** NEW** Screencasting to Facilitate Learning Opportunities for Mac Users

Tuesday, August 6, 2013 at 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Registrants will be notified of location.

Screencasting is becoming an increasingly common tool for online instruction. The workshop introduction will focus on the process of conceptualizing educational tutorials, asking important pedagogical questions, story boarding ideas, and deciding on the most appropriate method for distribution of content. Participants will use Screenflow, a Mac-based program that offers features and options that enhance instruction by capturing lectures, recording and highlighting interaction with website tours or software applications, and using closed captioning to expand accessibility. Participants will create a brief instructional screencast demonstrating various features. Advance registration is required. Register here:
