Screencast, Aha!

Jay Cross

Screencasts are a great way to look over someone’s shoulder remotely to see what’s happening on screen. I used to use Camtasia for this but the price tag drove me away. I used Jive instead. Both Jive and Snagit were rendered inoperable by the latest update of Yosemite for the Mac.

Michael Hanley was nice enough to post a description and screencast of how to navigate the eLearning Learning Community and what he sees as the value proposition. It's very cool to have people like Michael involved who can add value to the collective whole. Thanks Michael. Browse eLearning Content at www.elearninglearning.com

Jing Screencasts Bandwidth Limit

Tony Karrer

I had used Jing several times recently to create screencasts. Luckily, viewing of my recent screencasts ( LinkedIn for Finding Expertise and Searching for Expertise - LinkedIn Answer ) will be pretty low over time. So, I'm now back to searching for a free tool that works to create screencasts that I can use for my blog. I have been pretty happy with it as a tool, but I got a message from Jing that told me that I had nearly used up my monthly bandwidth.

Screencasting Tools

Nigel Paine

Articulate's Rapid E-Learning Blog describes how to use their free screencasting tool screenr. It is labled as a screencast for Twitter but it has much more flexibility. It is simple and easy to use and outputs to Twitter, iPhone, YouTube and into Articulate or you can embed it into your own website. Check it out here. It also has its own url: [link]. Their 25 second video on the screenr home page explains it all

LinkedIn Connection Approach Rethought

Tony Karrer

You can see how I do this in my posts/screencasts LinkedIn Searching for Experts and Expertise and LinkedIn Answers to Get Help. The screencast then shows how I would go about formulating a request for help through an intermediate contact. If you read my blog much, you know that I use LinkedIn quite a bit to help me find experts and expertise. One of the techniques that I show in the first is that you can expand the reach of your search by choosing to search groups.

Social Learning doesn’t mean what you think it does!

Jane Hart

We create more performance aids (in diff formats: PDfs, screencasts, etc) than courses. A few days ago my Internet Time Alliance colleague, Harold Jarche, shared this article, written by Deb Lavoy, with me: Social Business Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Does, Neither Does Enterprise 2.0. The first few paragraphs say it all! Social Business” is not about technology, or about “corporate culture.” It is a socio-political historical shift that is bigger, broader and much more fascinating.

Making Business Sense of Social Media and Social Networking – Twitter For Business

Well, not really; education on how social software tools work has got very little to do with technology nor the tools themselves, since you can always go through extensive features reviews, or in-depth overviews of capabilities, online videos, Web sites, screencasts, webcasts, etc.

Social Media: An Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I edit video using Adobe Premiere Elements or Camtasia (the latter if I need a screencast), or as saved from a live desktop session using UStream (less frequently) or LiveStream (more frequently). I was asked to contribute my responses to interview questions on social media for a new journal called The Future of Learning and of course I was happy to send some thoughts along. When did you start getting interested in the potential of social media in education and why?

But today we’re in the theater of the National ARchives and have just been greeted by the Archivist of the United States, David Ferriero.

I’m currently in the mode of improving that talk, then I’ll record a screencast talking through it and share that. This morning I gave a new talk with a tool that I hadn’t used before: Prezi. I’ll ruminate on my experience with the tool some other time. My talk has the same title as this blog post. Here’s the Prezi file I spoke from (the link is only good through Oct. 21, when Prezi will remove it).

Rules for Copying Presentation Style?

In a previous post - Video and Screencast Styles for Corporate Training? - if I found something that I thought was a good style to copy for the videos and screencasts that I'm thinking about, I was planning on borrowing from it. I had mentioned Common Craft as an example of a particular well-known style that seems to have struck a chord. I'm still looking for examples of other good styles that people have seen.

NING Alternatives via Stephen Downes

Sylvia Curry has a screencast of the document being updated. I don’t normally wholly post others blog posts, but I think spreading the word about alternatives to NING , which will be ending its free service, is a useful thing. So thanks for Stephen for putting this together. I had collected a few more, but I’ll add them to the Alternatives to Ning GoogleDoc! The issue of “free, hosted, self hosted, propriatary, open&# or whatever is a key technology stewardship challenge.

Qarbon Camtasia and Adobe Captivate

Tony Karrer

These videos would have software demos, screencasts and PowerPoints embedded inside them. Question from a reader, hoping you can provide your thoughts: I am in the process of selecting an elearning tool that is easy to use, quick to create the demos and does not bloat the file size much. I want to create some online videos that will be a total of about 6-7 hours and upload them on my site. Also every screen would have audio (voiceover with my voice) accompanying it.

I can probably guarantee you won’t be back ever since… The Timeline: I guess at some point I should probably go ahead and put together a short screencast of how I use the Twitter Timeline to quickly scan through tweets and pause through those I would really want to digest and muse further about and when to speed up and move on. There used to be a time when I was very much in love with Twitter. It was my favourite social networking tool by far.

Searching for Expertise - LinkedIn Answers

So in this screencast, I look at what I would do given this need. Yesterday I created a screen cast on LinkedIn for Finding Expertise. Today, I saw a post on our Free - Web 2.0 for Learning Professionals where someone said: I am currently trying to find a SME experienced with Moodle (a CMS/LMS) and WizIQ (synchronous web class technology). I posted a query about this to several of the groups that I've joined on LinkedIn and have received about a dozen responses so far.
