I had MUCH more success with these weeks blog post and it was so much fun. I screen casted demilovato.com to show all of you a basic overview of the site. Click on the link here to watch: http://www.screencast.com/t/fJxMzr9jdkxc
The microphone volume was very intense which is probably due to the fact I am a very loud speaker. This was actually my third take of the tutorial to try and get the microphone to sound better by talking softer, so this is the best I can do (sorry). Other than me talking at a volume people consider screaming, this was a very straight forward process. Jing is an extremely easy software to use so I had no problems screen casting.
I had an internship at Verizon Wireless and we screen casted presentations all the time using different software like WebEx and GoToMeeting. We had to sign in on our laptops using a link and then the software would call our work phone so we could converse with people not working in our office. In almost every meeting I was on there was someone screen casting so we could see a presentation or look at a document they wanted to walk us through. A couple times it was my responsibility to screen cast so I learned a couple tricks on how to do it correctly. The skill of knowing how to effectively screen cast is definitely something extremely important when presenting in a professional setting and in every day life. There have been a couple times where I sent my grandma tutorials on how to do something on her computer so she could see the process and mimic what I did.
If we had this project before the commercial one I would have had someone screen cast their process and show it to me so I could have more success!
I hope you enjoyed my post and the video, let me know what you thought!
