Building on concepts of understanding learning styles and how to organize and ‘chunk’ instructional content for the online environment, this course’s main goal is to teach librarians best practices for creating effective screencasts (video-based online instruction modules) using Camtasia, and other similar tools. Student learning outcomes for this full-day, face-to-face workshop include: the ability to determine how to get the most from your screencasts; learning how to divide content into logical chunks that are most appropriate for online learners; an understanding of best practices for creating content for their topic (e.g. storyboarding, script writing, and voiceover/narration); an understanding of what hardware and software tools work best for which content (and best sources for acquiring needed tools); and the ability to assess the effectiveness of screencasted content. The six hour class provides additional time for in-depth hands-on activities and more information on class design principles.
