Oral History Center Remote Interviewing Webinar

The Oral History Center is hosting a Remote Interviewing Webinar:

Learn the ins-and-outs of remote interviewing and recording. 

In this UC Berkeley webinar, we will explore how to set up Zoom settings for remote recordings, how to record separate audio, and what to communicate to your narrator before the interview. This webinar will be lead by Paul Burnett who have been interviewing remotely during COVID-19.

Researching technologies used on websites that provide online access to oral history interviews


I am studying the types of technologies used to present oral history websites, repositories, portals, and exhibits, for sites that provide unrestricted online access to oral history interviews.

If you would like to be a part of this study, and I haven't already contacted you, please email me the link to your oral history website/repository/portal/exhibt.
