This semester, Chinese New Year will result in two days of lost lectures. This need not be the case. Using tools made familiar to you during previous eLearning Weeks, you can record lectures which your students can view at their leisure.

Pre-record a webcast
The simplest option is to pre-record your webcast. You can use the webcast request form to arrange to have your lecture recorded before the holiday and have it made available for viewing during and after the holiday.

Use Breeze
If you want to do-it-yourself, you can use Breeze (creation on Windows and PowerPoint only, viewing on Win/Mac/ Linux with the Flash Player plugin installed) to create standalone online presentations with audio narration, simple quizzes and interactivity. This will be available online to your students as a Flash-based presentation.

Use screen recording
Not using Windows or PowerPoint? Need to display a website or to demonstrate software? You can use screen recording software instead. Think of it as a virtual camera pointed at your computer screen. CIT provides Camtasia Relay and Ink2Go! for screen recording purposes. Both allow you to record your screen while you narrate. Camtasia Relay creates an online video while Ink2Go! creates a video file which should be uploaded to the Multimedia Bank in IVLE.
