William Horn will again be leading the class, which will teach online students how to set goals for a video project, how to improve video quality, and how and where to publish completed videos. Horn is the paper’s technology manager.
Other topics include videoconferencing, video presentations, video editing, and publishing. Students will learn about video tools for both Windows and Macintosh computers.
All courses in The New York Times Knowledge Network are developed and taught by the paper’s journalists or professional staff.
The course starts on November 29th and runs to December 12, 2011. The cost is $90 and the only requirement is a familiarity with amateur video cameras. The course is made up of daily self-paced lessons, with three live sessions included for direct assistance from the teacher.
For businesses just getting started with online video that would like a little help and guidance, it looks like a worthwhile investment.
