That's Infotainment!: How to Create Your Own Screencasts
Kroski, Ellyssa
School Library Journal, v55 n2 p40-42 Feb 2009
Screencasts are videos that record the actions that take place on the computer screen, most often including a narrative audio track, in order to demonstrate various computer-related tasks, such as how to use a software program or navigate a certain Web site. All that is needed is a standard microphone and screen recording software, which can be downloaded for free. In this article, the author offers a few project ideas to get librarians thinking about the types of screencasts they can create today. In addition, the author outlines eight simple steps to create screencasts that can help teach students and library patrons how to search library databases, find homework help, research colleges, sign up for the summer reading program, and more.
