Week 1 : Ice breaking Session and Overview of the Course

This is the first class on the very first week after quite a long holiday. Honestly I'm taking this course as an elective subject to fulfill the credit required for the Educational Technology course. But then, I felt so lucky because have given chance to learn new things. My  expectation for this course is to gain as much as possible the knowledge and skills about video and animation to be applied in the future.

Definition of Video and Animation


(adj.) (1) Refers to recording, manipulating, and displaying moving images, especially in a format that can be presented on a television.
(2) Refers to displaying images and text on a computer monitor. The video adapter, for example, is responsible for sending signals to the display device.
(n.) A recording produced with a video recorder (camcorder) or some other device that captures full motion.


A simulation of movement created by displaying a series of pictures, or frames. Cartoons on television is one example of animation. Animation on computers is one of the chief ingredients of multimedia presentations. There are many software applications that enable you to create animations that you can display on a computer monitor.

Different between video and animation

Note the difference between animation and video. Whereas video takes continuous motion and breaks it up into discrete frames, animation starts with independent pictures and puts them together to form the illusion of continuous motion.

Points to ponder: If a picture worth a thousand words..whats a video worth?
