I was a single parent for a week, and wow, I’m glad I don’t have to do that full time.
Fixing vertical video is quick and easy with Camtasia. In the video above I show how to go about correcting it while still getting a full screened video.
Drafting is a type of communication that engineers and manufactures use in order show how an object goes together or what it looks like. There is a specific way that these drawings are made. In general, there are three basic items show in the drawing: front view, right view, and top view. In the video below I show what each of the views communicates and how they are setup on a page.
When you begin to learn drafting, you have to learn about the different types of lines. Line types are extremely important because they are used to communicate different ideas about an object. In the video below we review the three basic types of lines that are necessary to understand when you are beginning to learn about drafting.
Three types of lines
Visible or Object Lines
Dark thick lines that show the outside edges of an object.
Light lines that are drawn to help place other lines on a drawing. They eventually get erased.
Dashed lines that show parts of an object that cannot be seen from the current viewing angle. Hidden lines exist to show engineers and manufactures that there are features on an object that exist but can’t be shown through another means at the current angle.
Graphic communication is something that happens every day without us even realizing it. In the video above we look at graphic communication and how humans have used symbols and other image-based items for thousands of years to transfer their thoughts and feelings to others.
In this week’s vlog I talk about failure and how my son, age 13 months, has the best approach to failure that I have ever seen. If only I could instill his spirit in my students and myself, that would be something.
Something that I have found myself needing to do from time to time is to link a slide in a Google Slide presentation to another slide. During our Back to School Night I wanted to make a single presentation, since most of the info is the same, but be able to switch from class to class seamlessly. Linking slides to other slides was the way I decided to tackle the problem. Below is a video on how to do it.
I often rewatch TV shows much to my wife’s annoyance. And on of the things that bugs me about Amazon Video is that it doesn’t do a very good job of remembering what you watched last if you are going through a show again. I looked over several blogs and Amazon support pages and there isn’t a setting that allows you to reset what you have watched.
I read about a few different “solutions” and some worked better than others. In the video above I show and describe the solution that worked best and quickest for me.
