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.
