I have been contemplating changing my profile picture for a while. I did not have a professional photograph to use, so I chose to take a casual 'selfie' for my home page. With that, I chose to change theme from a brown background which worked with sepia photographs, to a cleaner interface and dark background with white text, which is more dramatic and does not detract from the material I have uploaded. I have been trying to put up a video blog to explain more about my choice of photograph, however, the free version of weebly is not allowing me to put it directly into the blog without upgrading?!
I tried to upload my amateur v-blog and use a hyperlink, however, the 10MB limit precludes this as well. It's only a minute of video captured on an ipad mini and its 96MB! Frustrating but good to know. It means that all recordings I might make will need to be uploaded perhaps through 'you tube' and then put the link up onto Moodle, as Moodle has an upload limit as well (200MB, from memory).
I've tried to convert .MOV to .SWF so I can upload a flash object on this blog instead. I found a few websites that do these conversions for free https://cloudconvert.com/mov-to-swf This also didn't work, probably because the movie is so large. It worked on my next blog post, though. Progress!
