Tips For A Successful Screencast

  • “Set List”:  Give yourself a visual of what you need to accomplish!

  • Organize:  Have add’l materials stacked in order you want & within reach.

  • Purposeful Bookends:   Let viewer know what will be accomplished.  Give final thought to wrap up.

  • Effective Pause:  Tell them to stop and get caught up!

  • Less is More:  Three good 1-2 minute screencasts for 3 different skills better than one 5-minute screencast with several different “thoughts”

  • Start Small & Safety In Numbers:  Develop some simple screencasts.  What works and doesn’t?  Refine and continue as year progresses.  And, divvy up the work!  It’s shareable!
