Currently, I’m not planning to participate in this video contest because I am not very creative and because I won the grand prize (by random drawing) in the ExchangesConnect Where is iDrop competition back in October. My prize was a Flip Video Camcorder and I must admit it is pretty sweet. I haven’t had much time to fully investigate how and ways to use the Flip Video Camcorder for my blogging activities but that will come in time. Tentative plans are to create a YouTube channel for IHEC Blog and to post videos to my ExchangesConnect profile (http://connect.state.gov/profile/DavidComp). I hope to be up and running with my video plans in time for the upcoming Forum on Education Abroad conference coming up in March, 2010.
