Wednesday, October 21, 2009 - Assignment

We will learn about screen capturing software - We will not only learn about it, we will DO IT!
Your assignment is to research screen capturing software by looking at the links I have provided from Fayetteville school. This is a class similar to yours and I want you to go and click on their projects, take a look at all of them, and then begin preparing your own project.

You will have to download to your computer the softwear you choose to use. Then you will need to begin scripting your story line.

Your assignment is to take this software and produce a finish product that will teach others how to use it. You will figure out all the "what not to do"s" as you go along. Your project, which could be used to compete at JSU, should be detailed, easy to understand, include how to use, the benefits of using it, suggestions for using it, and detailed instruction on how to download, navigate and produce a finished product.

You will have 4 class period to complete this project - You will present to the class on Wednesday, October 28th. You will be graded on your presentation and your appearance which should correspond to FBLA Dress Code guidelines!

Research and then feel free to ask questions! Research first and you may begin experimenting this period.

Record all screen and audio activity on your computer by using the free download
CamStudio**. Following are just a few ways to use CamStudio: create demos for any software programs, create video tutorials for school or business, create video based information on products you sell, and record new tricks and techniques. Students in my Integrated Computer Technology class used CamStudio to create tutorials on how to use the various Microsoft Applications and Web 2.0 tools. Using CamStudio can help students prepare for the business world as they can access and evaluate information through the tutorials, use and manage the information, analyze the media that is presented, create media products, and apply technology effectively by using it as a tool to communicate information. I am linking you to a page on my wikispace where I embedded my students' work samples.
