CREATING VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS AND NARRATED PRESENTATIONS USING SCREENCASTING SOFTWARE

WHAT IS SCREENCASTING? 

Wikipedia defines a screencast as a digital recording of a computer screen output, also known as a video screen capture, often containing audio narration. 

A screencast is essentially a movie of the changes over time that a user sees on a computer screen, enhanced with audio narration.

There are two free options for creating screenscasts quickly.

LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

In the classroom, screencasting is an opportunity for both educators and students:

  • NARRATED PRESENTATIONS
    • Students and Teachers create a slideshow or image, create a screencast while narrating the slideshow, and then 'present' the video to the class, or simply share it on YouTube
  • STORYTELLING
    • Tell a story by creating a document and reading it while taking a screencast and then posting the video
  • VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS
    • Teachers and students can prepare step-by-step instructions on how to do almost any computer process by recording their screen as they do it
