7 Things You Should Know About Flip Camcorders

Look at the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative, the "7 Things You Should Know about..." series.

Since its introduction, the Flip has quickly become extremely popular, reportedly capturing 13 percent of the camcorder market in its first year. This past spring, the Department of Communications at the University of Washington used the Flip in a student video expedition and documentary examining progress made in rebuilding New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
This fall, Duke University is providing Flip camcorders to faculty and students interested in exploring the technology and investigating the approaches to teaching and learning that it enables., an online guide to North American colleges and universities, provides Flip devices to students, who capture video on the fly and deliver it to the site promptly. Because the Flip is inexpensive enough to be taken into situations where it could be damaged or lost, it is a natural fit for everyone from bloggers documenting road trips to citizen journalists recording breaking news for Web presentation.
