Dr. Z's Creative Cookbook for Collaborative Communication - Part Deux

Once again we are at ISTE '12.

What a wonderful opportunity to meet old friends, learn new things, and walk in the sun.

Here is a link to my Slideshow for my Cookbook presentation.  Unfortunately it is just a .pdf for now, but I will post the real posting later.

  • Twitter search for #Drzreflects (As time progresses, these tweets may disappear.)
  • Collaborative Google notes that were created by one of the attendees.  These were open for everyone to contribute during the presentation but have been locked to keep the content valid.
Share Your Screen
  • Join.Me - Share your screen with up to 250 people simultaneously.
  • Google Hangout - Watch a short introductory video about using Hangout with fellow students.
Audio Annotation
  • AudioBoo - Create an audio response to your students' work.  Just send them the URL to the audio file. Includes a mobile app. These files are not private. 
  • Chirbit -  Another tool for creating an audio response to your students' work.  Just send them the URL to the audio file. Includes a mobile app. These files CAN be made private.
Screen Casting
  • Jing - Free brother-version of Camtasia by TechSmith. I have used this as my default screencaster for years.  Limit of 5 minutes. You download the program to your computer.
  • Screencast-o-Matic - Just discovered this option this summer. This system will allow you to record up to 15 minutes. You can save your files in .mp4, .avi, and .wmv formats.  It is all online.
Video Annotating and Editing
  • VideoANT - Provide written notations for a video as it progresses. The viewer progresses through a collection of notes as the video plays.
  • WeVideo - Full video editing capability online. 
I hope that these resources are useful for you.  If you have any additional resources that you would like to share, add them to the comments section.

  1. My Screen Recorder Pro will work better for you. It is an excellent screencasting tool. Records your screen and audio from the speakers or your voice from the microphone - or both simultaneously. The recordings are clear and look great when played back on your PC or uploaded to YouTube. It will record directly to AVI, WMV, MP4, or FLV. Just perfect for creating tutorials, demos, and presentations. Plus, java is not required and there are no limits on recording length. Also, the recordings play back on any device.

  2. Ron, I was just looking for My Screen Recorder Pro. Turns out that it only runs on Windows? The download that I found doesn't run on my Mac. I will have to run this at work. It looks like a good program with lots of capabilities. Thanks for the comment.
