Audience: Novices and experienced video creators, particularly those developing videos for remote users in all types of libraries. This workshop is appropriate for all librarians and staff, especially those who work with distance learning students and remote library users.

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. Join Eric Machan Howd and SCRLC for a webinar outlining some of the possible uses for instruction, as well as your professional work. We'll be looking at both proprietary and open-source screencasting programs for use on Macs and PCs, and will see examples of those products in action.
