Vigleo 2.0 for Windows and Vigleo 1.0 for MAC offers you screen video capture feature. Screencasts will help you demonstrate and teach the use of software features.
Creating a screencast helps software developers show off their work. Screencasts is a useful tool for ordinary software users as well to help report bugs (the movie takes the place of potentially unclear written explanations) or to show others how a given task can be accomplished in a specific software environment.
Screencasts are excellent tools for learning how to use computers, and several podcasts have started to teach computer users how to use software through screencasts. Considering the high cost of instructor / faculty led training and the relative ineffectiveness of typical computer based training (CBT) systems, screencasting is likely to become a very popular technique for imparting high-quality knowledge at a low cost.
For example, organizers of computer related seminars may choose to routinely record complete seminars and make them available on DVDs to all attendees for future reference and/or sell these recordings to people who cannot afford the fee of the live seminar or don't have time to attend it. This will generate an additional revenue stream for organizers of seminars and make the knowledge available to a broader audience, generating a win-win situation for everybody.
This strategy of recording seminars is already widely used in fields where using a simple video camera or audio recorder is sufficient to make a useful recording of a seminar. Computer-related seminars need high quality and easily readable recordings of screen contents which is usually not achievable by using a video camera to film the desktop which is usually projected onto the wall by a projector.
Educators are now using screencasts as another means of integrating technology into the curriculum. Students can record video and audio as they demonstrate the proper procedure to solve a problem on an interactive whiteboard
Even the gamers like screencast to show to people what they can do… This feature is offert for free with Vigleo. Hope you’ll enjoy it.
