Screencasts - movies of software
February 7, 2005 11:10 AM Subscribe
Movies of software (screencasts) is the subject of this interesting November 2004 column by Jon Udell. The column has plenty of examples (and background). Now he has made an 8.5-minute screencast where the changes of one Wiki page is the subject of a short movie - a bit boosterish, perhaps, but a great introduction to wikis and Wikipedia. Screencasts aren't that difficult to create: a member of the Norwegian Liberal Youth party made one that shows the features of a collaborative software product he uses called socialtext. (As the author admits on his blog, it's not that good - but it's interesting what an amateur can do.) Or check this out - five clips that walk how to migrate an NT4 server into Microsoft Virtual Server 2005. Or this - how to use MixCast Live to create a podcast (courtesy of the TinyScience Blog). Is screencasting the future of learning (about software, at least) - short movies that are easy to create without professional help?
