My favorite quote about the session was from Jason Zannon at Democracy in Action:
Beth Kanter delivers herself of a tour de force on screencasting. Naturally, everything from and about it is immediately available online. It is quite possible that Beth is some manner of prototypical superhuman android sent from the future to bring nonprofit tech.
Actually, as I mentioned during the session, the reason I put everything online (it was all done a few weeks in advance as part of my preparation) it is because of my evil plan. If more of us are screencasting, then all I have to do is remix other people's work, provided they've licensed their material using creative commons licensing.
I've heard that there will be more screencasting or at least one as this blogger notes.
I ended up attending "Screencasting: The latest in technology training," lead by Beth Kanter. It was another full room, but I could see most of the presentation. Since we will use screencasting for much of the training materials and the "rollout" of the new Commons, the suggestions offered in this workshop--e.g. no more than 3.5 minute videos, map out the screencast before you actually film it, create a storyboard, write a script, use music.
I've put the presentation (and almost all my other presentations) into Slide Share. I hope to see more nonprofit technology presentations in there. There's some execellent content there.
And, if you are so inclined, you can vote a thumbs up as I entered it into the contest. I only did so because one of the prizes was a laptop and my current one is on its last legs.
