Upcoming Live Webcast on Screencasting

The Association of College and Research Libraries is offering a live webcast on April 26 on Getting Started with Screencasting.

The presenter will be Courtney Greene, Instruction & Online Learning Librarian at DePaul University in Chicago. Fees apply. Registration is online.

"This two hour session will explore screencasting—delivering screen captures via RSS—and its potential applications in the academic library. Participants will be provided with examples of screencasts, information on various software applications used to create screencasts, and tips for choosing content, preparing, recording and delivering a screencast".
