Jo Gakonga: Making great screencast videos – some helpful tips

Screencast videos (voiced-over videos made with a computer and showing whatever appears on the screen) can be used for all kinds of on-line learning and training and are becoming more and more popular as a way to present information on-line. This might be as part of a flipped classroom approach in language teaching or teacher training or for on-going teacher development. They are not technically difficult to produce but making them an engaging medium can present more of a challenge. Whilst no trained expert, in three years of making teacher training videos for www. elt-training. com I have learnt a lot (often the hard way!) about how to make them engaging. Come and see what’s in my bag of tricks on how to maximize their motivational potential.
