  • 1. Screencast-O-Matic: Easy Audio-Visual Instruction By FAU Librarians Rachael Neu, Alyse Ergood, Melissa Moore, and Lauri Rebar
  • 2. SOM LibGuide http://libguides.fau.edu/SOM
  • 3. Overview • Background • SOM: How To – Pre-Production (Getting Ready) – Production (Recording) – Post-Production (Editing) • Best Practices
  • 4. Screencasting Defined “Screencasts are short instructional videos that demonstrate computer-related tasks…” (Notess 2012).
  • 5. Screencasting in Higher Ed
  • 6. Screencasting Tools
  • 7. Screencast-O-Matic (SOM)
  • 8. Using SOM
  • 9. Using SOM • Overview: – Gather your materials – Record your screencast • Key Features • LIVE Demo – Edit your screencast – Produce & Deliver your screencast
  • 10. Gather Your Materials • Choose a Topic – What elements do we want to teach in each session? – Audience: Who are they and how do we meet their needs? – Why does my audience need to know this? – Start simple.
  • 11. Gather Your Materials Compare PowerPoint VS Screencapture PowerPoint Screencapture
  • 12. Gather Your Materials • Brainstorm – Identify the objective, procedure and steps • Create an Outline – This will act as a guide and structure for pre- production – Identify the major points and steps to be included in the tutorial – This outline does not need to be detailed, as much as it needs to be comprehensive
  • 13. Sample Outlines
  • 14. Gather Your Materials • Write the Script – Once the content outline has been reviewed and is solid, use it to write the script for each individual screencast. – The script should detail what will be said throughout the screencast, realizing it will be edited several times prior to producing the screen cast. – Must be clear, concise and explicit.
  • 15. Gather Your Materials Example of a Script
  • 16. Gather Your Materials • Graphics – Identify graphics to go with your script and to include in the screen cast.
  • 17. Gather Your Materials • Create a Storyboard with the Script and Identified Graphics – PowerPoint is a great tool to use to storyboard. – Check storyboard for accuracy of topic you are teaching. – Take screenshots to help you visualize. – Add graphics that will help make your point. – It is imperative that your script match the graphics being described.
  • 18. Gather Your Materials Examples of Storyboards Structures
  • 19. Gather Your Materials – You need to create an account with Screencast-O-Matic before you can complete activities. (http://screencastomatic.com) – You will also need a microphone/headset.
