Hey guys! For this assignment, I used Screencast-O-Matic. This program is amazing. It is quick to use and easy to download. Once I downloaded it, it opened up automatically and was ready to go. Recording and uploading the video onto YouTube was easy because I have a background in working with videos. The only problem I had was finding a good ePortfolio to go with my blog. I had to search all over the web and it took me at least 20 minutes. I finally found a good one and from there the assignment was easy. I thought my work is pretty good since I was able to learn about recording and video-editing before.
I’ve thought about video editing and shooting before as a profession and I might consider it as a career. I do not have a major in the Arts or am really good at it, but I can always give it a try. I’ve edited videos for my fraternity and other organizations. This skill can come in handy as a perk for jobs or positions. I could see me working in my IT career in the future and my boss might need someone to record and edit a company video. I would be able to provide that and maybe get on my boss’s good side. Anyone could benefit from this skill as videos are used for everything nowadays. A creative project could be midterm or final project for a class that can incorporate screencasting. A lot of information can be found throughout the computer screen so screencasting it would be helpful.
This was a fun assignment and I enjoyed using this program. I do recommend anyone to use Screencast-O-Matic and they could even benefit from a donation or two. Screencasting may not be super popular right now, but with enough presence it can get big!
Safe screencasting everyone.
