ScreenCasts and ScreenCasting
Jul 18, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Graeme Daniel looks at the topic of screencasting with his usual thorough touch, offering links to advice and examples before looking at the use of screencasts in education. I especially appreciated his caution: "the relative ease of putting a screencast together can be something of a trap, and a considerable number of candidates for possible use as examples were discarded because they were taking forever to arrive, screenshots were too indistinct, sound levels were too low, speech was impossibly fast, or messages were poorly put together."

Re: ScreenCasts and ScreenCasting

Graeme Daniel does an excellent job of gathering great resources on each of the topics he covers, but am I the only one bothered by the fact that we have to provide an email address to see these resources? I no longer promote his site to teachers for this reason. [Comment] [Permalink]
