I’m ready for my close up, Mr. DeMille. This week I discovered screencasting. Yes, I know I am a little late to the party, but let me take a moment to revel in the simplicity and grace of this fine educational tool.
Here are five things I love about screencasts/screencasting and a link to a fabulous article if you’d like to try it yourself.
*Excellent for explaining briefly how to do something (use software, make a paper airplane, search the card catalog, tie your shoes…).
*You don’t have to be in a screencast – just the screen action and your melodic voice as narration.
*Production can be very simple or you can edit for a more polished finished product.
*Easy to share.
*Variety of software and lots of it is free!
Here is an article on how to make a screencast. Although I wonder why it is not a screencast on how to make a screencast, I do appreciate the tips offered here on WebDesignerDepot. Enjoy!
