Online Teaching Skill Seminar: Creating Narrated PowerPoints with Camtasia + Creating Captions for Videos (2:00 pm, Friday, September 6, 2013, Room 618 Aderhold)

playAn important element of Lloyd Rieber’s massive open online course (MOOC) titled “Statistics in Education for Mere Mortals” is a series of pre-recorded PowerPoint presentations. In this Innovation in Teaching and Technology seminar, Lloyd will demonstrate how to create narrated PowerPoints with Camtasia. Lloyd will also show how to create closed captioning as part of the video to meet basic accessibility standards. (Note: The hard part is creating the transcript. I will show the use of a tool called MacScribe that creates transcripts from audio files. The transcripts are far from perfect and need much editing, but MacScribe has some good editing tools built into it.)

This seminar will immediately follow Lloyd’s seminar “Anatomy of a MOOC” at 1:00 pm on the same day.
