How To: Add video to evernote #sportfolio using #videotagger and video slimmer apps

Below is the step by step guide on how I used video tagger and video slimmer to create student filmed skills highlight clips. Both apps are available on the itunes store.

  1. Open the App ‘Video Tagger’
  2. Tap the settings cog at (top right corner)
  3. The video is only recorded for the time before you press the left or right button (lead in time) to the time after you press the left or right button (lead out button) – This will make more sense once you start recording.
  4. Title the ‘left’ and ‘right’ buttons the skills or tactics you want to capture (eg dribbling and shooting) – Your teacher will advise you what to enter here
  5. Set the video quality to medium
  6. Tap ‘back’
  7. Tap record – Remember the iPod will only store the video when you tap one of the two buttons either side of the record button
  8. When you have finished recording your required skills/tactics tap ‘stop’
  9. The video will now ‘process’ – This may take a minute
  10. A small thumbnail picture will appear at the bottom right of the screen. Tap it
  11. You will be taken to the ‘Library’
  12. Tap ‘save’ on the video you want to keep.
  13. Success! Saved to camera roll.
  14. Open the ‘evernote’ app (green elephant) from the PE folder and make sure that no one is signed in
  15. Open the ‘video slimmer’ app from the PE folder
  16. Tap ‘Video Source’ at the bottom menu
  17. Tap the ‘+’ button (top right corner)
  18. Select the video(s) you want to compress and tap ‘done’ (top right hand corner)
  19. Tap the red button ‘Slim Now!’
  20. If you have more than 1 video and want to merge then tick the check box
  21. Success à Tap OK
  22. The video you just compressed will be highlighted blue. I would like you to add your video to your sportfolio by tapping the share button (arrow at top right corner)
  23. Tap ‘Open in…’
  24. Tap the Evernote icon (now hand the ipod to the person you filmed so they can add to their sportfolio – you will take their place on a team and they will now film a student)
  25. ‘Sign in’ to Evernote with your username and password
  26. Your video will be automatically added to a new note
  27. Title the note: Sport, Skill, Term, Year Eg. Basketball Dribbling Term 3 2013
  28. Close the note
  29. Log out of Evernote
