Another challenge is that most screencasts are recorded at a higher resolution than used in the elearning courses.

The good news is that as monitors get bigger scaling down won’t be as much an issue. Ideally we can scale the software down to the desired recording resolution. Above is an example of a PowerPoint screen scaled down to fit in a small recording window.

Or in a steel mill. Or at a telephone switchboard. Work and workplaces have gone through enormous transformations between the mid 19th and late 20th centuries. You can view these changes through photographs held by the National Archives and Records Administration. These historical photographs document: clothing, locales, conditions, and conflict in our workplaces. The distinctiveness of America's workforce was shaped by many factors—immigration and ethnicity, slavery and racial segregation, wage labor and technology, gender roles, class, as well as ideals of freedom and equality. Most importantly, these images honor those who built this country—the working men and women of America.
