Technology Covered in this Course


Welcome to Technology for Agility. This course is entirely web-based and designed to work with PCs, Macs and tablets like the iPad or Android devices. You can also access it from a smartphone. If you have any technical problems, please send an email to immediately. As you move through the material, you can use the “Mark as Completed” button to keep track of your progress.

This course is designed to teach you how to:

  • video tape your sessions/trials
  • edit your video
  • share your video
  • analyze your video

There are literally hundreds of combinations of technologies that would meet these objectives. In this course, I have chosen the technologies that I am most familiar with and that I think will work for the majority of people.

If the technologies in this course will not work for you based on your current equipment, please contact me at and I will work with you to design a workflow for your situation.

We believe these skills are vital to your improvement in agility. Not only do they allow you to review your runs and make rapid improvement. They will also enable you to get the most out of any online course you participate in, whether it is through Bad Dog Agility Academy or with another online instructor. The focus of this course is on functional aspects of editing and sharing, therefore we will not cover non-essential video tasks such as adding music.

    I need help with my start line stays. I have a scooter. I am technically challenged. I want to send you a video. I’m new. Not sure what I’m doing.

      See if this course can get you through the technical aspects of sharing video. If you get stuck on anything, please email me and we’ll set up a time when we can meet online.

    Hi Sarah, I got my ladder phone set up all set. Just ran course 1 four different ways, so its all on one video. I am assuming that i can shorter the video to run one and save that clip, then shorter to get run 2 and save that one, etc, but I wanted to make sure that that can be done. I taped on my iPhone and was going to shorter and then move to my iPad. Is that how you would do it, or would you airdrop to your iPad and shorten there instead? this is all so new to me I want to do one step at a time to it makes sense..also, am a kinesthetic learner. thanks!

    • Sarah Fernandezlopez says:

      I would probably go ahead and Airdrop it to your ipad and then combine and trim everything there in iMovie. The exception to this is if I forget to turn off the camera and I end up with 2-3 minutes of work followed by 15 minutes of dead time. In that case I will trim the video first so I’m not moving such a large file.
