These are the links that I referenced during my Introduction to Screencasting seminar for the SirsiDynix Institute. The archived seminar will soon be available online, and when it is I'll replace this sentence with a link to it. The examples that I hope to show include:
Book Title Search from Central Michigan University's Off Campus Library Services. I really like how their screencasts are so well-integrated into the whole site. Note also how they're only showing the small section of screen that's relevant to the topic; no need to capture the entire desktop. These were done with Captivate.
How scholarly search engines differ, by the UCLA Library. Nice, clean audio. Excellent example of a topic that lends itself to "create once, show as often as necessary". Created with Camtasia Studio.
Screencasting to aid your failing memory.
Sizer can be found here. It's a great free app for quickly resizing any application so your recordings are a consistent size. More tips can be found at Betsy Weber's Screencasting Tips for Beginners. (Betsy works for Techsmith)
The products mentioned during the presentation include:
Techsmith Camtasia Studio
More tools (not necessarily mentioned but that you'll be interested in)
Even more tools (from Wikipedia)
The hosting sites mentioned were:
Here's a really good comparison of almost all the free video hosting sites.
ANTS (Animated Tutorial Sharing) Project
The summary from the man who popularized the genre: What is Screencasting?
UPDATE: Here's my PowerPoint; some folks indicated that they'd prefer to see that rather than the PDF that was made available after the webcast.
