Published on

Screencasting is video screen capturing that can include audio narration and other functions. Since many people are visual learners, screencasts are powerful tools to help demonstrate, via video, more complex tasks. During the first week, you will learn to:

Install Jing
Navigate Jing’s Features
Setup Jing for your first video screencast
Create a Screencast.com account
Between classes, attendees will each be asked to work on a project useful to them or one suggested in class. One-on-one assistance with the instructor will be provided during this time.

Rachel Eichen is a presenter who has had over four years of teaching experience. She teaches librarian-centric webinars on such topics as G-mail, Memes, and Reddit.
