Let's Make a Screencast
Screencasting is a method of capturing both audio and visual information from a computer to make a multimedia presentation that can be easily shared, extending your course content and increasing learner engagement. In this asynchronous 2-week workshop, you will learn about the benefits of screencasting, identify the variety of uses for screencasting in academic settings, and explore strategies and tools available for creating screencasts. Participants will have an opportunity for hands-on practice, as they will create a brief screencast on a topic of their choice and submit it for peer feedback. We will also host two identical and optional one-hour synchronous Q&A sessions for those enrolled in the workshop (Monday, 10/19 at 10:00 am and Thursday, 10/22 at 2:00 pm).
About our online asynchronous workshops:
Our asynchronous online workshops are delivered in Canvas over 5 days or 2 weeks, beginning on Monday at 8:00 am and ending on the following Friday at 11:59 pm. Participants are able to contribute independently at their own pace over the 5-day period; however, there may be intermittent deadlines to optimize participant interaction. The workshops will require approximately 2-3 hours of engagement, including reading about evidence-based practices, viewing multimedia, engaging in online discussion forums, and submitting reflective assignments. The optional synchronous sessions are made available for participants to engage with each other and the facilitators in real-time, to ask questions, share practices and get feedback on their implementation plans.
