Description
In the VILA/DIGHUMLAB Online Course in Collecting Audiovisual Data, you will get a fundamental understanding of and best practice for how to collect audiovisual data. While video cameras are pervasive in most people’s lives today, it still requires careful planning and technical knowledge to capture quality video footage for research projects. In some cases, people believe that a smartphone is sufficient for capturing video footage for research projects. Others tend to neglect the fact that it is crucial to select a suitable microphone for a research project, while some people only use one camera to capture extremely complex interaction. In this online course, we will give you a basic understanding of how to collect audiovisual data in the best possible way. Keep in mind that you design a setup for the particular situation. Upon course completion, participants receive a diploma.
