ScreenToaster

ScreenToaster is a way to capture your desktop (not just an image- that's old news). It will create a video of something you're doing on your computer. Plus, you can add audio for narration.

This site has a lot of possibilities. A few might be:
*Software instruction (that's the most obvious),
*Bibliography instruction
*0r any type of online instruction,
*Database instruction for libraries (my example below)
Really anytime you need something to be shown or demonstrated over and over multiple times or if you need it posted online for access anytime...think of all the options. What other uses could we use this for?
Here's my example of using it for teaching how to use the databases. I plan to make more of these with narration to post on the library website.
