Rootstech Screencasting Session: Ann Metcalf

My first official in classroom session was with Ann who works with learning services at the LDS.

Screencasting is a videocreen capture containing audio recording.

It is best for visual learning with audio which covers over 65% of us.
Screencasting is great for distance and traditional classroom learning.

Try any of the FREE or paid screencast programs:

    - Screenr
    - Jing
    - Screencastomatic
    - Screen Jelly - LOL!

It is very simple - All you need is:

     Free screencast program and Power Point or another presentation software
     A microphone for your computer
     A place to share your casts on-line (Youtube, wiki, etc.)

First you should pick a topic, create and outline, and PREPARE your SCRIPT

Next you just need to practice timing
It will take a few tries to figure out how wide to capture your screen, time your speaking directions just right for your audience, and work in your desired animations and their timing if needed to flow smoothly with your audio script.

Be patient and jsut work at it.  Ask for feedback from friends and family when available.
You will become really good at it in time and make some amazing screencast presentations in practically no time at all.

         Thank you Ann - it was great even with the audio distractions!
