• Screencasting Tips

    • What is your why? Establish your purpose for creating videos.
    • Limit your videos to under 5 minutes. Need it to be longer? Consider breaking it up by topic.
    • Personalize it by including your webcam image in one of the corners of the screen.
    • Test your video on multiple devices, if possible. Test your access in an incognito window.
    • Get comfortable with one tool. Don't feel like you need to be the expert on them all. Teaching is overwhelming enough as it is.
    • Make sure your videos are accessible. Viewers have various abilities and your videos need to have captioning. Pro Tip: Use the built-in Google Slides captioning!
    • Think about the best way to make your video available to your audience. Let it live online (no need to download), set appropriate privacy/access settings, and send the link!
