Screencasts, Week B. Make a plan for generating a short screencast. Choose a topic, decide how you will generate your visuals and make them if appropriate, and make a storyboard (decide how your narration will fit in with your visuals). We will have some computers with screencast recording software available, but if you’d like, you can install software on your own computer; a list of software packages is available on Wikipedia’s Comparison of Screencasting Software page:

We will have four computers with the programs Camtasia, Quicktime, Screencast-O-Matic, and Active Presenter, to be used for recording audio and videos from powerpoint, document camera, Wacom tablet with stylus, and/or self recording of your head through a laptop camera.
