Creating Screencasts and Podcasts

Screencasts and Podcasts are a great way to provide engaging learning resources to students, whether it’s explaining assessment criteria, summarising the key points of a lecture, or providing video demonstrations. In this Breakfast Café we will look at the technologies available to create these resources and some techniques to help streamline the process.
