Creating Tutorials Using Screencasting Software (Pre-Conference)
Wednesday, May 9
noon – 5pm
Video tutorials have become an established method of delivering online, point-of-need help to library patrons. If you have not ventured into this arena yet, here is your chance! This pre-conference will give you hands-on experience using the screencasting software Camtasia and will guide you through the steps of producing your own online video tutorials – from planning to recording to assessment. Join a skilled team of librarians as they demonstrate Camtasia and discuss best practices involved in the process of creating screencasts. Registration for this pre-conference includes a complimentary headset and one-year subscription to the screencasting application JingPro. Note: registration will be limited to 15 participants. Lunch will be served in the restaurant from 12:00 to 1:00.
