Screencasting and Camtasia

Welcome to Margaret's e-pod, Friday afternoon, September 9, 2005.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jean-Claude Bradley, a chemistry professor at Drexel University, via e-mail this week. He introduced me to "screencasting," the software program, "Camtasia," and his lecture screencasts. In addition, he was kind enough to share with me some tutorials he has produced for novice screencasters.

Here is the link to Jean-Claude's tutorials:

Katrina and Education

Hurricane Katrina has moved educators around the nation to create initiatives to assist displaced college students affected by the devastation. One initiative was developed within a week by R. Schroeder and associates at the University of Illinois Springfield. The Sloan foundation is funding a national offering of online courses that are to begin October 10, 2005. Students from the 26 universities affected by the hurricane may attend online offerings. For more information:
Spread the word so students may benefit from this wonderful educational opportunity during a time of hardship. Miracles do happen!
