Smartcasting

Smartcasting: I’ve mentioned before how I believe screencast ‘how-to’ videos help explain some topics (like how to use software) more effectively than written step-by-step instructions. Apparently, some math teachers think so, as well. Here’s a website [it uses a wiki platform] of math tutorial screencasts called mathcasts.org.

    Couldn’t agree with you more. Even what appear to be relatively simple procedures like subscribing to a podcast work well as screencasts.

    Since they’re so relatively easy to produce these days, I hope we’ll see a lot more. Perhaps even an iTunes category for screencasts. Perhaps there’s already a useful directory of screencasts somewhere.
