Bad screencast videos abound… [with video]
I just watched a couple of really bad screencast videos that had no intros/outros, zooms, pans or callouts. In one video you just simply watched someone’s boring Powerpoint presentation with bullets points and too much text on the slides – the other video forced the viewer to watch someone’s computer screen without zooming in and highlighting the steps they were taking… basically all the things I’ve been learning NOT to do.
The worse (and most encouraging) part is that one of these people was promoting the other’s webinar to teach participants how to create videos. That’s encouraging to me because the more people who produce bad videos – the better my videos will look. 🙂
After watching, I felt compelled to post another of the videos I produced in my internship program – because after what I just saw – these look pretty good!
