iTunes is a free download that will work on both Microsoft Windows and Apple OS X.

Presentation in 3G Format Lastly, you can download the presentation as a 3GP file. This file will play on mobile devices that support the Third-Generation Platform standard for mobile devices.

You are recommended to download and print the accompanying presentation handout (PDF).

Summary


ScreenFlow is a screencasting tool that captures live desktop video, microphone and computer audio, and video camera input (internal or external) and then allows for editing after you have finished recording. There are other similar products out there in the marketplace, but I have found ScreenFlow to be the best tool for ad-hoc lecture capture as well as creating video content for blended and online learning.


ScreenFlow is Mac OS X (Leopard) only. I consider the application to be sufficient cause to migrate from Microsoft Windows to the Apple platform.


The video and session handout presents quick and easy way to create streaming and downloadable video.

Vodcasting in the classroom


I was lucky enough to present at the 14th Annual Sloan-C International Conference on Online Learning this year. My presentation (Vodcasting in the Classroom) explains how I use simple hardware and software to podcast and vodcast classroom lectures. An M4V version of the presentation (which plays in/on iTunes, QuickTime, iPods and iPhones) can be downloaded here.

There are two PDFs that accompany the presentation:

  1. Presentation Handout
  2. Presentation Supplement

I have provided links to the hardware and software that I use to record my classes (and convert to podcasts/vodcasts):
