Penn State’s The Information Cycle as benchmark: Given a staff of one, what can be created along the lines of The Information Cycle? can it be created in Breeze instead of with Flash, Dreamweaver and Fireworks? can it be shorter? can it be made easy to update? can one easily create and insert an entertaining video clip?
Demos: Research Roller Coasters: using a variety of sources (geared to first-year students) Research Roller Coasters Roller Coaster “movie trailer” created with Microsoft Movie Maker Microsoft MovieMaker Click for video ↑ Click for tutorial ↑
How did they compare? Easy to update graphics and audio Current Topic: Hurricane Katrina Update time: less than 1 hour Still in the experimental stages, but has potential 1 librarian 3 weeks 3.44 minutes PowerPoint and Breeze Presenter Research Roller Coasters Somewhat dated: Subject: Columbine (last updated 2004) High quality 2 content developers 1 designer 1 program developer 6-months 9 minutes Flash, Dreamweaver and Fireworks The Information Cycle Updatable Resulting product Staff Production time Length Software
When is Flash a breeze? When one uses Breeze Presenter to convert a PowerPoint presentation to a Flash movie.
How does Breeze Presenter work? Create slides in PowerPoint Record audio narration Listen and edit narration as needed Publish to the hard-drive or Breeze Server for web access 1.Record Audio 2.Publish 3.Insert Flash 4.Create Quizzes 4 basic features:
1 Any added notes will serve as a script when you are ready to record.
When is Breeze not a breeze? If one creates a video Microsoft Movie Maker (like the roller coaster clip) and then attempts to insert that video into a PowerPoint presentation and publish In Breeze, numerous problems may arise: Continuous looping of the video and problems getting the video to stop without hitting Ctrl Alt Del PowerPoint slides would rearrange themselves in the Slide Sorter View The video would not reset itself back to the beginning until the presentation was closed and reopened Supposedly one can easily insert Flash video into Breeze. Microsoft MovieMaker
