02- Podcasting for Screencasters

Lon Naylor from ScreencastStudios.com and LearnCamtasia.com delivers a tutorial and deconstruction of how an audio podcast of 13 minutes can be the basis in creating a screencast, with interesting visual story-telling and a call-to-action. He took a portion of an online webinar to help explain the benefits of podcasting to screencasters in this deconstruction, and he explains some of the tools and templates that he used or created to make this happen.

Although this is an audio podcast episode, you can go to the screencast and visual tutorial at:

As you will hear in this audio episode, Lon Naylor’s deconstruction shows how a plan with a simple template and consistency can deliver a screencast that can meet the overall objectives of a call-to-action:

– a template created in PowerPoint(R);

– consistent typestyle, typeface, font and color schemes;

– consistent visual layout, including a single graphic image and a single phrase for each of the nine elements of the presentation;

– bulleted lists can be used for lists, as they are “dissolved” in; and

– simple, non-exaggerated animations (i.e., slow fly-ins and move-ins) can add to the visual engagement with the viewer and listener.
