Shelly Drumm at Houston Community College Libraries has just posted a great Macromedia Captivate screencast that walks her students through the various IM options available to them (native client, Meebo, Chatango). The screencast's really well done, with options to choose what to learn about, and to repeat if necessary, but what really struck me was Shelly's natural ease behind the microphone. I suspect she was reading from a script only because her words matched those that were on the screen, but it sure didn't sound like she was reading. It sounded like she was sitting there chatting with me, walking me through my options. That's what you want your screencasts to sound like, folks!
