Join Chris Mattia for an in-depth discussion in this video Learners become teachers, part of Camtasia Studio 8 Essential Training.
When did you truly master the subject matter that you teach every day?…Was it high school? College? Graduate school? On the job?…For most of us, we do gain a great deal of understanding through school, and…other real world experiences.…However, when you had to teach your subject matter to a classroom of…students for the first time, that's when you really buckle down, and learn to…master the material.…It's quite simple really; when you have to struggle with teaching someone else, we…naturally have to develop a very deep understanding of the materials.…
So why don't we have our students teach the materials as a way of…assessing there learning?…Tools such as Camtasia not only make this possible, but entirely feasible.…Let's say you're teaching a biology class.…Instead of having your students simply complete all the even number problems in…Chapter 4, assign the students to record a screencast to teach the other…students how to complete one, or even two of the problems.…Each student could then tackle a smaller subset of the problems.…
Follow along as Chris creates an elearning project from start to finish with Camtasia Studio's tools. Discover how to add animation, PowerPoint slideshows, quizzes, and other effects that boost the interactivity and visual interest of your screencasts.
