The Marketing Community Working Group (MWG) has been working on a project to write scripts and record Open edX How-To videos for instructors. Most scripts are now ready, and the next step will be to record the videos. I wrote a few scripts, and was chosen as a participant to record 5 how-to videos.
The MWG debated for months on how exactly the videos should be produced. Some members were in favor of making the videos from home (I was in the “do-it-from-home” camp), and others were in favor of producing the videos in a more professional setting – which is made possible thanks to an offer by Open edX providers IBL, who offered their studio and services to record the videos.
Following a group vote, it was determined that we would opt for the professional route, with IBL’s contribution. Therefore, IBL will be in Boston a few days ahead of the 2023 Conference with professional, mobile studio equipment to record the videos with the participants. The recordings are scheduled for Sat March 25, Sun Mar 26, and Mon Mar 27.
The issue here is that I’m not available at those dates I will not be attending the conference in Boston this year (because of the budget), and I’ve made other travel arrangements as a consequence. The MWG is therefore looking for someone else to go to Boston and record the videos, and have asked me to ask around if anyone’s interested. The time spent doing this would count towards contribution hours, so logically it would have to be a Core Contributor.
tCRIL will be covering the cost of the participants’ accommodation and meals during the recording period (3 days), but not flights (the idea is that participants were flying to Boston anyway). Aside from @Fox and @jill, we don’t know yet who will be going to Boston, so this is a bit tricky. Anyway, is anyone up for it?
