Creating a tutorial screencast like the one above is fairly easy, and doesn’t have to cost lots of money. In this post, I’ll describe how I made my video, and give you a few suggestions about making your own.
Many thanks to the Berkeley Heights Public Library for graciously allowing me to use their website and catalog for this video.
One of the last (and most useful) training sessions that I took before finishing grad school was how to use screencasting and audio recording/editing software to create tutorials for the library website.
In the interests of turning theory into practice, I’m working on a basic tutorial screencast for an internet library resource. As I’m creating it, I’ll be taking notes on the process and result, and will post again with a link to the finished product as well as a write-up with my experiences and recommendations. And I’ll be using as many free or low-cost alternatives so as to make this a realistic possibility for as many people as possible.
