A brief(?) history of information competency at a California community college

In the beginning When I first started teaching Library 4, a 1-unit information competency course (in CA community colleges we call information literacy information competency) in 2005, there was just one section offered per semester and I barely had 5-10 students per class. The college let me teach it because I needed the experience since I was a very...

My first time lapse with miniature effect video

I decided to try the miniature filter effect on my Lumix GX85 on a rainy day in Long Beach, CA.  I saw an opportunity when I found an Irish pub with a balcony overlooking 2nd Street.  It was raining and I was standing in ankle deep water when I tried to set this up. I forgot a lot of things like turning off autofocus and determining shutter speed. Oh...

San José Pillow Fight, 2019

I continue to work on my video skills and put myself to the test with this event. I had to deal with a lot of movement and I was having a hard time focusing quickly.

Playing with my new Lumix GX85

I took my new Lumix GX85 to the local park to test out the video and the two”kit” lenses that came with it.  I was ready to have a very frustrating experience due to my lack of movie making skills. Even though I had a bit of a time focusing, I think it came out pretty well for my first try. I edited in Camtasia since that is the only video editing software...

Open Access and OER: The Nuts and Bolts

This is one of my videos explaining the difference between Open Access and OER to students. It was one of my assignments for the Creative Commons Certificate for Librarians course in fall 2018. While it is long, I am still going to keep it and may make it available to students who are interested in … Continue reading "Open Access and OER: The Nuts and...

Creative Commons assignment on Remixes and Collections

Thanks to my Creative Commons instructor, Maran Wolston, I made a slight edit to my description of Collections below.  I hope this serves as a pretty good explanation on the difference between a remix and a collection under Creative Commons licensed works.
