The latest buzzword among Web 2.0 folks is screencasting."*cue excited, breathy voice* "You know, like podcasting but of your screen." This amounts to making a movie of your monitor while you narrate the action.

Um...sure. I did this in 1996, though it was minor torture back then--multiple programs, extra cables, hardware, scripting and overdubbed audio edited in after the visual were recorded. Now a single piece of software does the screen capture and audio recording. I've been trying out Snapz Pro which took a bit of getting used to, but gives good results. I'm improving with practice.

I've done four screencasts for Collectik with more to come. It is a good tool for training people who are visual or aural learners.
