Information Wants to Be Free – “What Do They Really Need?”
- Discusses screencasts versus text tutorials and what most students would prefer in a search process
- Thoughts: Is there a way to combine this? Tutorials with searchable scripts? Sort of a Glifos idea?
- Thoughts: Look up Aquabrowser; combining text and visual for multiple avenues of instruction
- Students are often unable to replicate searches, why not produce a screencast of a search while showing student how to do it?; screencasts designed to answer specific questions at same moment of instruction
- Thoughts: Would be great to apply, but probably not for this project; Look up Camtasia, Captivate, Screenjelly, Screentoaster, Jing, Trailfire, Screenr
- Lots of lists of screencasting tools, examples of screencasts divided by organization type
- Thoughts: Go through all free resources and compare
- Older (2006) list of academic libraries that use screencasting with links
Videos and Screencasts
- Hour long introduction to screencasting, different types of screencasting tools and resources
- Thoughts: Look up ScreenCastle, comparison chart of screencasting software
- Video tutorials for online students using Adobe Captivate, very general, just walkthroughs of using websites, locating resources
- Thoughts: Although Captivate has CC, not used
- Thoughts: Would be nice to have text side by side with video, maybe a split screen thing?
