Creating videos and animations for Research and Teaching
From Andy Tattersall
Animation is increasingly used as a complementary and effective way to communicate research and teach students. Whilst it might seem a bit daunting to try and make your own animations and videos, thanks to new and fairly low cost animation platforms it is possible to make short snappy videos with guidance and training.
The purpose of this short workshop will be to show attendees some of these tools and how best to use them. You will learn tips and shortcuts on how to create your own videos and how best to maximise their impact after production. We will look at hosting platforms and how best to share your new animations online.
Please note: you do not need any specialist animation and video creation skills to attend this workshop
