Screencast as storytelling tool, #followwomenjournas video

Events that take place completely online can be captured using programs that record what you see on your screen. Those recordings are called screencasts. You might have run across them as video tutorials or promotional videos, but they can also be used to tell a story.

I used screenr to create this “screencast story” that explains the role my blog post played in the #followwomenjournas “hashtag movement” sparked by a @Mediabistro tweet.

Once the video is playing, make sure to click on the “View in HD” link to watch it in the same size it was recorded.

I would love to see something like this done by someone with experience creating quality screencasts. I must have violated every best practice out there. Pleas feel free to share any tips in the comments below.

Here are a few other takes on the birth of the #followwomenjournas hashtag:

  1. Nice post Kevin. I think you did a fine job on this screencast showing how you can use the web to tell your story by surfing web pages with voice annotation. Well done.
