23 Things – Thing 12 Podcasts

Thing 12 looks at podcasts and videos.  I can’t see my doing my own podcast any time soon (I can actually hear the sighs of relief from here), but one tool that does look useful is focussed on Screencasting.

Screencasting is where you can make a video of what you are doing on your screen – which you can also record a voiceover/sound track to if you want.  I can really see some potential in this for demonstrating analysis techniques or how I manipulate telethon/mailing data (obviously using dummy data).

Sceencast-O-Matic is a free tool that allows you to do this, recording ideas up to 15 minutes long.  I really like the sound of this; no ideas for one as yet, but I’m sure there will be!
