Screencasts: Your technology professor 24/7

Matthew Edward Mooney, Bruce Alan Spitzer

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Screencasts allow a learner to experience a computer-based demonstration again and again at the learner's pace. This means students can review a complicated process or look-up which menu option was selected to get a certain window. Historically, there has been a strong reliance on paper-based support materials. Yet static screen captures don't always tell a learner what steps were taken to get to the window that is shown. Screencasts show exactly what a learner needs to do to complete a given task. Additionally, screencasts are affordable to create and distribute. This chapter will outline the equipment necessary to create screencasts. A selection of software applications will be discussed, and practical tips will be provided to help the reader quickly begin creating screencasts.
