Conferences, Presentations, Ideas and Tutorials caught on video camera...
I think its good for organisers of conferences and professional development events to video or audio record their conference presenters. This hasn't got to be a really professional job (although that is great as well) - I've seen lots of people capture conference presentations with a mobile phone camera or cheap handheld digital video recorder.
One of the nice things about being caught on camera is that you can then share the presentation with a wider audience. Recordings of presentations are also useful to go back and watch at a later date after you have had time to reflect on the content.
As a presenter it is also really useful as well - it is a way for us to get feedback and self-reflect so that we can improve for next time.
I've been caught on camera a few times over the past few years and OB TV is an attempt to try and bring all of the links to these presentations that exist over the web together in one space. You can find the full list on the bottom of the page. I've marked some of my favorites with a '- one to watch!' tag.
If your just looking for a sample of me speaking to an audience then this video recorded on Unlocking Learning: Computer Games in Education (from: Future of Technology in Education, London 2010) is a pretty good and well produced example.
