Keywords: coaching technology, video capture, coaching tools
AbstractThis study investigated the feasibility of using open source software (OSS) to provide augmented video coaching, qualitative analysis and media post-production which are tasks associated with professional coaching/scholarly activities. Utilised test equipment consisted of two video cameras, iPad, Mac-mini, two PC laptops and two desktops of various specifications. Free OSS were selected based on the possibility they could achieve the tasks. Testing occurred over a period of seven years. Critical analysis included OSS functionality mapping to the selected tasks and surrounding activities associated with media post-production. Instructional guidelines and their on-line links for the target audience were developed with the use of OSS VirtualDub, LongoMatch, Kinovea, VLC media player. The utilisation of OSS is feasible for coaching/scholarly activities.
