1920’s Screencasts

I’m learning. You’d think that teaching for 16 years would give me an idea of how I wanted to approach a lecture, but with the technology of screencasting, I have to look at things fresh. For instance, I made these screencasts on the 1920’s with the idea that I would build on them from my PowerPoint notes and then go through the text piece by piece and explain things with more detail.

Well, that may¬† have been how it started, but I saw that my lecture grew as I spoke. I decided that I would try and incorporate website video and images into the project too, and that went ok. Overall, though I saw how limited my topics were and how I didn’t consolidate them as I’d hoped.

Practice will hopefully help. I did enjoy making them. I hope you enjoy watching them as well.
