Getting started with your screencast

Here are some tips for starting your screencast video project:

  • The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate your research process. This will be easier if you take notes while doing research and keep track of your search strategy. Then, make a video outline. Make a plan for where you want to start, what you want to share, and how you will share it.  
  • Your instructor has provided you with specific criteria/guiding questions for this assignment. To make sure you are covering all of the required elements, write out a loose script to accompany your video outline. This will help you explain the steps you took and why. 
  • Practice a few times before recording the video. This will help determine if you need to make any changes before recording and will make the recording process a little more efficient. 
  • Do a practice round with the recording software of your choice. Learn how to use the recording tools and how to start, stop, and save your recording. Once you are familiar with how the tools work, then start recording your project.
