TECH SET Interview: Greg Notess

Submitted by Daniel A. Freeman on July 26, 2012 - 9:19am

Greg Notess was inspired to write Screencasting for Libraries after presenting workshops on the topic. Workshops get people started, he says, but a book allows more in- depth treatment and is available for reference when it's time to review. The book features 12 implementation projects, which are linked to Greg's companion web page. At a basic level, you will learn how to use free software to make a quick step-by-step as you show a student how to use a database interface. More advanced projects get into Using commercial software like Camtasia to edit video, create call-outs or use other functions for a more polished tutorial.
