Can’t Communicate Your Assessments Clearly Online? – Use Camtasia Screen Casts!

Hey there future thinking educators,

I’ve been playing around with screen capturing software and found that by simply recording a screen cast of the Assessment PDF with me talking, can give students a baisc walk through of the assessment in the same way that you would walk through assessments with your face to face class.

I’m using Camtasia to record my screen casts but obviously you can use any screen capturing software.

Have a look at the example above of one of my assessments on Moodle. (HSCOnline)

Keep pushing the boundaries!

  1. Great initiative Grant. A really informative and practical way of communicating with your class. Thanks for all your hard – and great – work.

  2. Hey Grant – I use Camtasia studio with a tablet to create screencasts of examples for my Mathematics classes – some kids (and parents) really like them (PS a year identified two errors in the sine rule podcast – see http://mrborgert.wordpress.com
