NY3Rs Presents: Webinar: Screencasting, Tutorials, & You!

Speaker Eric Machan Howd

Eric Machan Howd has been teaching online in higher education since 1997, and has consulted, advised, trained, and directed online programs/faculty in the USA as well as internationally.

Screencasting is recording the video and audio output of a computer into a short movie. While many screencasts are used as tutorials for software, there are other pedagogical purposes for this medium as well. This workshop outlines some of the possible uses for instruction, as well as for professional work. We will look at both proprietary and open-source screencasting programs for use on Macs and PCs, and getting some hands-on time with Camtasia, a leading contender in the screencasting software genre.

Learning objectives:

  • Provide participants with an overview of Screencasting Tools
  • Provide participants with a step-by-step process for planning and delivering Screencasts
  • Model screencast presentations to illustrate to participants the process and protocol of planning and delivering screencasts

Registration is open to all NY3Rs (including METRO members) for a reduced fee of $10. Sign up here.
