    I’ve been asked how to use slidecasts for distance education.

    A slidecast is an audio-visual medium, so I’d take the content of a distance education course and develop short chunks of information to introduce or overview the topic.

    I imagine your aim would be to engage your students and inspire them to delve more deeply into the topic. Therefore, I’d try to arouse their curiosity with some intriguing questions, interesting or quirky facts or statistics to which they can relate.

    Make your slidecasts:

    Short – some of my best ones are just one minute long – view them here.


    Visual – see Gihan Perera’s webinar on making your content more visual here.


    Not necessarily audio – in fact most you’ll see on slideshare.com do not have a sound track. View this one for hints.

    I love this. This would be a great supplement and a way to work around the busy schedules of people but getting the message out to all. I am going to look at how this can assist in my current programing. Thank you, Ann, you always are thinking ahead and sharing the wisdom.
