Doing things you would do naturally (office hours and during class)

More valuable than text since things can be pointed out and highlighted in real time

TIME ON TASK (not being assigned, but students are watching them)

Why we're excited, why students are excited, then tell what Screencasts are...

• Elaborate that "Wide Applicability" means fresh to graduate, many different students/learning types 5 videos,
Watched 100 times each
Best final scores ever
No review session Replaces in-class examples

Supplements office hours

Exam reviews

For absent students

I am able to work out the problem at my own pace, and watch the screencast whenever I get stuck.” “I didn’t learn as much when we stopped using screencasts.” "I think that the screencasts were unbelievably effective at teaching the material. They are my favorite way to study." “I learned a lot from the videos. It’s hard learning at such a rapid pace in class, so it’s really nice to be able to rewind and replay the videos as many times as needed.” “Screencasts are fantastic.

Record Students Watch Simple Edits SC Idea Disseminate Outline
Screencast "It would be more helpful if there be an open forum to ask a question about the screencast so we can understand better the methodology behind the work." "Having students make screencasts on specific topics throughout the semester would help us (and others) prepare for exams better." "A written out problem before we play the SC would help more on example problems" "Nothing, they are perfect." "Use SC as pre-class assignments instead of reading quizzes" Suggestions What Screencasts are Available? Why Care?
