So as of today, I am officially a screencaster! I had the opportunity to look up a blog that I found appealing to the eye and of course being that I wanted to make everything theme-related to my blog, I found a blog that was very relevant to mine so of course, I was going to make a screencast of it.
Before I was introduced to WordPress, I was a big fan of Tumblr since I was in my teens. From there, my creative juices began to flow and I would look up blogs pertinent to my cultural upbringing. I was also excited to do this assignment because for one, I always look forward to anything that has to do with media, talking, speaking, or recording a video. I found a blog that brought all West Indian cultures together and the fact that it was simply designed drew my attention to it. This experience was a very easy one, since all I had to do was capture a screen and talk about it whereas compared to the last assignment, I spent a lot more time figuring out how to play with music and adding my own audio and voice to it. This skill could definitely come in handy for any projects or presentations that arise. This is certainly a tool for Youtubers to use or even tech wizzes since they’re always into the most recent gadgets out there and want to do reviews on them. I definitely think that creative projects like youtube video reviews, powerpoint presentations or public speaking projects could definitely benefit from a screencast. Projects utilizing screencasts make them more fun, interesting and appealing to the eye. Now that I have the knowledge of how to use Jing, I am sure that I will be using this tool a lot more in the future for other projects that come to mind.
