When I was conceptualizing how FW Toolkit (FWTK) would function, I envisioned a library robust, powerful, agile, but really easy to incorporate into anyone of our projects. Although, the library did exactly as intended, a component was left out due to my own skepticism. FWTK, as a library, comes equipped with an arsenal of tools created by our developers, but the few external libraries we depended on, needed to be loaded separately before they were accessible (Errrr). I wasn’t pleased by this process, but the overall library was a success so I was content.

The scope of Frameweld’s past work with video and rich media is deep – implementations that combine countless layouts, applications that monetize content, learning handled a variety of ways, social features, certification workflows, custom reports, live events, unique workflows for specific clients, and the list goes on. Cramming everything into the Workshop was not an option. Aside from the staggering investment of time and effort it would take, the end product would be as expansive as it would be amorphous and directionless. We would likely end up with a video CMS and application framework that would be fantastic for our own use and a group of clients, but a small audience beyond that.

Work on our new online video platform, called the Workshop, started about a year and a half ago. We began with conversations and experiments on various user interface and workflow options. The origins of the Worskhop, however, stretch back many years beyond that. Here is the back story of why and how the Workshop was created.

We are on the road to Hershey, Pennsylvania now. The annual PDE Conference kicks off today from the Hershey Lodge. And we have a number of tricks in our proverbial bag. Accessible Webcasts, Recap’d, and a little sneak preview of the new PaTTAN site… Just to name a few.

Use the apostrophe or not?  That’s one of the little debates circulating these days at Frameweld.  I’m leaning towards the apostrophe’d version because it “feels” right but some practical considerations argue for the un-contracted version.

The live captioning application lives at recapd.com since it’s not possible to work apostrophes into URLs.  No apostrophe in the logo either (pretty clear where Mykal stands on this one).  My guess is that users are more likely to search for Recapd over Recap’d, though both are tough unless someone is already familiar with the brand.  That’s a few checks in the Recapd column, so why use the ‘d?
