Archived; click post to view.
Excerpt: If you can’t see the video above then read the transcript below. Hello and welcome to Learn 4 Life News on TouchCast. I’m starting a new season of films today for busy teachers.

The positive side is that I now have a full video mixing post-production suite and it’s wonderful. You will see some of the fruits of this tomorrow onwards – I hope!
