1. Three low cost microphones for screencasting

Here I use Audacity to compare three microphones. It shows the progressive improvements achieved by using a USB microphone and a larger desktop microphone. The microphones are: 1) analog Altec Lansing, 2) Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000, 3) Samson C01U.

2. Yes or No on the Background Music ?

Note: I'm not sure what happened to the audio at the beginning. The volume of the background music at the beginning does not come though as it sounded in Audacity where I mixed the music with the narration. So listen to the very end for the music.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Tim
