What are Wizards

A Wizard could be thought of as an electronic checklist of the key points required to perform a skill correctly (eg head down, arms extended, wrists follow though, etc).

 

They combine videos, images, sound, text, video analysis tools and interactions, and at the end a summary Report is automatically created.

 

A Wizard is usually used by a movement analysis expert such as a coach or for self analysis by an athlete.

 
Example 1. The process for a coach doing the analysis may be:

1.Coach takes or gets a video of the athlete performing the specific skill and uploads it into their own Zone in Bracken.
2.Coaches select a Pathway and then a Wizard in that Pathway.
3.Coach works though the Wizard using the video of the athlete.
4.Coach submits the automatically generated Report to the athlete
5.The athlete can make comments if they wish and send them back to the coach.

 

Example 2. The process for an athlete doing the analysis on themselves may be:

1.Athlete takes a video of themself performing the specific skill and uploads it into their area within their coach's Zone in Bracken.
2.Athlete selects a Pathway and then a Wizard in that Pathway.
3.Athlete works though the Wizard using their video.
4.Athlete submits the automatically generated Report to the coach
5.The coach can make comments and send them back to the athlete.

 

Wizards are found in Zones but different Zones usually have different Wizards depending on their subject matter.

 

Note: You will use Wizards over and over whereas Modules are like assignments, you only complete them once.

 

To access and use a Wizard:


Go to the Siliconcoach tab (1) and then into the Lite Zone (2).

 

Now click on the Example Wizards link.

 

Note: Yours may have different titles but the work-flow is the same.
