An edutainment introduction for screencasters - Draft drawing - [ID:849] (1/1)

in series: Creative teaching and edutainment.

(Showmedo is undergoing major changes. To report any problems viewing the videos please email us and include browser and OS specifics. Cheers - Kyran.)

We talk about what edutainment is and how formal academia discriminates its power to just children and younglings, while wrongfully advocating that adults are serious and must read thousands of boring lines of text to learn anything, if the subject being studied is to be considered serious. That is old conventionalism that has to stop now, in the era of internet and edutainment. ShowMeDo is a part of this big movement (even if probably unnoticed)

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 gasto
