Jing is a great way to make a short video of screenshots on your computer. It's free and works on both a MAC and a PC. Once you create the video, you can upload it onto Screencast and give your clients, students, or coworkers links to the video. I use it for my coworkers when I'm creating job aids for what I do. I also use it for my staff so that they have job aids for what they need to do even when I'm not available. Here is a screencast I made for new workers that I hire to get them familiar about the university.
While I have my reservations about Voki, I do find that it provides for an interesting contrast for students. If they always see the instructor, it might be nice to see someone else. In this video below, I used Kizoa as a slideshow and then used Voki as a narrator. It's a different mix for sure and not one that I would do again. I would though use both tools again in the future. Kizoa is a great slideshow to video production and is free. If you haven't played with either tool, you should check them out!
I tried out iMovie for the first time in a course in the Summer of 2011. It's a great tool and very easy to pick up and utilize. Below is the production of my trial. In the course, we were given a story and then asked to finish it. The narration at the beginning is the story that we were asked to complete. While the story line and the cooking show are not serious, I noticed that iMovie provided me with lots of options. For MAC users, I definitely suggest using iMovie. It's free, easy to use, and easy to export into YouTube.
Here is a podcast about a particular color. This is my first podcast and I used Audacity to create it.
What is audacity?
Audacity is a free tool that may appear a bit old, but is very stable. You can create a podcasts, add audio to a presentation, and record/edit sound.
It's free. Everyone love free. It's available on MACs and PCs. It's very easy to use. You can share the files easily too.Es gratis.
It doesn't create MP3 files immediately. The encoder really should be part of the initial download in my opinion. I did notice some issues with the MP3 encoder downloading for my MAC though.
¿Que es Audacity?
Audacity es una herramienta gratis que puede aparecer un poco viejo, peroes muy estable. Usted puede crear un podcast, añadir sonido a una presentación, y grabar y editar sonido.
Todo el mundo quiere gratis. Está disponible en Mac y PC. Es muy fácil de usar. También usted puede compartir los archivos con facilidad.
No crea archivos de MP3 inmediatamente. El codificador debería ser parte de la descarga inicial, en mi opinión. Me di cuenta de algunos problemas con la descarga del codificador de MP3 para la MAC.
