A screencast is a video of the actions on a user’s computer screen, which may be accompanied by audio and/or video narration by the author.
This can take the form of a narrated PowerPoint, demonstration on how to use a particular product, or any topic that needs explanation that simple text cannot adequately provide.
Screencasts allow students to access learning material at their convenience, while simultaneously providing a sense of engagement with faculty.
Screencasts can be used to demonstrate tasks or illustrate concepts that may be difficult to explain in just the written words of a PowerPoint or lecture notes.
The video and audio components can make a topic more interesting than written instructions or images, while appealing to different learning styles.
Screencasts require special software to be used. However, there are many free screencasting tools available for download online.
All that is needed is a microphone and a computer. If you wanted to add a video of yourself, you would also need a webcam.
Many screencasting tools allow for additional video manipulation - such as adding captions, music, editing of the video, etc.
Assess understanding - Quizzing
Instructors can asses if students are learning from lecture content by adding quizzes to your videos.
Quizzes can be taken on a variety of devices, such as desktops, laptops, iPads, Android tablets, and most Android smart phones
results are sent via daily emails that include an attached spreadsheet
Screencasts allow students to feel connected to the instructor. By hearing your voice or seeing your face, students receive a richer experience than simple text-based forms of instruction can provide.
