A screencast is a video recording of one's activity on a computer screen. This process is utilized by libraries, archives, and museums to create informative tutorials on how to utilize their websites, repositories, catalogues, databases, etc. Screencasts vary between quick and simple task demonstrations with no audio, to flashy high production videos.
Through hands-on activities, this workshop will show you:
- How to implement screencasting best practices
- How the Web Accessibility Guidelines shape your screencasts
- The pros and cons of a few different screen casting platforms
- How to create a short and simple screencast with a free online platform
