Animated about learning

Cindy Becker writes:

Over the summer we are creating a series of module outline screencasts, ready to welcome our new students in the autumn. This has led to some interesting discussions amongst colleagues about the best format for these screencasts; as a result I am exploring animated screencasts for our students. Although a more formal approach, with plenty of information, seems appropriate for core areas of the curriculum, advice on other matters might, I think, usefully be offered in a less formal way.

So far I have produced two of these screencasts:

Screenshot academic placement screencast


Screenshot careers learning screencast


If you would like to offer suggestions of any other areas about which we could produce similar screencasts, do get in touch on
