The Gamer - A video demo


Well, for what it's worth, here's my own lightning version of The Gamer scenario discussed below, for showing to students. As my colleague, Tim, suggested, I chose one of my less exciting versions of the scenario as a demo piece (not murder or abduction by aliens etc.) otherwise I suspect some of the less confident won't be "able" to think of another version. My stopwatch tells me the whole process, including sound recording, webcam video, finding and downloading and editing took me about an hour and a quarter. The gaming footage (captured Friday lunchtime - thanks Matt) was recorded, using the free screen capture software Camstudio, in about 5 minutes. So it should be possible for students to do this in three hours, although whip-cracking may well be needed...
