The Innovative Use of Screencasts in Higher Education
This short reflective paper describes the innovative use of the screencasting technique in contemporary Higher Education. The main focus of the work is initially on the use of screencasts in mainstream teaching and student support where examples of screencast usage are demonstrated and evaluated. Later in the paper attention turns to the use of screencasts for staff development or information sharing. Again, examples are provided and briefly analysed. Finally, the author outlines some further opportunities for screencast use and closes with a brief outline of next steps.
