of PR and social media students to document media collateral associated with the running of Robocode and Games Fleadh on the Thurles campus. The cross-talk that emerges will form the basis of a planning document for Games Fleadh 2016. It will set the foundation for a fresh channel of internal communications. And... Continue reading
