Flip Camcorders Instructions

Bring your UVM ID to the Bailey-Howe Library Media center and pick up Camera bag with: 2 Flip Cameras, battery pack, & extra batteries.  

Two Camera Operators & Laptop Assistant: two responsible for the cameras, the other for transferring the recorded presentation to the laptop.

Student presenting gives their thumb drive (USB flash memory stick) to the Laptop Assistant.

Camera Operator with the Flip camera #1 records the first speaker's presentation (including questions).

When First speaker is finished take Flip #1 and give it to the Laptop Assistant (LA) or TA with the laptop.  The LA/TA with the laptop will transfer the first person's presentation to the laptop by plugging in the USB connection.  Meanwhile the other Camera Operator will begin recording the second presentation on Flip Camera #2. 

LA / TA:
-Save the file to a folder for this lab (for example 9September2013 folder). 
-Rename the file using this convention: StudentNameDateTypeOfPresentation.  So for example: JaneSmith6October2013Persuasive.
-After the file is saved, copy the file to the student's flashb drive.

Repeat with Camera #2 while camera #1 records the third speaker, etc.

After lab:
-Delete all videos from the Flip cameras
-Return Flip cameras to MediaServices in Bailey Howe Library & make sure they RECHARGE the battery pack
