Storing students' work
Your students will need to store their work in progress. Raw video footage makes for very large digital files, typically a collection of 10 minutes of raw video could be 3GB of file space, even if the final end result is only a few megabytes in size. So you may find it easiest to give each student/group their own video tapes for recording purposes and make them individually responsible for keeping these safe. Another way might be to purchase a removable hard disk, just for storing the raw footage.
