otherwise titled: technology is not for the faint-hearted
So today I did my first facetime live &, I hate to admit it, but it sucked big time!
- not because I hadn’t prepared – I spent all day yesterday preparing.
- not because I didn’t know my material – I’ve spent decades becoming an expert in my field.
- not because I forgot to set my alarm – I was there 50 minutes before I was due to start, checking, testing, double checking!
None of those things. I simply bit off more than I could chew. In my great wisdom I decided to go all fancy-pants & try to setup screen-share so I could visually show what I was teaching about.
It was to be a power session called “Let’s Talk Images” file formats | file size | file quality & it’s pretty hard to show the difference between vectors & bitmaps by voice alone!
I think I did okay, people said they learned a lot even without the video, but right at the end I found out my screen share wasn’t working so no-one could see what I was doing or showing! GRRRRR
& there’s always a but isn’t there? The good thing is that it has meant that I’ve cut out all the dodgy bits out with quick & dirty editing & can now make it available for all my favorite peeps to see.
Watch the video below & if you have questions or comments ask away at the bottom of the page in the comments.
NOTE: I did this before I got my almighty Yeti microphone so turn your volume up!
