The use of screencasts in mathematical and scientific education

César Córcoles


One issue that tends to be forgotten when dealing with the creation of multimedia learning objects such as screencasts is the time taken to create them. Available resources, especially time, are often very limited. An analysis of the relationship between the resources invested to create these objects and their effect on teaching can be very useful. We look at three different cases of producing learning resources, based on interviews, and extract basic preliminary conclusions as to the importance of time for determining whether screencasts should be produced and how.
