Changing Timelines After Changing Code Windows: Code Row Colors

I got a great question in an email and I wanted to address it on my blog.  As we make changes to our code windows, we will find that we have already coded videos with timelines that now need to be updated.  While you can use a simple ‘Find/Replace’ command to change the text of the code and label names, what do you do to change the colors of the rows if you change button colors?  In this video I show you how to quickly change row colors in the timeline.  If someone else has a faster solution that does not involve changing the colors row by row, please let me know 🙂


Why Labels? Part 2

Here is the second part to my “Why Labels?” post.

After this I will move into constructing another code window for my dissertation analysis.  I know the task of building a code window from scratch can be daunting, so watching the process in a “think-aloud” can be helpful. As always, if anyone has some specific things they would like to see, including examples of scripting or linking, I would be happy to give it a try for you!

Why Labels? Part 1

Thank you to those of you who stopped by my presentation at CEC TED in Indianapolis last week 🙂 Between my dissertation, job hunting, and two back-to-back conferences, my Studiocode blogging has been minimal lately.  I was excited to be able to talk about my research using Studiocode with so many people at TED!

Beyond research, something in which special education institutions are particularly interested, is documenting and measuring pre-service teaching practices of students.  I am going to be working with a local college to use Studiocode software to make a reflective tool for this purpose.  In my discussions with people from other institutions about how I use Studiocode to tag behaviors, one question that has come up is why it is so important to be able to add labels inside codes.  Other software can tag things in a video, but not all have the layered label within code ability that I frequently use.  In this screencast I show Part 1 of my video on why this is important.  I didn’t want to make this video too long, so I will post another video soon. 🙂
