I like to be very proactive with my data collection and analysis. I am going to talk you through some logistics that you should consider before you even begin coding. These logistics include:
1) Uploading videos – make it a daily procedure
2) Creating movie packages
3) Video size
4) Stacking videos*
5) Sorting your videos (by date? by student? by topic?, etc.) – Go back to your research questions!
6) Embracing the reference package
*If you are not sure how to stack videos (i.e., utilize multiple camera angles on one timeline), I describe this process in my August 15, 2013 post called “Stacking Videos”
