As I blogged a few days ago in Going Live with Dual Broadcast I have implemented a new system for much of my online content – Dual Broadcasting. Well Tuesday saw the first session delivered with the new system.
As many of you will know my day job involves delivering hours of live online training every week. Most of this takes place via the fantastic Adobe Connect conferencing platform. Adobe Connect is an industry standard and feature rich but increasingly attendees are requesting more flexibility in the way they consume my output.
Well this week sees the adoption of a completely new delivery system for a large percentage of my online output – Dual Broadcasting.
As usual the release of a new version of OS X proved too tempting to ignore and I downloaded it within minutes of the end of Apple’s keynote announcing it’s immediate availability.
Since Apple introduced iBooks Author and the concept of an iBook I have eagerly awaited their arrival on the desktop. The ability to access the same content as available on my iPad was great enough but the promise that all my highlights and notes would seamlessly sync between devices was the cherry on top.
I’ve been using HandBrake for many years with varying degrees of success if I’m honest.
With the launch of MacBitesLearning.co.uk in late 2011, 2012 saw me increase the amount of video content I produce radically. After struggling with several other solutions while at the same time lamenting the demise of VisualHub I returned to HandBrake and determined that this time I would beat it in to submission … metaphorically at least!
This is a short piece I wrote for The Learning Professional Network’s All Things Apple Group reviewing Apple’s year in 2012.
