I was wondering what you all thought of learning designs pertaining to English language teaching? What are the ways in which you design your lessons to achieve better learning in your students?Continue

I'll have to reupload this! ugh! I joined and made an almost complete version of this classic. But alas...ning won't convert it properly.

The 3 parts are in the stories folder! Just scroll down once you click the stories folder..... I'm teaching right now but will upload this later today...

Ellen replied......

I feel your pain, David... only someone else who has done it can believe the hours all this uploading, downloading, editing and converting can take. Especially the converrting (fiting into 100 mB, getting the video into a file type that your video editor will recognize... ugh!)

As far as the stories folder goes, it has the Sting verion, parts 1, 2 & 3, but not Parts 1 & 2 of the Academy Award version...

One converting tip I've found when working with full length films... convert it into .mov

It will produce the smallest file size (outside of SWF) while preserving quality.

At least I think this is true... by the time I am done with these files, I am a bit dazed and confused. Also, I've taken to just throwing everything into an avi file when editiing. My two editing programs, each with their pluses and minuses (WMV and Camtasia), handle avi files well.

Well, three video editing programs, I have quicktime pro too, which is good for a quick chopping of a mov file... pretty blunt, though.

Adele does not understand why I don't use Final Cut pro. All I can say is I'd have to find a torrent and deal with any glitches I get in the program, then I'd have to learn it, and it is one more program to get into my head! But maybe that is the solution to these conversion woes....

Success and no success. No matter what way I mashed together the parts and compressed, Ning wouldn't convert it properly! I tried Videopad. Also, Avidemux.... don't have Quick Time pro but also tried others... Avidemux usually works well for mp4 (and is free, open source).

I hear you about TIME...took me ages but I was stubborn. But alas, no when to call it a day. I hope others enjoy this (I know you will/have). It is wonderful, a work of art. Also, so many possibilities for speaking, language teaching, writing, role plays etc...
