CLONMEL HOTSPOT -- One of the goals in the Writing Skills course is to observe first-hand and then to quickly share those observations through personalcasting. We have adopted "St Patrick's Day in Ireland" as one theme. Some short extracts appeared earlier as text comments. Effective personalcasting also involves recorded sound, accomplished today by integrating an MP3 to a SWF. Production time constrains us to individual five minute sections where we write bullet lists, record snippets, export them through software, and upload them to the Internet. Five minutes time is less than many people use to find the loo and return to their pub seat after the parade on Patrick's Day, so it's an effective benchmark. This is our first attempt at time-limited personalcasting, so the results reflect our baby steps, appearing at lunchtime.
