SCREENCASTING-Trying to describe how to navigate a website or program to a friend, colleague, or student can be challenging, but showing them how to do something on their computer screen is much clearer. Screencasting lets you create a "video" of your computer screen, so that you can coach someone through whatever computer-based steps they need to get the project done!
