Flip Video – just what we need

Once again I need to refer to Will Richardson! He showed us Flip Video cameras at the ELH conference and explained how they made it easy to upload your movies with the USB that ‘flips’ out the side of the camera. And they’re ultra cheap at $150.00 U.S. for 60mins of recording time. I budgeted for them for our Library but have just read a comment on elearnspace saying that they are not available outside of the U.S. I can’t imagine why not. We have been doing a lot of work with digital storytelling and they would make it much easier for our students to create their own content. Hopefully we’ll be able to find a way to source them. If anyone knows anything about their availabilty in Australia I’d appreciate some info.
