The purpose of this exercise is to introduce you to screencasting. By definition, screencasting is recording your computer screen with or without sound (including voice) and converting it into a video. Screencasting has a multitude of uses.
For this project, you will use Screencast-O-Matic, a free online screencasting application. You will then create and upload your video to YouTube and make a link from your web site.
You should create a video that would be of future use to you either in your anticipated future occupation or as a video you would put in an online job portfolio to demonstrate your skills.
FOLOWING ARE THE DIRECTIONS:
PLEASE NOT THAT I MUST APROVE THE TOPIC OR YOUR PROJECT BEFORE YOU BEGIN!
1. Although I will demonstrate this in class, you will find many more details at Screencast-O-Matiic Tutorials.
2. Decide on a topic. Then DISCUSS it with me and I will give you feedback. The topic should be related to your major. EDUCATION MAJORS must prepare a less that is related to their future teaching certification.
3. Prepare your script. What are you going to say? You can either do with paraphrasing or preparing an entire script. One way of helping you through this when you are recording, do the recording in segments (stopping and starting).
6. Record your video for at least 2 minutes. You must record your voice so you must use a microphone.
5. Share your video on YouTube but not in private mode. You will see that option for sending the video to YouTube when your are done recording.
6. Make a link on your "Course Assignments" page WITH an explanation of how this could be used in your class (Education Majors) or future career (Non-education Majors). Minimum of 5 sentences!
7. Log out of YouTube and test your link!
