Here is a test of Screencast-O-Matic's free screen capture.
After a very disappointing year of clinics last year, I wasn't sure what to expect for me first clinic this year. Since I plan on starting a regular Podcast about Technology in the Schools, I thought this might be a useful clinic and I might get a couple of tips or good ideas to make that easier. I got a ton of great ideas!
First of all, he introduced the audience to Posterous. On first glance, it looks like just another free blog site and maybe not even as good as Blogger or Wordpress. Since I have used Posterous for about a year, I knew that it was much more powerful but I had no idea how powerful. There two big advantages for Posterous. First is the ability to submit posts by simply sending an email to an address so many people can contribute and also that it will post to other sites like Twitter and Facebook. If you are trying to target a wider audience, this is definitely a plus. Second is the ease at which you can incorporate other media into your posts. Simply attach a picture, video, pdf, or sound file from your phone, iPad, computer, etc. and Posterous formats it and creates a player for it in the post. As he states, "Blogging and podcasting should not be about the act of putting something online; it should be about Communication." This makes it about as simple as it can get. If publishing is as easy as sending an email, anyone can do that.
This handout will help you with the setup and the modifications you need to make to get up and going.
Hope this worked out well.
