Screencasting 101

Creating videos for online classes, training, and more!

What's a Screencast?

A screencast is a recording of a computer screen.  Unlike a screenshot (a still image of the screen), a screencast is a video. Want to know more?  Watch the video below.

This ITSO workshop will give you experience making your own screencasts using free/low cost programs.  Screencasting is an invaluable skill for online instructors, but can also be a useful skill for all faculty and staff for creating training videos.  All are welcome to this workshop!

Uses for screencasts:

  • Create dynamic content for online classes
  • Demonstrate a process that can be re-watched as needed
  • Better describe a problem for assistance
  • Create a guided web-tour
  • Narrate a presentation
  • Give feedback on an assignment
  • Create training videos
