I'd love to hear from others what tips or suggestions they have for organizing their videos. I'll share a few right here...
I use the flip video to record my Math Recovery teaching. I also write all of my lesson plans in Microsoft Word. To organize my files, I put a hyperlink in my lesson plan that takes me directly to the video of the corresponding lesson. That way, when I'm looking at that lesson, I can just click on the hyperlink and the video starts playing. To put a hyperlink in a word file, do the following:
(1) Highlight the word or words you'd like to become the hyperlink
(2) Type ctrl-K OR go to Insert -> Hyperlink
(3) A dialogue box should open. Chose the name of the desired video or file
(4) The words should become blue & underlined
Just be sure not to move or change the name of the files. If you do, your hyperlink will no longer work.
I also like to start the title of my videos with the date in the "year_month_date" format. For example, a video taken on July 3 in 2008 would be labeled "2008_07_03_...." This keeps my videos in chronological order.
I'd love to hear what others are doing.
