Dear students, this one is more of a resource than a tool, but to keep things simple, I’ve included it in the series.

Moby has created a collection of music you can use in your project videos provided you keep things non-profit. The site is called Moby Gratis and is waiting for you here. Let me remind you that for your new media production adventures you can borrow a camera or other toys from Kai Mettler at the IRC.

Alternatively, you could go totally grass roots by using an Internet camera (the one you have for video chat). A simple way to do it would be to sign up for an account at Viddler, record your video by saving it directly on their site, then copy and embed the video on your site.

We already covered embedding media in class, but if you need some help, I’ll be happy to hear from you!

In this new series, I’ll introduce you to free/opensource software and web 2.0 services you can incorporate in your projects. You can search for “Tools of the Trade” posts in the “Resources” category.

To embed media from Viddler, click the “menu” button, select the “Embed” option from the menu above, choose “WordPress.com” and click “copy code.” Go to you WordPress editor, click “HTML” to the left of “Visual,” paste the code and hit the save button, which has been moved to the right in WordPress 2.5.

Best of luck!
