Screencasts are video clips, usually consisting of captured computer screen content. They can have accompanying audio commentary or some have text call-out comments instead. Typical screencasts may be of a PowerPoint presentation with audio commentary or demonstrations of how to use particular features of computer software packages. We have some screencast guides on the ipark website here.
