Watching workshop screencast recordings

We added a dual-screen setup to the teacher  computer. We produce two screencasts, for archiving and reviewing, per training held, one of the left and one of the right screen. On a typical desktop computer, you should be able to view both side-by-side, like so (using Windows 7 Aero Snap, just activate the right/left window and on your keyboard, press Windows key + right- or left-arrow):

We hope to have screencast recording software, video drivers and scree/projection hardware that will enable us to provide a single screencast of both screens. However, other upgrades are higher up in the priority list.

LRC student staff start of term training: The PowerPoint

Screencasts for Spring 2012 Student Staff Workshop: LRC layout,, calendaring, tutoring, example Japanese

  1. Here are two screencasts of my presentation:
  2. one for the right screen/participant screen (using the Study1200 teacher to student screen casting). Requires Windows Media Player on PC, like in the LRC: download from MS-SkyDrive.
  3. one for the left screen/projector, where I displayed mostly a PowerPoint. You can watch this in parallel using another player, e.g. the VLC player, like in the LRC. However, it can also stream from MS-SkyDrive.

Screencasts for Fall 2011 Workshop: Computer classroom management in the LRC using Sanako Study 1200

  1. The workshop stayed  “this side of the digital audio lab”, i.e. focused on those generic teaching tasks that the Sanako Study 1200 can facilitate which have the widest teaching application (including in, but also beyond language-skill-courses):
    1. remote controlling student computers,
    2. screen sharing, collaborating with students,
    3. launching applications on students computers,
    4. sending students to webpages,
    5. launching handout files to students and collecting their input back
    6. locking their computers, screens or keyboards,
    7. “clicker” classroom polls, for which I have written a PowerPoint Template you can base your own clicker-like face-to-face class exercises on.
    8. and more…
    9. Here are two screencasts of my presentation:
      1. one for the right screen/participant screen (using the Study1200 teacher to student screen casting). Requires Windows Media Player on PC, like in the LRC: download from MS-SkyDrive.
      2. one for the left screen/projector, where I displayed mostly a PowerPoint. You can watch this in parallel using another player, e.g. the VLC player, like in the LRC. However, it can also stream from MS-SkyDrive.
