Using Screencasts in Your Teaching

Tuesday, May 21 2013 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

A "screencast" is an audio/video recording of the activity on your computer screen. Faculty can use screencasts in their teaching to demonstrate a process (math problems, diagramming, searching library databases, how-to's for software applications), provide a quick overview of a topic (narrated PowerPoint), or provide auditory feedback on student work. Students find screencasts valuable because they can review course content multiple times to enhance their understanding.

In this introductory, hands-on workshop you will:

  • Determine what screencast features will best suit your purposes
  • Review selected screencasting applications
  • Produce a simple screencast (including outlining, scripting, and recording)
  • Publish a screencast to the web for student access
