Or how about leveraging it to create other video resources, like a reusable eLearning asset library? There is a wide range of other uses for screencasting that you may never have thought of, and incorporating these uses can make a real difference in your daily workflow.
In this session, you’ll explore 10 new ways to use screencasting to improve your eLearning development process and end product.
