Mathtrain.TV: Ep.86, Input Devices via The Forge

Friday, December 10th, 2010

This special episode of Mathtrain.TV is a partial rebroadcast of a TechSmith show called, The Forge.

In this rebroadcast, Matt Pierce is joined by Dave McCollom (both of TechSmith fame) and they discuss different ways to screencast. Specifically, they focus on various input devices one can use to create screencasts.

We are extra excited, because they demonstrated one of our very own Mathtrain videos which was created by “Bob”!

Thanks to Matt, Dave and TechSmith. And thank you for permission to rebroadcast this show. I’m sure many of our viewers will find it interesting and helpful!

We edited the original segment. But go watch their intro and full show…
The original “The Forge” Episode 2, part 1 can be found here.

Mathtrain.TV: Episode 55 “Our First Student Screencast from 2007″

Friday, July 24th, 2009

Here is our first official, student-created mathcast from 2007.  It is the early version,which is not edited too much.  It is a bit longer than most of our math videos.

However, 6th grader “Bob” (not her real name) created this on the spot, with no script and no rehearsal.  It was also her FIRST time ever using Camtasia Studio.  Camtasia Studio is the screen recording software we use.  I thought we should release this as an episode.
