So taking a cue from Bud the Teacher, I checked out Jon Udell’s post on how he creates his screencasts with Windows Media Encoder. I’d been trying to use Camtasia to do some inhouse training stuff, but it was really difficult to get the right file format and configurations to work with our servers and Windows Media Player. But Encoder did the trick. Really easy, and when I play the file off of our server, it looks crystal clear at full screen. The audio needs a bit of work, but I feel like I’m over a little hump with this.
So anyway, here is a Wikipedia for Educators screencast. It’s about five minutes long, and it could be much better with a bit more planning, but you get the idea. I’ve added it to my feed as an enclosure as well, now that Manila lets me do that. Let me know if something doesn’t work.
