In the course of the teaching online interactive video I have used a variety of tools. What has informed my practice is the appropriation and use of what I characterise as ‘ready to hand’ technologies, a ‘making do’. Currently the teaching and investigation of online interactive video is located in a second year Media subject known as Integrated Media One (but I’ve squirrelled it away in other places in the past, remember, ‘making do’). In my own practice I had relied on authoring in LiveStage Pro, probably the only program that made QuickTime’s programmatic architecture available. This is no longer available, and is too technical for the requirements of an undergraduate curriculum.
In 2010, 2011 and 2012 I have used Florian Thalhofer’s Korsakow system. In 2007, 2008, and 2009 I used eZedia QTi (now vapourware).
