JISC Digital Media Online Surgeries-Screencasting

Next week sees the launch of JISC Digital Media’s 2011 online surgeries.

The recent growth in educational content being delivered via computer screen – be it PowerPoint presentations, web pages and services, software demonstrations and training, or digital media – has afforded a greater importance to the ability to capture what you are doing on your computer and package this screen capture as an effective and accessible learning resource – screencasting.

To reflect this over the next few weeks JISC Digital Media’s online surgeries will focus on screencasting:

19/01/11    The major technical issues surrounding screencasting
26/01/11    Considerations for screencasts as teaching and learning support

02 /02/11    Using a screencast as a lecture capture tool
09/02/12    Using a screencast to provide feedback
