Why should we be interested in Screencasting?
Especially important is the idea of creating RLO (reusable learning objects). It is the idea of RLO and repositories like the one at rice.edu that offers great promise for our community of practice.
Imagine that I develop a screencast with script and original program file. In my case, I actually embed the script into the Captivate document and zip my files so that any of my interested colleagues can add their narration. The good news is that an SME (subject matter expert) and ID (instructional designer) have already refined the presentation and content. The better news? Using orinatl Captivate files, anyone can customize it with their voice.
Screencasting, podcasting, vodcasting … what is next?
