This Fall, CEAL is bringing back Screencasting 101 – a fully online course – starting November 10 through November 21,2014 . This course – facilitated by Pierce Instructional Designer, Renee Phoenix – is a fast paced, online course, primarily for faculty who are looking to add the skill of screencasting to their teaching strategy toolkit. Registration for the course is now open , but space is limited to 15 participants. So read on for more information about the course and how you can sign up.
What is a screencast you ask? A screencast is a video that includes a recording of your computer screen. And it’s usually accompanied by audio. A screencast can be used for many things including software demonstrations, training tutorials, capturing lectures and presentations or anything else you want to talk about and share in your courses.
Is This Course for You?
Do you need to have experience working in, or teaching with Canvas? The answer is yes, you need to be comfortable with the Canvas classroom environment. You don’t have to be a hybrid or fully online instructor, but you do need to have sufficient skills and knowledge of the Canvas LMS to be able to participate as a student in the Screencasting 101 course online, in a Canvas classroom. This course is for what we would call “advanced beginners” who are comfortable navigating the Canvas interface and creating course items in the Canvas LMS. If you have taken Canvas Essentials, Transitioning to Teaching Online, or have been regularly designing and working with Canvas in your classes for the past year, this course is appropriate for you. Expect to spend 4-6 hours each week on your screencast projects.
Do you need special equipment besides a computer and an Internet connection? The answer is yes, but CEAL can provide a mic and webcam equipment to course participants to use while taking the class. If you have your own headset microphone and webcam, you are ready to go! And of course, reliable access to a computer and an Internet connection is up to you.
