Between April 18-20, Mick Fuzz from Floss Manuals facilitates a workshop / course sprint to document and publish an introductory course for open video in the areas of end-user technologies (viewing, encoding, editing, subtitling etc) and developer tools (transcoding, web applications, developing for mobile devices). See the event schedule here
Open Video London will be held aboard MS Stubnitz which is currently moored at Wood Wharf in London Docklands. Contributions will come from those already swimming in the sea of free software / open source tools, open video frameworks and creating innovative learning.
It’s part of the international Open Video series launched with the Open Video Forum in 2012. The current version of the course, created at a Berlin sprint last year, is part of the School of Open, a collaboration between Creative Commons and P2P University.
Join us in an ongoing effort to bring more people (especially from newer netcultures) into free software / open source debates around visual media via the creation of open educational resources (courses will be translated).
Please get in touch soon if you interested and think you may be able to attend, we’ll cover accommodation, meals, and can help with travel expenses. firstname.lastname@example.org
