Comparing 12 Free Screencasting Tools

Comparing 12 Free Screencasting Tools
Combing through the basic functions and features of a list of tools I’ve become aware of, to select some for further testing. Over the course of the week, the list of Screencasting tools that have been recommended to me, or that I’ve otherwise learned of, has grown to a dozen. I have a goal of trying identify a free tool or set of tools to use to create stand alone tutorials by combining screen images and screen motion with audio. I would also like to have some editing capabilities, so I could combine multiple captures and rearrange the order of these pieces if needed, and to be able to re-record audio annotation if possible. I would also like to have screen annotation capabilities, at least for the screen captures. Given this set of desired functions and features, and the long list of tools, it’s only logical that I briefly review each application to see what they can do.

Technology and Teaching Writing Is it a given that technology enhances the acts of writing, as it does the arts and sciences of film-making, design, engineering, data collection and analyses, and so forth? What about the teaching and learning of writing? In a flurry of recent exchanges (subject “Writing horse-shoe-of-horse-heading-east Technology”) on the Writing Program Administration (WPA) listserv, scholars in writing studies have argued these points in some theoretical and practical depth. Maja Wilson, from the University of Maine, sums up the argument nicely: "Steve [Krause, of Eastern Michigan University], and others were arguing that to teach writing, you need to teach the tools available now and not teach or allow the tools on their way out (pen, pencil), because if you aren't teaching the tools, you aren't teaching writing. I was recently named Southern Connecticut State University, New Haven’s 2011 Outstanding Technological Teacher. The Ups Potential Downs (and Ways to Avoid Them)
