I spoke about Multimedia and the importance of web skills at The 71st Annual Canadian University Press Conference in Saskatoon. Here is my Presentation. Note that everything that is underlined in the presentation is a clickable link.
I spoke at MacEwan College back on November 14th about Multimedia and Soundslides. I tell my story as a Photojournalist, go through my portfolio, show some examples of audio slideshows that I have done and show how I edited and put them together with Audacity and Soundslides.
