E-Learning Studio, CAPD, Bancroft Building, Mile End Campus

Screencasting, is recording what is happening on your computer screen. A screencast usually also includes an audio voiceover and can also include a video of the person speaking. The most common use of screencasts is to demonstrate how to do something with a software application however they have a myriad of different uses in education:
– Provide student feedback by recording yourself going through a piece of student work
– Provide an introduction to your module with a short video
– Give a quick explanation of a tricky concept to clear up misunderstandings

Producing a screencast is relatively easy to do with your own desktop or laptop computer. There are a variety of options for software tools to help you, some of which are freely available to you as a member of staff at QMUL. Once you know what to do, you’ll find it can be really quick to produce something that students will find really useful.
