Screencasting and Screen Recording in the Classroom


Screencasting is the capture all of the action on a computer screen while you are narrating. Screencasts can be made with many tools and are often used to create a tutorial or showcase student content mastery.

Presentation Tube: A screen recorder that has it all!



A review by Scott MacCrum
http://ictscotty.blogspot.com/2014/06/presentation-tube-screen-recording.html

I have spent a bit of time today searching for screencasting programs whereby teachers and students can record what is on their computer screens into a film.  I have previously mentioned Community Clips and Screencast-o-matic on this blog and have now found another wonderful program that lets you do the following very easily.

You can record your film and then with a click of a button you can switch between your PowerPoint presentation, Web browser and websites, you can change your webcam position on the screen and even take the webcam off the screen or make your face take up the whole screen, you can draw on the PowerPoint slides and web pages to show annotations when needed and you can do a whole heap more without having to 'jump around from program to program' whilst recording your film (as you can see from the screenshot below that shows the program).

You can then save your film as a .wmv file to give to other people on a USB stick or on your VLE/Fronter page.  I really like this program because it does allow me to do these things quickly to explain an idea to other people.  Have a look at it soon. You go to the website:  www.presentationtube.com and then you just sign up for an account and after you have signed up then you download the program to your computer (so you can access it anytime without any internet needed).  It will be handy for those subjects whereby you need to explain concept and topics to the class over and over again. This way, you say it once on the film and then the students can watch it anytime to remember how to do it.

PresentationTube offers a free video presentation recorder and video sharing platform to help teachers and students easily record and share quality video presentations in a new way. The video presentation recorder allows presenters to narrate and annotate PowerPoint slides and synchronize a variety of essential visual media, including webcam video, whiteboard, Web content, YouTube video, and desktop screen.

The recorder automates the process and ensures that teachers and presenters only need minimal technical knowledge and spend no additional time creating materials. PresentationTube is able to record all screen and audio activity on your computer screen and create industry-standard video files. PresentationTube can also add screen captions to your recordings in seconds and with the unique annotation feature you can even personalize your videos by including a webcam movie of yourself "picture-in-picture" over your desktop. The platform uses YouTube API to upload and combine the video with scrollable slide thumbnails, allowing the learner to move to the respective video content and control both the progress and length of video presentation.

Record your screen and more with PresentationTube


PresentationTube is able to record all screen and audio activity on your computer and create industry-standard video files and using its built-in SWF Producer can turn the video.

PresentationTube can also add screen captions to your recordings in seconds and with the unique Video Annotation feature you can even personalize your videos by including a webcam movie of yourself "picture-in-picture" over your desktop.

PresentationTube also comes with its own Lossless Codec that produces crystal clear results with a much smaller filesize compared with other more popular codecs, like Microsoft Video 1.

You have total control over the output of your video: you can choose to use custom cursors, to record the whole screen or just a section of it and can reduce or increase the quality of the recording depending on if you want smaller videos

PresentationTube can be learned in a matter of minutes and comes with a comprehensive built-in help file, so if you do manage to get stuck, you can simply hit "Help" and get the answers you need.

A new research paper has been published about PresentationTube

The Development and Evaluation of a Network for Producing and Sharing 
Video Presentations

Abstract
This paper describes the technology and methodology used in the development and evaluation of an online network to help instructors produce and share video presentations in a new and innovative way. The network offers an application and platform for recording and sharing video presentations. The application allows instructors to narrate and annotate PowerPoint slides and synchronize a variety of visual aids, including webcam footage, whiteboard, drawing board, and web browser. The platform uses YouTube API to upload and integrate videos with scrollable slide thumbnails. Quantitative and qualitative techniques were implemented to collect data and report on the usability of the network and effectiveness of video presentations. The results of usability evaluation showed that the network was perceived by instructors and students as effective, efficient, and relevance for self- production and sharing of video presentations. In addition, video presentations produced by participants met the criteria of quality of video presentations.

Keywords: video, video presentations, video sharing, usability evaluation, e-learning
