Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper overviews several situations in which screencasts were developed using screen capturing software to enhance the learning experience in engineering courses. This software allows an engineering instructor with no background in producing training videos to easily produce computer-based videos customized for teaching specific topics. It can be effectively used to provide students instruction outside class in situations in which standard in-class lectures would not be efficient or effective. The particular software package used in this work was Camtasia Studio. Some discussion of video file sizes is included in this work.
