"BoB is an off-air recording and media archive service. BoB is available to staff and students of member institutions of the British Universities Film & Video Council that hold an ERA+ license. This TV scheduling service allows you to record TV and radio programmes that are scheduled to be broadcast over the next seven days as well as retrieving programmes from the last seven days from a selected list of recorded channels."
Following a merger, Hull College supported staff in using more video resources to avoid inconsistencies in teaching methods. Staff confidence in technology has increased through creating resources themselves and supporting students filming what they are learning. Learner confidence and self-evaluation has improved. The College shares best practice during cross college training.
"At the top of my list these days is an app called TouchCast.
How many times have you watched a video where they point out a great resource only to say that you’ll come back to it later and never do? Or, have you ever shared a great resource and wanted to provide a variety of links for someone to choose from to extend their knowledge? It’s happened to me lots of times, and either I forget the links, or get distracted with something else whilst switching from one app to the other. TouchCast solves these issues by creating an app that merges the power of videos and the web into one."
Anthony Beal's insight:
Potentially an excellent app for video projects. Pull in other videos, live polls, web pages, charts etc. to allow interaction with your video.

The videos, each with an interactive quiz, are predominantly aimed at further education colleges, but are available for anyone who needs guidance and inspiration on many different hairdressing procedures for their professional development.
