Session Table Name: BOLOGNA

With the popularity of Kahn Academy, TED Ed, and YouTube educational videos like the Crash Course series, it is clear that students often seek video resources to help them learn and understand content. But sometimes, the readily available videos do not fully cover the competencies you want your students to learn. Screencasting is a tool that you can use to create your own instructional videos to tailor them exactly how you want them. Screencasting is especially helpful when flipping the classroom or teaching online. Screencasting can also be used as an open pedagogy tool.

Screencasting refers to digitally recording information on a computer screen, often with voiceover audio recordings to accompany the visuals. Screencasting often refers to recording audio while viewing a slideshow, like a PowerPoint or Google Slides Presentation, but it can also include providing audio instruction while showing students how to navigate a website or use a computer program. Additionally, tablets such as the iPad Pro and Surface Pro, and their advanced styluses, such as the Apple Pencil, can be used as a digital whiteboard allowing someone to draw out a concept while providing an audio recording of what is being shown.

The purpose of this action lab is to demonstrate the use of screencasting technology for the creation of open educational resources and in open pedagogy assignments. Audience members will be encouraged to ask questions, brainstorm ideas with other participants, or bring their own device (tablet, smartphone, or laptop computer) to try out screencasting technology.

At the beginning of the session, we will demonstrate how we have leveraged screencasting software and apps, such as “Explain Everything” and “Screencast-o-matic”, to produce open educational resources and provide a new level of student engagement. We will discuss best practices along with the benefits and challenges of combining OER with screencasting.
