Online Video Help Files

This isn't a final, final version yet... but if you would like to see the type of online video help files we are developing, take a preview peek at this one on ebooks (featuring yours truly.) We still have some wrinkles (no pun intended), like closed captioning and creating a web page to host the videos, etc. Coming soon... Librarian Jane Smith explains what sources to use for research, Librarian Martina Nicholas explains how to make an interlibrary loan request, and Librarian Cathy Rudowsky explains how to log in to a database from off-campus. This project is part of a funded TLTR grant proposal. If you have any constructive criticism, feel free to post a comment below.

How long should this take to download? I've been on 5 min & am still less than 25% downloaded. Is there a way to compress the video for quicker download? I'll let it download now & view it later.

OK...I stopped the download & tried again. On the second attempt it was quicker. About 2 min. to download. I thoroughly enjoyed the video! I liked seeing Melba. What a neat idea!

When the project is completed, various options will be available for downloading, according to your connection speed. This is just a test.
