To start this blog, I will describe the tools that I am currently using to create my screen casts for my students. I upload the .pdf file of the handouts into Adobe Acrobat Pro. I use a Wacom Bamboo touchpad to add details to the file. I use Jing to record the audio and video capture in .mp4 format. I upload this to Screencast and create a playlist of the Jing files. I insert a link to the playlist in my class webpage.
After attending the CUE conference, this is what I would like to change. I would like to create a webpage for each video that contains the video and a form that the student use to write a brief summary of the video and indicate specific areas that they want me to go over in class. This adds accountability to the process. So far I have created the Google form, the webpage, and tried to embed the video. However, I cannot embed a ScreenCast media role into the website (I keep getting an error when I add the embed code). I tried YouTube and Vimeo and could embed a video just fine. I had problems embedding a TeacherTube video as well. So it looks like I will need to create one video instead of several shorter videos (Jing has a time limit of 5 minutes). I have downloaded a trial version of Camtasia studios. I will let you know how it goes.
What are the current setups that you are using?
