The next Steeple workshops will take place 24th/25th March, in
conjunction with the OER10 conference in Cambridge (22nd-24th March).
The workshops cover video processing, capture, and podcasting enabled
by the Opencast Matterhorn. Matterhorn is an open source project
working within the Opencast Community to develop an end-to-end, open
source platform that supports the scheduling, capture, managing,
encoding and delivery of educational audio and video content, see
If you've been thinking about how to scale your podcasting efforts,
getting onto iTunesU or YouTube Edu, publishing lectures, etc you'll
find these workshops useful!
On the 24th we're offering an introductory half-day workshop (taking
place in the afternoon, aimed at people attending the conference,
which closes mid-day on the 24th). On the 25th, we're offering a more
in-depth whole-day workshop. The workshops are funded by JISC through
the Steeple BR program (see http://www.steeple.org.uk), and are free
to attend for UK HE institution members. There will be opportunities
to continue the engagement with Steeple and Matterhorn beyond these
workshops, and the Steeple team is able to provide tailored support
for UK HE institutions.
