Make screencasts using Quicktime

If you have a MacBook then using Quicktime to make screencasts is probably the best way to go because then you can import the screencasts into KeyNote or iMovie easily. All the software on a MacBook is designed to integrate. There is plenty of information about the uses of Quicktime here at iskysoft. The screen casting aspect of it is something my students use in their presentations and can embed it as a video in KeyNote/Powerpoint or they import it as a movie into iMovie and use it as part of their overall presentation. A screencast can be a very helpful way of showing somemone how to do something when you don’t want to keep repeating the instructions. It can be used to make how to videos but it can also be used in a creative way to capture a screen and what you or the screen is doing so that you can add that to a bigger task. You could take screencasts of Google Tours, for instance,  and then add other information either in video or slide format. I have found if you are going to talk with a screencast you need to be very clear about what you are going to say. Some people can do that easily. Others , like me, need to think it out first and then say it. Before you start recording be very clear about what it is you want to do. You do have the option of importing it into a movie program and then recording a voiceover. I am not a natural at talking and doing something on a screen unless I am teaching. Practise! Don’t get put off. Just keep doing it.
