CERN e-learning project

Tools' index

  • Project description here. It contains Use Cases and Content owners.
  • e-group here. Members can be viewed.
  • vidyo portal here. It can be used for any meeting or rehearsal.
  • Indico category dedicated to e-learning here.
  • CDS category dedicated to e-learning here
  • CERN e-learning logo in progress. Request sent by Maria Dimou to the CERN designer Fabienne Marcastel on 2016/01/20.

Points for speakers' preparation and recording set-up:

  • Create an event in the e-learning indico category for every rehearsal to keep trace of the process and notes for future use.
  • Write down every word you plan to say. Attach it to the relevant indico event.
  • Arrange with the CERN studio manager Jacques Fichet to borrow a teleprompter device or, at least, have someone showing you the written text while you speak in front of the camera (like the TV news).
  • Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse. Use colleagues familiar with the domain as public to obtain feedback.
  • Measure the time. Mini-tutorials should not exceed 5' to maintain audience attention. Dropping from 8' to 4' requires many rehearsals.
  • Check what is already available on the web, as examples to learn from.
  • Make sure everything you type in the video respects security rules. No personal emails, logins, passwords etc. The CERN IT recording team cannot edit video to blur text.
  • Avoid typing commands 'live'. Rather make slides, screenshots or web page tabs with the commands on.
  • Select the 16*9 landscape format for the slide dimension.
  • Make sure the web pages of the application you present are clear for new-comers. Else, talk to their webmasters before recording the tutorial.
  • Browser and terminal windows should be in one of the CERN official languages. Starting point should be a CERN web page.
  • If you present a tool that works on multiple Operating systems, make a generic introduction and shorter episodes per Operating System.
  • The camera should show the speaker first with a CERN picture in the background and then the slides, web pages and command lines of the tutorial.
  • Display the tailor-made CERN e-learning logo before starting and at tutorial closing.
