Flipping update

[2018-08-10 Fri]

As I wrote in an earlier post, I'm planning to flip my lectures for next year. I'm currently in the act of recording videos for my lectures. After experimenting with a number of different techniques for this over the years, I've finally hit on a setup I like that works well with Linux: I try to record for a couple of minutes and then stop and start again, splicing the clips together using flowblade.

This is what my desktop looks like while I'm recording:

Vokoscreen is the small program in the top left and I have a terminal window open below it so that I can delete unwanted clips/bloopers immediately. The xournal file is open on the right. If you want your windows to tile like this, I can highly recommend a tiling windows manager like i3 or xmonad (I use i3). The weird blue area with the red circle segments shows you which area of the screen is being captured by vokoscreen.

This is proving much quicker and more effective than my previous attempts, which used ExplainEverything on an iPad.
