Resource: The Participatory Documentary Cookbook

Jenny Weight at RMIT has published The Participatory Documentary Cookbook for free as a downloadable pdf. This is a really great resource for using free social media tools in the classroom, and will be useful for all of us.

Now available free, my textbook for creating participatory documentaries using social media. Aimed at people who can take photos and engage with basic social media, it seeks to leverage the social web to create niche community-based documentaries. You will learn how to create a semi-professional project without spending any money on gear or software.

The cookbook is available as a PDF download. An enhanced iPad version with video and audio content will shortly be available at the Apple iBookstore, also free.
