Online teacher training videos win JISC’s Outstanding ICT initiative of the year 2008
JISC, the UK organisation promoting the use of ICT in teaching, learning and research, recently announced the winners of the Outstanding ICT initiative of the year award. The big winner is the Teacher Training Videos site.
Some might scoff at this as being basic, but it is an effective demonstration of user-generated content. Russell is a teacher, so he created these ‘how-tos’ with other teachers in mind.
He practices what he preaches. Besides using Camtasia to create Teacher Training Videos, he also uses it to provide feedback to students about their assignments. You can view an example here. You can also see another example of this in the video embedded above. (The text is not so clear in this video.)
Camtasia is commercial software. TechSmith, the company that produces Camtasia, has basic but freely available screen recording software called Jing, which is available for Mac and PC.
