What is screencasting
What is screencasting?

  • Capturing your voice and the screen of the computer to teach lessons

  • Use for:

    • Future student reference for tricky topics

    • Flipping your classroom

    • Enhancement of ideas presented in class

  • How do I use it?

    • For CS: students watch video to learn initial information; they post a response to the associated forum; some questions I answer on the forum; common questions I address in class; in-class completion and review of what I used to assign for homework

    • For math: tricky topics for future reference



Making your first screencast
Making your first screencast

A. Film your screen

1. Pull up Camtasia Studio

2. Choose “Record the Screen”

3. Pick a size for your selection (their default ratio of 3:4 looks good on

most phones, computers, iPads

4. Hit “rec” to record

5. Hit stop when you are done

B. Edit your recording

6. A window pops up - choose “Save and Edit” – give it a descriptive

name. Note that this only makes a *.camrec file. This is the raw

material you use to edit into a project. You then need to produce your

project to make a movie you can upload.

7. The editing window appears where you make your project

C. Make and upload your movie

8. Produce and Share

9. upload to youtube.com or screencasting.com


A quick demo
A quick demo

Adding:

  • external media – a picture and an image

  • voice narration

  • call outs

  • transitions

  • zoom


Tips

  • If you say something wrong, pause for several seconds, start again. The several second pause makes it easy to edit out.

  • Use zoom ins to draw attention to part you want them to focus on.

  • I always make a simple file with my links and put in same folder as my mp4 files

  • If you are contemplating true flipping, hold the kids accountable by making them

    • Post to a forum

    • Complete notes you have pre-written

    • Answer a question on a Google spreadsheet


M ake them available to your students
Make them available to your students

  • Screencast.com is free if you purchase Camtasia Studio

    benefit: fancier stuff with flash

    drawback: can’t organize them very well – can’t have

    folders within folders

  • Youtube: if you have a gmail account, you already have a

    youtube account

    benefit: very accessible on different platforms – phones,

    iPads, computers

    drawback: no flash (so no bookmarks)

  • On both of the above places, students have easy access to your other movies.
