Explore options for providing feedback using screen capture. This feature can be used to individually interact with your students.
- [Instructor] Whether you're providing feedback to a student on an essay, or giving feedback to an employee on a project, video can be a great way to share your thoughts and suggestions. You can not only show and tell your ideas for improvement, but you can also add a level of personalization by giving feedback specific to that individual or group. I'm going to give my student Stacey some feedback about a slide presentation she's submitted. I'll record it the same way I would a tutorial video, with screen capture and voiceover.
I'm going to launch Camtasia 9 and select new recording. I'm going to record full screen, I'm not going to use my webcam, although I could. And I'm going to check to make sure that the right headset is selected. Okay, everything looks good. I'm going to hit record and wait for the countdown. Hi, Stacey, I think your project demonstrates some creative and original ideas and you've obviously done a thorough job with your research. Since you'll be giving this presentation live to an audience, you might want to consider using less text and more graphics in your presentation.
You don't want the audience to be so busy reading that they miss what you're saying. If you want to see some examples of what a presentation could look like with less text, check out the samples in the week eight folder in the Google Classroom course page. Great job Stacey, I really enjoyed the work that you put into this. Okay, I'm going to hit F10 to stop the recording and launch Camtasia Studio. I have about 150 students in my class. So I don't want to spend a great deal of time editing and polishing each feedback video.
I'm just going to publish it just like it was captured. We'll walk through the publishing and sharing process a little bit later. Start to finish, this entire feedback video doesn't take any longer than it would for me to write out personalized feedback to a student. And with visuals and examples, the feedback is more valuable than text alone. Now that you know the steps, why don't you go ahead and try creating your own feedback video using Camtasia 9.
