Creating And Distributing Your Own Screencasts
The ShowMeDo site offers a collection of screencasts that
teach you how to produce your own screencasts.
For users of Windows, there are also instructions and a video on how to get
starting using the free, GPL'd CamStudio software.
- The difference between a screencast and a video is a semantic one, but
generally a screencast is a video lecture that focuses on looking at
actual source code or other such text on the presenter's desktop. A
video, as the term is used here, is usually shot with a standalone
camera of a presenter talking, sometimes and sometimes not with a readable
view of his slides. Or put another way, a screencast is a movie of
software and requires higher quality video than a talking head lecture.
