Video Subtitling Made Simple

If I had to choose between Articulate, Camtasia, PowerPoint, Captivate and Adobe Presenter for the ease of creating eLearning content, I would probably always go with Camtasia, with PowerPoint in a close second. Back in May 2020, around the time the world fell apart, I posted a blog titled One Cannot Live by Camtasia AloneContinue reading “Video Subtitling Made Simple”

Signing out

This week I was talking with family members about their last wills and testament, final plans and all the sorts of topics that no one wants to think about (but everyone has to). Most of the important documents are filed with the local court, or notarized or in some other manner made legal for futureContinue reading “Signing out”

Let me “Hollo” atcha

Not to start this post on a negative note but, I loathe video meetings. I will agree that it is a good alternative to meet with family, friends and especially colleagues at work and yes, I do use it. However, as a tested and approved introvert, I find it difficult to be stared at onContinue reading “Let me “Hollo” atcha”

Muting the File Sharing Worries

Recently I decided to add a BitLocker password encryption to the hard drive of my PC and also on an external hard drive that serves as a backup drive. It’s a pretty simple process and as long as I memorize my passwords, then I feel secure that my data will be protected in the eventContinue reading “Muting the File Sharing Worries”

There, but not really

At the beginning of the pandemic, some very creative young people figured out how to record a desktop video and have it loop during their virtual classes. It seems that the idea was also found to be useful in professional spaces, likely by people tired of sitting through online meetings. The idea caught on, atContinue reading “There, but not really”

Not so new but Calendly keeps it moving

Fortune magazine told the story of Nigerian Tope Awotona’s voyage to get Calendly off the ground. Fast forward a few years and the app is a global business staple. For years, I have used Microsoft, Yahoo and Google products for scheduling meetings. The choice between the three options was made based on whom I wasContinue reading “Not so new but Calendly keeps it moving”

Get Your Lost (or Stolen) Stuff Back

Thieves don’t like to be caught, and the worst ones usually aren’t. I was traveling in Europe one summer and a thief grabbed the bookbag of one of the students traveling with my group. Nobody saw the thief or heard anything and the bag’s owner (another college student) only put it down “for a second”Continue reading “Get Your Lost (or Stolen) Stuff Back”

Big Brother is Watching

Depending on your age and perhaps, the politics of your local school board, the first time you probably read or heard the phrase, “Big brother is watching” was in the book (or the movie!) by George Orwell called 1984. In the movie, the citizens were being monitored by the government to keep everyone in theirContinue reading “Big Brother is Watching”

Do you speak Tutnese?

Hashesquatlulo! Wackelulcashomume tuto Tutwacko Tutalulkuck LulPubSus! “Hello! Welcome to Two Talk LPS!” in Tutnese When I was elementary school, I dreaded the Black history lectures, even though they were short. Most of the lectures were limited to slavery and civil rights, and I felt small and insignificant until the topic turned to Dr. Martin LutherContinue reading “Do you speak Tutnese?”
