Screen Casting

For screencasting, we will start by using one of the free screen casting tools, Screencast-O-Matic. Watch the demo, and play around with a little bit until you are comfortable with how to use the tools and how to save and download your screen casts.

You are to choose one of the web tools we have used in class so far that you like or are familiar with. You (and a partner if you choose), will create a short tutorial that includes some video clips of you talking to the camera, as well as your screen cast video clips. The objective is to create a short tutorial show that introduces new users to the web tool, and shows them how to use it, and what it can be used for.

The video clips of you talking, and the clips from your screen cast are all to be combined in iMovie, where you can edit it for a more "professional" look. Make sure to use a title screen and any introductory text screens throughout the show where necessary.
